"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows 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 ofguile 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 set to hit theaters December 14th; The Desolation Of Smaug will arrive December 13th, 2013; There And Back Again is scheduled to be released July 18th, 2014.

Getting closer! A perfect way to cap off a fantastic year of cinema :D

I know the trilogy extension looks like a cash grab (and hell, it probably is) but [frick] it!

I'm reserving full judgment until I see all 3. Who knows, they could just end up being pretty god damn amazing :D

Alright little hobbit, impress me!

It was a hobbit hole. And that means comfort.

I am stoked they turned it into a trilogy! We now get to see two big battles because of it.

that opening line from the book is one of the most iconic ever, and im glad they seem to say it in the movie

what a great way to finish off a good year of movies;)

Can't wait! As for the running time and it being three movies, that just means that this one, unlike most movie adaptations of books (LotR included) won't have anything cut out but rather we'll actually get more. Which is only gravy in my book, baby!

After re-watching LotR Trilogy on Blu-ray a couple of weeks ago, it is truly a masterpiece of Cinema. If it was made into 4 parts I would still trust Peter Jackson, he will not butt hurt us fans.

Like @Kaedus said it could be a cash grab but hell its the guy who brought us MIDDLE EARTH to life, it will deliver. I am not saying it will be LotR but it will still be a great fun ride back to Middle Earth and that is all I am asking for.
