First Trailer for Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' Is Here!
It's still hard to believe that movies based on JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit are actually happening. Years of legal wrangling and a failed start with director Guillermo del Toro made it seem like we'd have to live with Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy as the only cinematic interpretation of Tolkien's work--which, admittedly, is not a bad thing to live with.
Then Jackson stepped back up to the plate, made the brilliant decision to cast Martin Freeman as Bilbo, and said he'd make two films out of The Hobbit (my understanding is the second serves as a bridge into The Lord of the Rings films).
Even then I thought: This is too good to be true.
And then this. The first trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
I don't even know what to say. What is there to say? This trailer is fire and glory and magic. I will now go watch it a million times in a row.
