I never dreamt of the day we would looking forward to another trilogy of films from Middle Earth and of course 2 months time the first of those films will be with us, The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey. To kick off today’s proceedings we have the second tv spot from the film which feature our first look at the Trolls and the first encounter with Bilbo, a story which older Bilbo tells the hobbit children in the fellowship of the ring. This spot gives us some lovely sweeping views of Middle Earth and a little more screen time for the Dwarves who provide some new dialogue and mayhem.
Ten years on since The Return of The King was on our screens (yes 10 years!!!) and today we still enjoying the legacy of Lord Of The Rings which is good news for The Hobbit as the film wont need the enormous push as the name The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey will sell its self and 14th December will be that day.
The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Mark Hadlow, Graham McTavish, Dean Ogorman, Peter Hambleton, Aidan Turner, Jed Brophy, John Callen, Adam Brown, Ken Stott, William Kircher, Andy Serkis, and Richard Armitage.
The Hobbit follows the journey of 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 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.
