As if there is a single person alive on the planet right now that hasn’t already made up their minds that they will be queuing in the ticket line to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December the 15th, Peter Jackson’s promo machine has churned out 5 new stills for us to gawk and drool over.
I have no doubt that this will be one of the highest grossing opening films that the cinema world will have experienced to date, so I think it will be best if I secure my ticket early as there is no way that I will be missing this one and I wholly expect to see the rest of the crew from The Movies as well, all fully garbed in their questing robes. For those of you who are grossly uninformed regarding the film’s plot, here is an abridged synopsis for you:
The film follows the titular hobbit, 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.
For those of you wanting to read a bit more, there is a slightly more spoileresque version for you over here.
As for the stills, take a look for yourself!
