Here’s the long-awaited first look trailer for the Peter Jackson film adaptation of the J. R. R. Tolkein prequel book to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy; The Hobbit.
The storyline of the book has been split into two sections for two movies – the first one being “An Unexpected Journey“, and the second “There And Back Again“; which is set to be released in 2013. Suffice to say it looks pretty epic, featuring a strong cast made up of certain characters returning from the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, such as Gandalf (played by Ian McKellen), Legolas (played by Orlando Bloom), Frodo (played by Elijah Wood) and the return of Gollum (played by Andy Serkis) among others; as well as a whole horde of new faces, including (a younger) Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman from Shaun of The Dead, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, and Love Actually). The visuals of the movie seem to follow in the steps of L.O.T.R., although they do appear to be slightly richer and more lush. Guess we’ll have to wait to see the full thing.
