‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ (Dec. 14)

Filmmaker Peter Jackson’s last trip to the Shire, 2003’s "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King", won all 11 Academy Awards it was nominated for, including Best Picture. Now he’s returned for another movie trilogy based on "The Lord of the Rings’" prequel novel "The Hobbit". The first in a series that will be released in three consecutive years, is "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", centered on Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), a hobbit who is hired by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to lead a fellowship of 13 dwarves against the evil dragon Smaug. In addition to McKellenn, several of the other actors from the "LOTR" trilogy are reprising their roles, including Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Elijah Wood, and Orlando Bloom. Will lightning strike again?
