THE HOBBIT Tickets Now on Sale

Be among the first to see Peter Jackson's all-star prequel to THE LORD OF THE RINGS - opening on Friday 14 December, with previews on 13 December at selected cinemas.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY (Cert TBC)

Director: Peter Jackson. Starring: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis. USA/New Zealand 2012. TBC mins.

In this prequel to THE Lord of the Rings, director Jackson brings back several Tolkien regulars for the fantastical tale of Frodo’s uncle, Bilbo Baggins (Freeman), and his quest to reclaim the lost treasure of the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Once again McKellen’s Gandalf the Grey is the instigator of an epic that involves incalculable danger and wry humour. Benedict Cumberbatch enters Middle Earth for the first time as The Necromancer, while old hands Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Elijah Wood, and especially Andy Serkis’ monstrous Gollum all add to the adventure.

Drenched in the most vivid colour, and with Jackson’s signature breathtaking special effects, THE HOBBIT will delight newcomers as well as die-hard fans of the series.
