New In Theaters - December 14, 2012

Starring: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, 
Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, 
Evangeline Lilly & Andy Serkis
Directed by Peter Jackson for distribution by New Line (Warner Brothers)

The Plot: Bilbo Baggins is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which is currently under the control of the dragon Smaug.

The Final Word: It’s fairly safe to say Oscar winning director Peter Jackson was the only man who could have possibly brought “The Hobbit” to the big screen. The talented filmmaker behind “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy originally was content to sit this experience out and serve only as a consultant to one-time director Guillermo del Toro, however when del Toro dropped out of the project, it soon it became clear audiences wanted Jackson back in the fold.
