World Premiere: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Today

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Poster 1Today at 9:15pm EST/6:15pm PST we will be carrying the live streaming coverage of one of the most anticipated films of 2012, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The Hobbit is the return of Peter Jackson to the film series that made him a household name. In the prequel to Lord of the Rings follows Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. 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.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be released on December 14 in IMAX 3D, 3D and standard theaters. The film will also be the first film to feature a 48 frame per second projection in 3D at select theaters. The Hobbit stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis and directed by Peter Jackson.
