Gollum featured in new Hobbit image

July 27th, 2012 by bash Comments

E! have posted two new images from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Andy Serkis as Gollum both behind-the-scenes in his motion-capture gear and in his finalized, animated form.

The film follows the journey of title character 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 Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild, through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be followed up by The Hobbit: There and Back Again on December 13, 2013. Recent reports suggest that a third may even follow that, likely targeting a 2014 release.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
