New ‘Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Trailer: Action-Packed, Surprisingly Funny

It took nine months, but the new trailer for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is now here, and it does not disappoint. The preview focuses more heavily on story than the previous look at the film and clearly outlines what we’ll be seeing in the first installment of the trilogy.

For the Tolkien geeks out there, the trailer features a surprising cameo from Radagast, a wizard who appears as only a passing reference in “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit,” but one that will play a major role in the parallel storyline following him, Gandalf, Saruman, and Galadriel, as they hunt for the Necromancer.
