First clip from ‘The Hobbit’
Are you ready to Bilbo, America? ARE YOU? Peter Jackson’s return to Middle-Earth is a pretty cool thing, even if the story’s going to be split into three movies for some Goddamn reason. We’ve seen some impressive trailers and stills from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but here’s the first full clip from the movie, where Gandalf (Ian McKellen) presents Bilbo (Martin Freeman) with Sting, the sword that will become his faithful companion on his quest. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey also stars Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch and hits theaters on December 14th.
