Hobbit Trailer Reaction 2

This morning, much to the delight of the fan base, the first full length trailer for the first film in Peter Jackson's upcoming cinematic trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel "The Hobbit" arrived.

We're pretty excited here in the AMC Movie News offices, as you can imagine.

Take a look at AMC Movie News Managing Editor John Campea, AMC Movie News Associate Editor Roth Cornet, and Cocktails with Stan host Jenna Busch give their reactions in the video below.


"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens in AMC theatres in 3D, IMAX, 2D and High Frame Rate 3D (at select locations) on December 14th, 2012

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens a year later on December 13th, 2013.

"The Hobbit: There and Back Again" opens on July 18th, 2014.
