Another Precious Trailer

The return of Gollum, Bilbo and Gandalf gets a trailer today.  Gollum is kept in the shadows, Gandalf gets bad-ass and Martin Freeman gets to show us his take on Bilbo.

There are lots of nods to The Lord of the Rings trilogy thrown in and brief introductions to the dwarves but no Smaug the dragon yet.  Middle Earth still looks fantastic (particularly the Shire) and the Dwarves singing gives the trailer a great, moody, atmosphere. 

It all ends with the introduction of Gollum and the warning from Gandalf that this 'Unexpected Journey' will change Bilbo forever.  The ring shines in the foreground and many of the shots here are a reminder of why Jackson is such an exciting and entertaining director.

So it's just a year we've got to wait for this one then.  With this, The Dark Knight Rises trailer and the Prometheus trailer tomorrow, 2012 is shaping up extremely well from the look of the blockbusters.
