Here we go.  A couple of weeks (months?  I’ve lost track) we talked about the film production of The Hobbit, and whether or not Peter Jackson will work wonders like he did with the original Lord of the Rings series.  Well.  It may still be  year away until the first instalment (there are two) is released, but luckily for us, Jackson and Co. decided to send us a Christmas present in the form of THE FIRST OFFICIAL TRAILER!

Be prepared for some awesomeness, with Ian McKellan and his hero-esque ways as Gandalf and Andy Serkis as the oh-so-creepy Gollum in the trailer below.  And let me know what you think!

Also.  Does anyone else think that the actor playing Bilbo Baggins looks like that guy from Lonely Island.  You know, the one that isn’t Andy Samberg?
