For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, Warner Bros. made TV spot #12 available on their facebook page today. This spot is mostly a re-shuffling of previously seen footage, but we do catch a glimpse of wargs being ridden and Gandalf striking the ground with his glowing staff. The length of this TV spot is similar to most of the others, weighing in at 34 seconds. This is just the thing to get you through to the movie openings which start in less than 48 hours! Have a look.Posted in Andy Serkis, Events, Hobbit Movie, Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Television, The Hobbit, Trailer

Reports continue to come in via our discussion board members of new TV spots showing tonight. These are in addition to the new spot featuring glimpses of Smaug that we reported on here. One new commercial was spotted on Fox 2 during Glee and contains a few new seconds of footage between Galadriel and Gandalf. The other spot contains more Riddles in the Dark footage between Bilbo and Gollum and was seen on ABC during Last Resort. Warner Bros. continues to tease us by inserting bits of new footage between scenes we’ve already seen – and we love it! All we can say is: keep the TV ads coming.Posted in Events, Hobbit Movie, Rumors Spy News, Television, The Hobbit

Warner Bros. officially released The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey TV spot #8 today. For those who have seen all of the other TV spots and/or the movie trailers, the 32 second spot doesn’t present anything new, but who’s going to pass up watching 32 more seconds of Hobbit-goodness? Speaking of new footage, however, discussion board members who watched the Charlie Brown Christmas special on ABC in the states last night are reporting that they got a glimpse of (Highlight for spoiler) Smaug’s tail hurling what looked to be a fireball towards what looked to be Dale in a TV spot run during that show. So, keep your eyes peeled, and in the mean time, enjoy the latest TV spot!Posted in Events, Hobbit Movie, Hobbit Movie Rumors, Television, The Hobbit
