There’s a new trailer out today for one of the year’s most highly anticipated films, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Directed by Peter Jackson, the film stars Martin Freeman reprising his role as Bilbo Baggins and Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug the dragon.
The new trailer features two and a half minutes of footage with enough dramatic speeches and classic Lord of the Rings character cameos to break even the most stoic nerd. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14 and will be followed by The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and possibly a third installment. Check out the new trailer below. [iW]
