Upcoming Movies – The Hobbit (2012)

Upcoming Movies – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
(Opening Date: December 14, 2012)


And now, a two month old trailer!

The Hobbit is the prequel to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. The book The Hobbit is quite dis-similar in tone to The Lord of the Rings (it is much more kid friendly), so it will be interesting to see how they tie this to the previous movies.

After much speculation, director Peter Jackson has returned to the series. Martin Freeman is the new Bilbo, and a more perfect casting there could not be. A lot of the old gang is back (including a few characters who were not in the books). Ian Holms reprises his role as “old Bilbo”, Elijah Wood is back as Frodo, and even Orlando Bloom will appear as Legolas. There are good reasons to bring them back though, so hopefully it won’t seem jarring.

The trailer is below.

I must admit to getting goosebumps when that song kicks in. The movie seems very close to the tone of The Lord of the Rings, but perhaps not as intense. That is fine by me, as The Hobbit has to build up to the first three.

I think the footage we see here is purely from the first movie, which will be released in December 2012. The second part, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will come in December 2013.
