Then they are misleading a lot of people with their "in engine footage" tag at the beginning. Tricksy hobbits.
Bit like a used car lot showing video or brochure of a Tesla starting from zero, with zero emissions, and fuel consumption, high end interior, then delivering a 1998 diesel Passat wagon.

Honestly I don't care if the graphics are that spectacular or not, I just want them (and trust them) to recreate the feel of BT as closely as possible to the original, but with modern niceties.
But don't resort to shenanigans - come on. That's just asking for trouble later on when the final product doesn't look anything like that. Maybe they assume people won't remember two years from now, how the original trailer looked?
