More Hobbit footage already? We'll take it!
No doubt fans have already repeatedly devoured the new footage revealed in the second trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but there's already more that has arrived online. The Warner Bros.' official website for The Hobbit offers users a chance to create their own ending to the latest trailer, with five different moments to choose from for the trailer's end. One of those options was used by the studio already, the one where the giant troll lands on top of the dwarves. The other endings include an exchange between Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and Gollum (Andy Serkis); Gandalf (Ian McKellen) revealing to Bilbo that bet he had with the dwarves; Bilbo learning an unsatisfying truth about his sword; and Bilbo examining his contract to join the company of dwarves to attempt to "burgle" the treasure that's being protected by the dragon Smaug. Like the troll fall, the endings all reveal the humorous side of the movie, and, luckily, Bleeding Cool has compiled them all into one video so you don't have to watch the trailer four different times (not that you wouldn't want to).
An Unexpected Journey is the first of an upcoming J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit directed by Peter Jackson, who adapted the script with Guillermo del Toro, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens.
The cast includes returning actors like Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins and Sir Christopher Lee as Saruman, as well as new cast members like Lee Pace as the Elven King Thranduil, Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, Barry Humphries as the Goblin King, Stephen Fry as the Master of Lake Town, Mikael Persbrandt as the shape-shifter Beorn,and Billy Connolly as Dain Ironfoot. Then, of course, there are the dwarves — Bombur (Stephen Hunter), Balin (Ken Stott), Dwalin (Graham McTavish), Bofur (James Nesbitt), Bifur (William Kircher), Nori (Jed Brophy), Ori (Adam Brown), Dori (Mark Hadlow), Óin (John Callen), Glóin (Peter Hambleton), Kili (Aidan Turner), Fili (Dean O'Gorman) and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage).
An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14, while The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will follow on December 13, 2013. There and Back Again closes out the trilogy on July 18, 2014.
