The Hobbit journey begins…

The first moving images from Peter Jackson’s long awaited, hugely anticipated take on JRR Tolkein’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ prequel ‘The Hobbit’ premiered online today. This is the trailer for the first in a two-part adaptation of the book – entitled ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ – so anyone looking for a sight of the great dragon Smaug is set for disappointment. The trailer itself is a mixed bag – for every thrillingly familiar shot of epic Middle Earth landscapes or Ian McKellen looking pensive, there’s a pratfalling dwarf or Martin Freeman looking like, well, Martin Freeman – but we’ll have to wait until December 2012 before passing judgment. For next twelve months, expect the internet to be wall-to-wall Hobbit, clogging up the nerdsphere with trailers, rumours, on-set reports and breathless anticipation. The journey starts here…
