First trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey



Here it it, the first teaser for the prequel to The Lord of The Rings trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Jounrey [HOBIT], has premiered on Apple.   After years in legal limbo followed by years in development and Guillermo Del Toro to direct at one time, the live-action feature adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy tome is finally coming to the big screen with director Peter Jackson [PJACK] rightfully at the helm.   The trailer reveals the return of familiar favorites Ian McKellen [IMCKE] as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett [CBLAN] as Galadriel and Andy Serkis [ASERK] as Gollum with Martin Freeman [MAFRE] starring as Ian Holm's Bilbo Baggins.  This being Hollywood, The Hobbit has been split into two parts with the first film set for release on December 14, 2012.

 

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever ... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths ofguile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities ... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
