The first trailer for Peter Jackson‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, the first of two films based on the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, is now on the internet!


The preview was released on which means you can watch it in all its HD glory on that site or stream it via the video below.

The Hobbit‘ follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who embarks on 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 encounters 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.


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ will be released on the 14th December, 2012 in 2-D, 3-D and IMAX 3-D. The second part, titled ‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again‘, will be released a year later on the 13th December, 2013!
