This is the second trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The last trailer was released last December, so it has been a while since we have seen anything new about this highly anticipated film. I am going to assume that this is the last trailer for the film with its release date only three months away.
The cast includes (but definitely not limited to) Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly, Andy Serkis, and Richard Armitage. I posted a more thorough cast list on the first trailer’s post. Guillermo del Toro, Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens wrote the screenplay with Peter Jackson directing the film.
The trailer is made to be seen in 3D because of how the words are shown in the trailer. I do like a trailer that uses humor, and this trailer does have it. Yup, can’t wait to see this. Question is will I be seeing it in 3D?
“The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome 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 Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs 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 ingenuity 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.”
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is in theatres December 14, 2012.
