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.

    Peter! Never say Never,

    There is a French idiom that says: Jamais deux sans trois.

    so we expect to see you behind the camera for the Silmarillion once your’re done with the Hobbit.

    i am eager to watch it with my kids…

    Can’t wait to see this awesomeness in theatres. Critics are fools – this film will the the best damn film of the the year!

    I also can’t wait to see the film. Jackson did such a great job with the Rings trilogy. I don’t see how The Silmarillion could be brought to the screen in its entirety. I would like to see the Beren and Luthien story on the big screen, however.

    This seems to happen pretty often on Collider.

        That is NOT a working link. That video is the featurette, while this one was supposed to be 100% footage from the actual film, with no commentary.
