Puff puff pass, Bilbo!

Warner has released the first trailer and poster for Peter Jackson’s first of two Hobbit films, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This one opens December 14, 2012 and the other (The Hobbit: There and Back Again) will open December 13, 2013. The trailer, some screencaps, and the poster can all be found below. There’s so much going on in this, although I almost missed some of it because I was so excited when Gandalf said, “I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure.” I bet he says that to all the boys. (I wish he would say it to me.)

Here’s a synopsis, which should be a spoiler because this book was released seventy-four freakin’ years ago:

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of 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 Oakensheild. 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. [ComingSoon]

Oh man, I can’t wait to plunge right into these Hobbit holes! And also watch a movie.

If that’s pulled, there’s an HD trailer at Apple (maybe) and other embeds at BleedingCool, ComingSoon, and QuietEarth which may still be working.
