    All you Arwen-bashers relax, Aragorn looks to receive Anduril from Elrond, along with a little pep talk. We see Arwen telling her old man to give Aragorn the sword, we see an Elvish smith reforging the broken blade, Elrond presenting it to Aragorn in a tent before he enters the Paths of the Dead, and Aragorn whipping it out of the scabbard and holding it. Very cool!

    And now we only have to wait a few more days for the full trailer to be released online!!! :banana:

    Hmmm made more sense with Arwen bringing it since she left Rivendell and needs a place to go.

    How does Elrond get to Rohan in time to give it to Aragorn, anyway?

    It's a little known fact that Elves actually invented the helicopter :D That Sikorsky guy just dug up some Elven artefacts and built his own version!

    I doubt its Arwen. What a major character step PJ created if it is though.

    No, watching the trailer again, they just look to be 2 anonymous Rivendell Elves. One holding the blade, the other beating, then just the one reflected in the quenching water.

    That ain't Arwen, folks. I'm a Tolkien fan, as big as they come. But I'm not against sinking low enough to point out Liv Tyler's hotness. That blacksmith is no Liv Tyler.

    It might be a little late in the story to mention "Oh yeah, and Elrond has 2 sons as well, not just Arwen!" So it's probably just an anonymous Elven smith.

    I would agree with that. If they introduced the two sons now, most people would be going "Hey, why didn't they mention that earlier?"
