Middle Earth Beckons Once More in the Teaser Trailer for The Hobbit Part 1

I personally think calling the first “Hobbit” movie “An Unexpected Journey” is a bit silly, but then again, it’s probably not anymore silly than calling the second part “There and Back Again”. What is this, some drama about two aging hippies? Then again, I’m not Peter Jackson, who is the undisputed God of Middle Earth, and therefore he knows way more than I what to call his movies. That said, here’s the first teaser trailer for Jackson’s “The Hobbit Part 1: An Unexpected Journey”, starring a bunch of hobbits (duh, it’s right there in the title) and ax-wielding dwarfs. Plus, all manner of monsters and creatures and such. Take a gander, won’t you?

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the 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 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 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.

The huge cast include Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Peter Hambleton, John Callen, Jed Brophy, Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Jeffrey Thomas, and Mike Mizrahi.

Go on the journey before coming back December 14, 2012.

    That’s quite a large cast of travellers there.

      LIAR! You have not! Lol. This will be a completely different film than the LOTR trilogy, as it doesn’t have the world’s impending doom looming on the horizon.

    An unexpected journey is a perfect title cause that’s exactly what it is for Bilbo, and “There and Back Again” is the title of Bilbo’s story after he’s written it (which is the story of the Hobbit) so that also makes sense. I loved the first trilogy, and these look to be just as good. The scene with the dwarfs singing gave me chills, and the last scene of the trailer just makes me want to go rewatch the trilogy. This is going to be epic!!!!!

        Agree, but I am too, and proud to be!

        I loved the trailer! Indeed the dwarf singing gave me the chills, and picture quality is near perfect. I was watching mysleg buying the extended edition already.

        Wouldn’t be writing for you if I wasn’t LOL.

          I actually have the whole Hobbit books on my shelf but everytime I try to read it, I look at the size of it, and get scared.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            LMAO!! I grew up reading Stephen King. When you can read “It” and “The Stand” in HS and not get intimidated by the sheer size of the book, nothing is really daunting after that. I want to get this Hardcover faux leather bound version of The Hobbit and LoTR.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

            Ironically, I read both The Stand and It while in HS, too. :) I guess when you’re older reading a tome that huge takes way too much commitment (and time).

          • Lexavi80

            The whole Hobbit books? But is just one.

            Besides, The Hobbit is the smallest book if you compare it with any LOTR tome. Also The Hobbit is such of light reading. Almost children’s book. Awesome, nonehteless.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

            Ah, I mean, I have the whole shebang on my shelf. They collected the entire LOTR stuff into one big ass book.

    Why do we give a shit about this right now it doesn’t come out for another year…. It’s just gonna make us even more impatient.

    Far over the misty mountains cold
    To dungeons deep and & caverns old
    The pines were roaring on the height,
    The winds were moaning in the night,
    The fire was red, it flaming spread;
    The trees like torches blazed with light
