Martin Freeman gets a whole 30 seconds basically to himself in the new The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey TV Spot. Check it out:
Freeman plays Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit hired by Gandalf the Grey, played by Ian McKellen, to reclaim the Lonely Mountain, along with 13 dwarves, from the evil dragon Smaug. Richard Armitage, Ian Holm, Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness), Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving (Cloud Atlas), Luke Evans, Cate Blanchett, and Elijah Wood also star.
Peter Jackson directs the series, which acts as a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien, the story will be split into three films, An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug, and There and Back Again.
An Unexpected Journey will premiere December 14. Take a look at some The Hobbit stills for another look.
