The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey New Images

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is now just a handful of weeks away from being released and the excitement is beginning to mount around the film.

This week saw a new trailer released and also a new set of images to enjoy – and we have those pics for you to take a look at:

Now I don’t know about you but Richard Armitage just looks fantastic as Thorin Oakenshield and this looks set to be the role that will be the big movie breakthrough for him.

Ian McKellan is back as Gandalf while Hugo Weaving and Cate Blanchett will also be reprising the roles of Elrond and Galadriel.

But it is Martin Freeman that I am most excited about seeing in this movie as he takes over the role of Bilbo Baggins. He is joined on the cast list by Evangeline Lily, Andy Serkis, Lee Pace, Billy Connolly and Luke Evans.
