Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive picture scroll of The Hobbit and it is pretty cool. Art presents 10 scenes from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Check out the image on Entertainment Weekly here. You will have to use the magnifier to get a closer look at the detail in each section; move left and right using the scroll bar under the image.

Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, the character he played in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Martin Freeman plays the central role of Bilbo Baggins. Also reprising their roles from The Lord of the Rings trilogy are: Cate Blanchett as Galadriel; Ian Holm as the elder Bilbo; Christopher Lee as Saruman; Hugo Weaving as Elrond; Elijah Wood as Frodo; Orlando Bloom as Legolas; and Andy Serkis as Gollum. The ensemble cast also includes (in alphabetical order) Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Barry Humphries, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Evangeline Lilly, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released beginning December 14, 2012.

The screenplays for both films are by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson. Jackson is also producing the films, together with Fran Walsh and Carolynne Cunningham.

Nice........Now I know no ones gonna argue about how badly the Hobbit will beat TDKR


Just saying, lol.

Not that I don't agree that The Hobbit is going to be a far superior film, but it is comparing Apples and Oranges.

@Darth: Now you are just baiting people, man.

DarthoftheDead 7/11/2012 7:21:40 AM

 @IamChuck - I know, I know, I'm sorry.......I cant resist. The suspense is killing me over this whole Avengers vs TDKR thing, lol.

Seriously though....I wouldnt be at all surprized if the Hobbit makes more Money than both Avengers and TDKR put together

I would.  I have zero interest in seeing this movie.  Absolutely ZERO.

However, unlike a lot of people, I wouldn't mind if this thing took down Titanic at the box office.  No skin off my back either way.

 @millean - Did you like any of the L.O.T.R  movies.....just curious......

millean 7/11/2012 10:00:59 AM

They were OK, but every time I try to start and watch them, I get bored in about 10 minutes and move on.  It is really odd, because this seems like something that should be right down my alley, but I just never have cared too much about it.

DarthoftheDead 7/11/2012 10:18:32 AM

 Dont blame you, millean, I love those movies, but I still think they couldve edited them more.......and dont get me started about Return of the King, lol.

Higgy 7/11/2012 11:09:38 AM

NO!  They should be longer with MORE awesomeness so that they never end and I can live in a fantasy world forever!

I don't know. I think this as a story will be even better than LOTR. I finished the Hobibit for the first time at christmas thought it was one of the best fantasy books I'd ever read. Can't believe I haven't read it before. I'm really looking forward to it.
