Watch: New Hobbit Trailer Looks Fantastic

A new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey just hit the web.

I think it looks great. Anyone who has read the books knows The Hobbit covers much of the same territory (pun intended) as The Lord of the Rings, but with a lighter tone more suitable for children.

The trailer seems to have captured that tone nicely.

Director Peter Jackson is splitting the epic book into three movies. This is the first and opens December 14.
