The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Is Here!

Quote:
A few days ago Peter Jackson announced that, in celebration of Tolkien week, a second, full-length trailer would be released for the first installment in his Hobbit trilogy, titled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. For many a fan, this is the first new footage they’ve been treated to since the teaser premiered some nine months ago; others will recognize that a healthy chunk of the new trailer features excerpts from the 12 minutes of material previewed at the Hobbit Comic-Con panel.

An Unexpected Journey continues to look like a visually-magnificent treatment of J.R.R. Tolkien’s source novel, as you would expect from the filmmakers behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Middle-earth is as gorgeous a fantasy realm as ever, thanks to Jackson’s expertise at capturing the New Zealand landscapes in all their majesty – not to mention, improvements in CGI over the past nine years since Return of the King was released in theaters.


Moreover, this trailer offers a taste of the lighter tone Jackson and his collaborators are aiming for with the first Hobbit installment, when compared to the weightiness of the second and third Rings movies. Not only are the stakes lower, but the colorful Dwarves lend themselves to comedic antics. So far, the humor in An Unexpected Journey is broader than anything since the Shire opening to Fellowship of the Ring, but the jokes don’t seem too forceful – nor do they appear to diminish the dramatic atmosphere of the film’s action-packed portions (again, so far).
Here is the official synopsis for An Unexpected Journey, followed by a collection of screenshots from the latest trailer:

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), 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 (Ian McKellen), Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). 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 (Andy Serkis).

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile 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.

What a franchise. It should be in everybody's top ten. Can you believe I have a friend who has not seen the LOTR yet. Blasphemy!

Anybody knows what happened to the dwarves in LOTR. Never read The Hobbit. Did their entire civilization get wiped out by Sauron.

We need to put both of em in a room and force em to watch it Orange Clockwork style.

Just finished reading the whole history of the dwarfs in the Hobbit/LOTR realm. Pretty cool stuff --->

I think when you look at fantasy books many can trace their lineage back to J.R. Tolkien and that includes Harry Potter, Game Of Thrones, among others. What a timeless story with rich characters.

The LOTR series are some of my favorite movies and this looks to be cut from the same cloth. I'm sure it'll be great.

What do you mean? The orcs raided and killed every living dwarf in Moria, which was a major dwarven city, but there were other big dvarwen cities in the Third Age that was untouched by the war of the ring, such as the Iron Hills and the Blue Mountains.

Thanks for the pics, I am pretty sure I saw this before a movie the other night. Looks like a good one. I'm going to it on the night it opens, already bought a ticket because my cinema always gets sold out for new flicks.

Yeah I am definitely going to see this one as soon as it opens, I don't care what the critics of the LOTR movies say, these films are entertaining as all hell. If I'm gonna be a picky nerd I'm gonna say Thorin Oakenshield looks way to much like a stud and Aragorns little brother than a dwarf.

Hah...hah...I actually did a quick read through in their history from the first age to LOTRS series. Pretty cool stuff... I do remember they got wiped out by the orcs and the Balrog, but wanted to know what happened to the rest.

This thing is going to be a disaster.

It's at 75% on RT already. Once reviewers who aren't on the take start to get their hands on this thing it's only going to go down and down.

Compare that 75% to the absurd ratings other book-based blockbusters like The Hunger Games tend to get early on before the legit reviewers get their hands on it, and it doesn't look good.

The first time I saw how they designed the dwarves for this thing I knew it was going to be awful. I'll stick with the animated film which is absolutely phenomenal.
