The first full-length, official trailer for Peter Jackson‘s upcoming Hobbit adaptation, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be attached to screenings of The Adventures of Tintin, which hits theaters on December 21.
The news comes straight from the Warner Brothers Twitter feed, saying:
Get your 1st look at the return to Middle-earth on 12/21 when the trailer for #TheHobbit: An Unexpected Journey plays before @Tintin_Movie!
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, is scheduled to release on December 14, 2012, and with it being such a highly anticipated film, it makes sense that its trailer would air so early.
Additionally – tons of major films (Dark Knight Rises, etc.) tend to premiere their trailers during the winter season, when families make their way to the movies after stuffing themselves with holiday ham.
Personally, The Hobbit may be my most anticipated film of next year. If it’s even remotely as good as any of the Lord of the Rings films, I’ll be endlessly pleased.
