Can't wait until Dec. 14 to see "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"? Thanks to an intrepid fan with a good film editing program and, presumably, a lot of time, you can watch nearly eight minutes of the film today!

YouTube user joatmonjb spliced together footage from 12 assorted trailers, announcements and TV spots to make a mega-trailer for the film, following the book's chronology.

Ahead, catch glimpses of the beginning of Bilbo Baggins' reluctant (unexpected) journey, Gandalf's powers of persuasion, Gollum's split personality, Middle Earth's merriest band of travelers and more.
