Synopsis: A curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug.
Release Date: December 14, 2012
Thoughts: As December draws ever near we inch closer and closer to the release of the next trilogy from Peter Jackson featuring middle earth, hobbits, dragons, wizards, and one shiny ring. Boasting some incredible visuals by mere trailer standards, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey promises so much more in sheer epic-ness with a new filming technique said to be almost uncomfortably life-like and non-cinematic. I don’t really want to let on how much I’m looking forward to this because then it will all be too real and before I know it I’ll be waiting another year for Part 2. Whereas the first trailer for this was metered and intense, the new preview injects some lighter levity into the mix while still showcasing the grandly excellent vistas Jackson has in store for us.
