Those visuals are certainly unexpectedly beautiful but if anything it makes me more skeptical. Really don't like the idea of telling Tolkiens story filled with heavy handed allusions to LOTR.

Yes, I've only heard good things about it. Hopefully I'll get to see it at some point.

yov, I took the heavy-handed allusions to LOTR to be more a product of typical trailer editing; but I was happy to see strong ties to the rest of the legendarium, and an emphasis on the fellowship of the TCBS (as well as his love affair with Edith).

Good: the forest dance that inspired Beren/Lúthien

That looks amazing!

I can't read the tiny writing at the end - is it going to be in theatres?

I really like the trailer (lots of fan-service aside - like the Balrog's face in that sword clash), and I like Hoult as an actor. Here's hoping!

Btw, I'm having trouble logging in from my phone. Every time I log in, it keeps logging me out. Works fine on a PC though. Any idea how to fix this?

That's strange. I don't know why that would be. :scratch:
