Earlier this year we saw the first photos from the New Zealand set of the upcoming prequel film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and today we get to see the film’s first poster AND video trailer. All year long, there has been building hype on the new Peter Jackson masterpiece and today we get a big pay off. Altho The Hobbit won’t hit theaters until December … 2012, we can at least start the year-long countdown to the big release. Click below to check out the first poster and trailer for The Hobbit.
This poster is awesome … and it looks very similar to the photo of Peter Jackson on set that we saw back in March. The trailer, tho, is the big news of the day. As you can see below, Jackson will be busting out all of the movie-making magic that the utilized in the Lord of the Rings trilogy … he will also be busting out an awesome elf song:
This is the film that Lord of the Rings stans have been DYING for since the film trilogy ended its theatrical run years ago. I have a sneaking suspicion that The Hobbit will do very well at the box office. Any Rings fans out there? What do y’all think of this trailer?
