First Full Clip And A Massive Payload Of New Stills From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The wait for the first instalment of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is almost over, with only a couple of weeks until release in most countries. It’s never too soon to start getting excited, so here’s the first full clip from the film, which features the introduction of Bilbo’s (and eventually Frodo’s) sword, Sting.

Fans of the book will recognise the particular significance of Gandalf’s final line here. Those who have never read it will probably pick up on the “setting up for a pay-off” vibe as well.
