This past weekend, I journeyed into Middle Earth for no less than 13 hours for Cinemark's Lord of the Rings Extended Cut marathon in theaters. If you haven't yet revisited the longer versions of Peter Jackson's trilogy, see if you can before The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey hits theaters this Friday. There are some great ties to The Hobbit including a mention of Thorin and plenty of references to the adventures of Bilbo Baggins. And so, as we're in the home stretch leading up to the release this weekend, we have one final TV spot for the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy as we anticipate midnight showings on Thursday.
The final TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from New Line Cinema:
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.
