This December it's time to go on the return trip you've been anticipating for almost 10 years now. Peter Jackson has returned to the world of Middle Earth to bring us The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first in what will be a trilogy of new films about hobbits, dwarves, elves and all the other characters you remember well from the Lord of the Rings films. This time we're digging back into the time before Frodo went on his epic quest with the ring, meeting Frodo's uncle Bilbo (Martin Freeman) as he grudgingly agrees to join a band of dwarves on their mission to reclaim their ancestral homeland from the vicious dragon Smaug.
We don't quite get to Smaug in the first installment of the story, but what happens to Bilbo and the dwarves is almost as exciting, including an accidental encounter with trolls, a visit to Elrond in Rivendell, and an unforgettable encounter with the creature Smeagol in a dark cave. Odds are The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is one of your most anticipated movies of the year-- it definitely is for us-- and to celebrate its release, we've got an awesome prize pack to give away to one lucky winner. Check out all the goods below.
