It's one of the highly anticipated films of 2012, and we finally have a first look at The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings prequel is directed by LOR director Peter Jackson (after Hell Boy director Guillermo Del Toro pulled out of the project), and reveals how Bilbo Baggins came across the coveted ring. 

Though everyone is surely excited to see the Lord of the Rings cast together again, this movie boasts a lot of new faces. Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, and Cate Blanchett return as Legolas, Frodo, and Galadriel, but their parts are very small. Also expect to see the infamous villain Gollum (Andy Serkis) making an appearance. 

Baggins is played by Martin Freeman (The Office) while other characters include: Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), Oakenshield's dwarf warriors, and, of course, Gandalf the Grey (Sir Ian McKellan).

    Men In Black??? Really??? Well, only a certain part of the population gets these stories anyway. For the rest of the unwashed masses, then Men In Black is perfect for them.

    Men in Black 3 trailer makes me more excited than this trailer.

    The trailer brings you right back to Middle Earth, and I'm so glad Peter Jackson's back at the helm (although I love Guillermo del Toro, the style continuity would most likely have been lost had he directed.) The dwarves look great, and Martin Freeman seems a believable choice for the young Bilbo, even down to speech and mannerisms. Just wish opening weekend wasn't a year away -- we need a "Count Down" clock!
