With just under 3 months left until we get to troll some little people, the marketing campaign for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has seriously heated up. And by heated up, I mean that they are going to try and show you pretty much every picture and minute of film they can.

Luckily for us though, it’s all looking pretty damn epic. Like this new trailer, which may not be as emotionally charged as the last one, but it certainly makes up that for with incredible looking action. Oh and multiple endings!

If you head on over to the movie’s official site, you’ll be presented with a choice of five different endings for the latest trailer, which you can watch and then forward to whomever you want. Here’s my personal favourite:


“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows 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 Oakenshield. 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.
