It’s hard to believe that it’s almost 10 years ago since Return of the King last graced our cinema screens.

A lot has changed since then.

Vampires have gone all emotionally soft and sparkly, Harry Potter has come to fitting end and Avatar has brought 3D cinema to mainstream audiences.

So it’s rather fitting that Peter Jackson and his fellowship have returned to Middle Earth (in 3D this time) and will be bringing us The Hobbit next year, filling a Tolkien shaped gap in our cinematic timetable that has long been absent.

Looking set to reunite familiar faces and introduce new ones, the trailer for The Hobbit looks rather promising and can be seen below.

I don’t really need to explain why we cannot wait for this one do I.
