The Brits already got Marvel's The Avengers a full two weeks before the rest of the world, and now the official UK Facebook page of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has revealed that they'll also be able to see that film a little sooner than expected. Hit the jump for details!
There aren't too many big movies left to hit the big screen this year, but two of the most anticipated will be released in the UK before North America. We already know that Skyfall is set to be released a full two weeks ahead of the US, but now the official Facebook page of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has revealed, "The adventure begins a day early! We are very excited to announce that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will now be released on December 13th!" So, it's only 24 hours sooner, but that makes all the difference for those already counting down the days until its release! Sound off with your thoughts below.
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 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 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.
