Second Trailer for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’

 

The second trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has arrived! This will be the first in what will be a trilogy of Hobbit films spanning the next three years. An Unexpected Journey will be in theatres on December 14th of this year, followed by The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug on Dec. 13, 2013 and The Hobbit: There And Back Again on July 18, 2014.

The new trailer looks as majestic as one would expect – being that we have the same filmmakers that brought us the incredible Lord of the Rings trilogy – and delivers a much lighter tone than the first trailer we saw. I’m pretty sure I’m still the only one out there predicting it for a Best Picture nom, but I’d bet there will be many predicting The Hobbit for the tech/craft awards like Visual Effects and Sound.

What are your thoughts on the trailer? Are you excited to return to Middle Earth? What do you think of The Hobbit’s Oscar hopes?
