Ah…what might have been….
You can’t help but wonder if the delays in the HOBBIT production had never happened, we would be watching a Guillermo-directed HOBBIT teaser. However, as the cliche goes: “past is prologue”. A fresh start is underway for Guillermo with PACIFIC RIM (now filming in Toronto), and the legion of fans (legion? how many people in a legion?) are impatiently waiting for a first glimpse of GDT’s mechanized monster movie.
So as THE HOBBIT teaser is released – and it is fantastic – we strain for a glimpse of GDT’s fingerprints on it (he IS co-writer still), but really all I find is a “what might have been” sensation in the back of my mind. I’m sure Guillermo has the same feeling.
Enjoy the teaser!
