Feast your eyes on a younger, sprier Gollum, a young, mutated Hobbit in his prime if you will. All kidding aside, Peter Jackson's prequel to the much beloved Lord of the Rings trilogy looks rather astounding and this latest trailer should quiet any concern that fans have had about the tone and characters.

UPDATE:













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.

Greengo - 9/19/2012, 6:48 AM
Meh.
Feedthemachine - 9/19/2012, 6:50 AM
Well, that could have been worse.

TheAmazingSlade - 9/19/2012, 7:01 AM
Well, this looks very promising, I'm already excited. Bring it!!!
Marvelboyliam1981 - 9/19/2012, 7:03 AM
This isn't a CBM so why is it here? It belongs over at ign. Just stick to what the sites for IMO
Marvelboyliam1981 - 9/19/2012, 7:04 AM
Oh and as for the trailer and thought of these movies. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz
scarecrow007 - 9/19/2012, 7:05 AM
It's great, but I wish it showed how Smaug will look.

My grandfather gave the Hobbit book when I was about 9 years old, I read it cover to cover. As well as LOTR. We went to see every movie together, as a tradtion. I joked with him that I would be 19 years old, when we went to see The Hobbit together. I was so excited to relive that tradtion again. He died last July. The Hobbit just doesnt give me that excitment anymore.

I miss you granddad.

Looks great. Idk if it's just the trailer but I feel it's lacking suspense and awesomeness that the first there had. This trailer makes it feel way more lighthearted. Hoping for more of a serious dark grand epic feel. All in all I'll be seeing this anybody am very excited and have high hopes

@Marvelboyliam1981

Quit Moaning..."In 2008, CBM expanded its coverage to include all SciFi,Fantasy and Horror related properties, but retains it's main focus upon comic book movies."

If you don't want to read it, don't read it, quite simple to be honest. Besides, a film like the Hobbit is one the 'cbm' crowd are likely to be excited for too anyway.

Is it December yet? :(
HavocPrime - 9/19/2012, 7:18 AM

Dragonbraaaaiiiinnn!!!
HavocPrime - 9/19/2012, 7:21 AM
And what is with the all adverts on the vidoes, seriously annoying now
NOID - 9/19/2012, 7:23 AM
I hate to be that guy but... nothing really looked real while i was watching this... all the cgi (besides gollum) looked off.... the sets didnt feel real... The one thing about LOTR is that i always felt like it had a realness to it.... i don't know, we'll see
jessepostal - 9/19/2012, 7:24 AM
Omg!!!!!!! This looks stupid :)
sarahsatire - 9/19/2012, 7:26 AM
@Catwoman1 My condolences. You should definitely continue the tradition and see it for him. It would make you happy, and your grandpa. :)
CoulsonLives - 9/19/2012, 7:26 AM
Why are so many non fans of the books hatin on this movie? You haters are unintelligent to appreciate Art as this...
I hate you "ites"... Can't we like everything and be positive? I hate you internet for creating stupid people... I thank you Internet for Youtube, Facebook and Comicbookmovie.com :)
titansupes - 9/19/2012, 7:30 AM
LOVED the first two LOTR movies when they came out, but haven't seen them since RoTK came out, because that movie was so shit it tainted the rest for me. King Kong was even worse. Haven't seen The Lovely Bones.

As far as that trailer? That looked...shithouse.
Fogs - 9/19/2012, 7:30 AM
HOLY AISJAISJAIJSIAJSIAJSIJASLASDJALSDJKALSD

THAT'S AWESOME TO THE LAST LEVEL POSSIBLE!

Best movie of the year will come last, mark my words.
Maia87 - 9/19/2012, 7:40 AM
@Catwoman1 - Cool story bro.

The movie looks awesome but this trailer is just...terible.
PapaMidnite - 9/19/2012, 7:42 AM
Looks ok. More of the same i guess. Prefer the first trailer.
OwenWilsonsNose - 9/19/2012, 7:42 AM
So much awesome.
hoodedjester - 9/19/2012, 7:46 AM
Full of win!

Tolkein > Whedon, Nolan, Snyder, Ravi, Johns, Fiege, Lee combined.
Super12 - 9/19/2012, 7:58 AM
^Fact.
blvdnoise - 9/19/2012, 7:59 AM
I'LL BE THERE.
JackSass - 9/19/2012, 8:00 AM
LOOKIN GREAT!!!

GodzillaKart - 9/19/2012, 8:00 AM
@Super12: And where does Jackson fit in your "fact"?
GodzillaKart - 9/19/2012, 8:03 AM
Really looking forward to this...although I'm pretty sure that Jackson is more interested in making a prequel to his LOTR movies than in capturing the simple charm of Tolkien's book.

I expect it to be 95% awesome and 5% amazingly poorly done, just like all of Jackson's movies.
GodzillaKart - 9/19/2012, 8:22 AM
@monkeyballs3: Agreed!
