Bits of New Footage and No Smoking in Alternate 'The Hobbit' Trailer

August 6, 2012

The Hobbit

It's been nearly eight months since the first trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hit the big screen with The Adventures of Tintin. While Comic-Con audiences were treated to 12 whole minutes of footage (though not in 3D or 48fps), the rest of the fans have been clamoring for any new footage. That touching video blog probably helped with the few months left until the December release, and now an alternate version of the first teaser has been available. It premiered with Brave, needed to be G-rated, and thus removed any Gandalf smoking scenes and added just a few new moments with Bilbo and the wizard.

Here's the alternate teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, first found via

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.
