Before the Lord of the Rings, J.R. Tolkien wrote another book, The Hobbit. After the success of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy in the early 2000’s, it was inevitable that this novel would get adopted too. Peter Jackson is back behind the camera for part one of the new trilogy, which lays the ground work for the quest of 12 dwarves, a wizard and a hobbit. This film stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage along with cameos from LOTR stars such as Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis.
