The first TV spot has gone online for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It’s a quick thirty-second bit that shows some of the scenes and scenery that have previously been released, but we get two bits of dialogue: one with Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and one with Thorin (Richard Armitage) who both happen to be picking on poor Bilbo (Martin Freeman).
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey also stars Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis. It opens in 3D on December 14th. Hit the jump to watch the first TV spot.

Here’s the synopsis for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey:
“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.
