Being Tolkien Week Peter Jackson has surprised everyone with a second trailer to the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and WOW it looks epic.
This film just looks massive in every aspect and considering this is the first of three films I’m really quite blown away just thinking about what the next two will have in store. Even though I am still quite intrigued how they will fit this story across three films? I spose we will soon see.
We have to wait until boxing day to see the film but our American Friends get to see it on the 14th of December and just so you know the film is releasing in 2D, 3D, 25 frames per second and 48 frames per second but unfortunately by the looks of it here in Perth we may not get to see it the way Peter Jackson intends it, mainly because as I’m aware no cinema in Perth can project the 48fps, kind of makes me sad but the main thing is we get to see it.
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.
Roll on Boxing Day.
