At last, at last all you fellow Tolkien LOTR fans out there! We can now rejoice as the release dates of the highly anticipated Hobbit films have been determined along with their official titles.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will drop on December 14, 2012 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit theaters December 13, 2013. Birthday presents just for moi. LOL
Hope we all survive the infamous 2012 Apocalypse and get a chance to see them.
The Peter Jackson helmed duo tells the story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman. This time around we join Bilbo as he attempts to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from Smaug, a terrible dragon. Ian Holm will reprise his role as the elder Bilbo, while we can look forward to seeing our other favorites from LOTR. Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Ian McKellan as Gandalf the Grey, Elijah Wood as Frodo, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Hugo Weaving as Elrond, Christopher Lee as Saruman and Andy Serkis as Golum.
I so cannot wait for these. I am a Tolkien addict and my love for these films knows no bounds. They rank as probably my favorite films of all time. What about you all out there. Are you as excited as I am, meh or Oh-my-God-you-geeks-need-to-stop-making these-craptacular-fantasy-flicks? Talk to me.
