It was announced this weekend by Peter Jackson that fans would get to see a new trailer for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY this Wednesday, and special content would start to be released as well. Looks like “special content” is already starting to roll in as today we’re getting a new batch of photos from the film. These images give us another glance at Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Andy Serkis as Gollum and then some more shots of Thorin Oakenshield and others that will partake in the journey through Middle Earth.
