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 ...

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Film Trailer Review
It has long been on both Tolkien and film fans alike, finally it is here... well the official The Hobbit trailer that is. The Lord of the Rings is probably one of the best epic fantasy film adaptation fantasy of all time, and who better else handle tits prequel that Peter Jackson (director of all LOTR Movie Trilogy) himself.

I am not that much of a fanatic but a mere enthusiast of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but just the mere sight of Middle-Earth's Bree at the start of the trailer brought shiver down my spine. As someone who hasn't read the books, there are seemingly new faces and places shown here and that is just fine. It is a prequel for Pete's sake. But as soon as you see Gandalf, orcs, trolls, elves, dwarves and a silhouette of a very familiar corrupted hobbit you'll feel at ease that they made this prequel right. Said to be just the first out of a two part prequel, this trailer is just perfect for fans of the Lord of the Rings book and film trilogy, and even to the newer generation who wanted to start their Tolkien film experience right from the very beginning.
