What scene you didn't recognize from the book? It's Bilbo's House, Trools, Misty Mountains, Darkwood... Maybe you refer to Galadriel showing, as she (personaly) is not mentioned in the Hobbit. But then again, Gandalf told that he have to left them to go to the (white) council, and we all now that Galadriel will be there.
So, everything in the trailer is just from the book.
As for me, I am not having too much fate in Piter Jackon.
He ruined (imho) the LOTR trilogy by making some of the scenes over-pathetic.
Sure, LOTR had (and still have) one of the greatest atmosphere, costumes, battles, and I really like that parts, but when it comes to the emotional scenes, Peter just failed.
He also failed in character development and totally (unnecessary) he ruined some characters from the book.
- Gandalf at first.
Instead of brilliant, energetic, rhetoric, charismatic Gandalf from the book, we see a tired old man that can't be a leader even to the kids.
Again, lack of charisma. He looks like Aragorn, but it doesn't feel like Aragorn. When he gives an command, it sounds so weak, that is looking funny. Also, those long pathetic scenes with Aragorn and Arwen was so boring and pointless, that I wanted to skip them even when watching them for the first time.
From the other side, Saruman and Bilbo turned out very well.
