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.
