You couldn't call curiosity about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey unexpected.
As a prequel to the Oscar-winning Lord Of The Rings trilogy, the upcoming film has some big shoes to fill. Many consider those films preciousssss.
Here's a look at Gollum in the movie and a behind-the-scenes peek at the multi-talented Andy in his motion capture suit with Martin Freeman as titular hero Bilbo Baggins.

"There's so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven't been able to squeeze into these movies."
