150 Images From Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

We have a really special treat for Hobbit fans today. Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we have 150 images from the first part of Peter Jackson’s upcoming adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

A few of them have been seen before, but the vast majority of them are brand new, featuring multiple behind the scenes glimpses of the production. These include looks at makeup, prosthetics, sets, conceptual artwork, weapons, actors just hanging around on the set, and more.

Overall they’re a fantastic look at just how much work went into every little detail of this epic film, all the while building more anticipation for Jackson’s return to the realm of Middle Earth. We’re only about a month away before we finally get our chance to see whether or not it lives up to the hype, but you can bet that we’ll be getting early reviews within the next couple of weeks.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which stars Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, and Andy Serkis, hits theaters on December 14th.

Check out the images in the extensive gallery below and let us know what you think in the comments.
