Another Fun Extended TV Spot for 'The Hobbit' with Lots of Dwarves
"I'm going on an adventure!" Another new extended (UK) TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey recently debuted. But this is mostly a reminder that tickets are now on sale (check your local listings, as most theaters have started selling them for opening day). Beyond that, since we're already in the midst of ticketing, many fans are wondering about 48FPS/HFR 3D showings. Which theaters? Where? The debate rages on, but word is that Warner Bros/New Line will be running the HFR version in only 450 of its approximate 4,000 theaters on December 14th (more on LA Times). Beyond that, there's a complete theater listing on a new HFR blog site for those interested. A little over a month to go! Excited yet?

Update! There's a few additional official TV spots that also debuted - you can see two of them here:
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 14th.
