Reported by Outsiders - 2012.10.15
Here's a 60-second international TV Spot for Peter Jackson's first chapter of his latest Hobbit Trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." The Hong Kong spot seems to be a one-minute breakdown version of the latest full trailer. No doubt that this is just the first of many promotional spots we can look forward to in the upcoming months ahead.
Slated to hit theaters on December 14th, "The Hobbit" stars Martin Freeman as a young Bilbo Baggins going on his first adventure where he ultimately finds the "precious" ring, and battles Smaug, one of the last great dragons of Middle-earth.
"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.
