The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

From the smallest beginnings come the greatest legends.


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The prequel trilogy to Lord of the Rings appears to have much the same plotline, revealing how Bilbo came to have Golum's ''Precious'' ring in the first place. Bilbo is approached out of the blue by Gandalf, and tasked to help the Dwarves recover their kingdom. So Bilbo, Gandalf and 13 dwarves set out on a long trek, which is only going to finish at the end of the third instalment. They will have lots of adventures and fights along the way, and decapitate quite a few opponents. The masses appear to appreciate this film more than the critics. Note the film is releasing in three variants: 2D, 3D and HFR 3D. This is the 2D version.

James Rocchi quote iconBilbo Baggins' quest for adventure and Warner Bros' quest for cash will take him through three films. But your quest for epic, truly entertaining filmmaking will be more successful if you just stay home.
