Mark your calendars everyone! December 14, 2011 will be the day that Peter Jackson rules the world for a fourth time. The first of two movies based on The Hobbit (a prequel of sorts to Lord of the Rings) will hit theatres at the end of next year, giving us something truly awesome to look forward to as the world apparently ends (the so called 2012 apocalypse and all).
Does Peter Jackson still have it or what? His Tolkien movies are all utterly incredible, and An Unexpected Journey looks to be no different. This guy would make Tolkien proud, wouldn’t he?
I love how the characters we’re familiar with don’t even look any different than they did in the previous films. Gandalf looks just as old and scraggly as we know him (rather than just “older”) and the young Bilbo is superb. This is going to be an epic movie for sure. December 2012 cannot come soon enough!
