Bilbo is surrounded by dwarves in this new still from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Jan. 30, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Honestly, I was a little surprised when I heard that some people were "underwhelmed" by the trailer for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. Well, I guess it's a "to each his own" situation, but I loved it. There's something magical that happens when Peter Jackson enters this world.

A new still showed up a few days ago during an interview with Evangeline Lilly when she was talking about playing a new elf called Tauriel. We must have missed the still initially, but now we have it here just for you. The photo shows Bilbo (Martin Freeman) surrounded by dwarves. Needs more Gandalf.

Check it out below.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Magical Indeed

I still don't think it has truly sunk in that this film is actually coming out. It's really a miracle that so much of the same cast and crew is making this addition to LOTR! Dippity-doo!

Couldn't be happier

with how this movie's been promoted. Love the picture (looks like Bag End) and I'll be bouncing up and down like a little kid when I get the chance to see this movie in theatres.

Is it just me, or do hobbits seem to make some damn tasty looking food? There was that one scene in Fellowship of the Ring where Sam was grilling sausages over an open fire; I went straight home and grilled bratwursts (while keeping a lookout for crebain from Dunland of course). It's clearly time for a new Food TV show... Cooking with Hobbits.

I bet those dwarfs pong (is that species-ist?).

I wasn't that bothered about Hobbit when it was first announced, the book was always a bit too fairy tale-ish for me, but as details and promotion have emerged I've been suckered in!

I read a quarter of the book before I stopped pretending to give a shit. Afterward, I saw the entirety of the Rankin Bass adaptation, and nothing made a lick of sense. Also, the dwarves served absolutely no purpose at all.
After you click Thumbs Down on my comment, could you at least explain to me the purpose of the dwarves in The Hobbit? If not, that's cool too.
One more thing I'd like to bitch about is Peter Jackson's utterly uninspired cinematography. He treats every scene like a frat

I saw Fellowship and Two Towers in theaters. I give it 2 chances, but I couldn't take anymore. Something's gotta give, but I know it won't.

I almost tried to explain to you, before I realized you're just trolling.
