Director Peter Jackson's mammoth adaptation of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy takes us back sixty years before the Lord of the Rings trilogy to The Hobbit. Martin Freeman gamely plays Bilbo Baggins, a stay-at-home sort who is tempted by wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) to join a group of dwarves heading off to reclaim the lost kingdom of Erebor. Joining LOTR stalwarts such as Cate Blanchett as Galadriel and Christopher Lee as Saruman is Richard Armitage as the warrior Thorin Oakenshield. The new quest sees them clashing arms with Orcs, a shady new villain in The Necromancer and that precious old nemesis Gollum.
