The Hobbit Trolls TV Spot

"Can we cook him?" Trolls! They're alive! And hungry. A second 30-second TV spot has recently debuted for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, following up the first TV spot as we count down the last 50 days until this epic journey back into Middle-Earth arrives. Similar to that first spot, this features a lot of action, as well as glimpses at Bilbo played by Martin Freeman, Gandalf played by Ian McKellen, Thorin played by Richard Armitage, and Gollum played by Andy Serkis. It's short and sweet, so there's no risk spoiling footage, best to dive right in and see the trolls (also seen at Comic-Con) yourself. Have fun!

Watch the second TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, via YouTube:

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.

a while back - an article was posted on this site that had to do with some guy saying he thougt avengers wasn't very good....and that was it.....just someone not liking avengers -and it drew (last i checked) over 140) comments. and here, we have a little more info on an upcoming big release and it has 2 comments. same with cloud atlas - an interesting, innovative film and articles on it are not generating very many comments. it really makes me wonder why all of these people who take such a huge interest in superheros have NO interest (seemingly) in other movies. for those of you disagreeing - i'd sure like a response as to why you disagree.....the numbers on this site alone overwhelmingly support what i'm saying. i'm not offended by disagrees in the least - but i'm curious as to what you'd disagree about?

Superhero folk are mental Beevis, it's why mainstream comics are terrible. I'm more than excited for The Hobbit, can't wait!

absolutely............mainstream comics 30+ years ago were great - i lost interest because the quality did drop. i can't remember the exact moment, but (at some point) there seemed to be a shift to churning out crap storylines as long as the artwork looked good......story ceased to matter.

Sometimes TV spots like this just don't bring in too many people... I don't watch MOST of the TV spots out there, unless it's for something like The Hobbit. Then in the last 4 weeks before it's out, I'll stop watching ANY footage, and don't have much to say beyond "this looks wonderful!" and "I can't wait to see it!" 🙂 But yea, superheroes are the new thing now, but there are obviously lots of other great movies out there, too. (Like Cloud Atlas!)

man, i really liked CA. i had minor issues - 6 storylines and all jumping around made it tough to really invest much emotion in any of them was the biggest. well, and the makeup on tom hanks characters didn't seem really good. but, it was a huge undertaking and was a very enjoyable watch.

i understand tv spots don't bring in the people - but that article about 1 GUY being critical of the avengers movie brought in well over a 140 comments! it had no trailer and no new info about any upcoming film....and it got more comments than probably the last 10 trailers put up on this site combined - you don't see that as a sad commentary as to who is coming to the site and and what limited scope of interest they have? oh - i really liked the shining references to the southpark episode.
