Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Cate Blanchett star in a slightly new The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trailer
So were you excited or disappointed that Peter Jackson officially decided to break ‘The Hobbit’ into three separate films? I’ve heard compelling arguments on both sides, but I’m probably leaning towards the disappointed camp. I’m only moderately excited to revisit Middle Earth and now having to go through three more films doesn’t sound like a good thing to me. And I know Peter Jackson is saying they have tons of extra notes and appendixes from the late J.R.R. Tolkien, but it still seems like a stretch to spread ‘The Hobbit’ over three films. And knowing Peter Jackson, each film will be over three hours long. But at the end of the day, I still get excited watching the trailer, so I guess I should have faith in Mr. Jackson. As for the trailer below, this is the one that debuted in front of BRAVE and is only slightly different from the trailer we’ve seen before. From what I can tell, there’s only a few brief scenes that separate this trailer from the previous one, but those with a keen eye might be able to spot more.
The Hobbit films star Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Fry, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Brett McKenzie, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Ian Holm,Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans and Cate Blanchett. THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and part 2, THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN, open on December 14th, 2012 and December 13th, 2013 respectively.
