Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield.

Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.”

About TV spot 2:

Bilbo (Martin Freeman) gets into a bit of hot water in this new TV spot for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It gives us a good look at the trolls that our pint-sized hero runs afoul of, though we’re sure Bilbo’s allies Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Thorin (Richard Armitage) are near at hand. Who knew trolls were so articulate?…the spot features…an advance ticket on-sale date and Howard Shore’s gorgeous score. What many, us included, neglected to notice the first time around was that these commercials are a true milestone in Hollywood history. They are the first pieces of advertising noting that a film would screen in RealD 3D, IMAX 3D and, drumroll please, HFR 3D. “HFR” stands for “high frame rate.

As has been well-documented in the past, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be the first film ever released in 48 frames per second. Most theaters will screen the film in the traditional 24 frames per second format, but select audiences will have the choice to go for the high frame rate.
