We've seen a decent amount of images from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey recently, mostly showing off the dwarves in the story. Now we have our first look at Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) talking with Elrond (Hugo Weaving) from the set of the film. It's great to actually see these two characters interacting together! Damn, I'm so excited for this movie. I hate how excited I am for it, because it just makes it that much harder to wait until we actually are able see it, which will be until... forever. Oh well, I'm only human. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14, 2012 in 3D.
Here's the previously released Sunopsis for the film:
The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), 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 (Ian McKellen), Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). 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 (Andy Serkis).
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.
