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.
It's great to see Andy Serkis returning to reprise his role as the obsessive creature Gollum.
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.
And if these pics excite you, just wait: director Peter Jackson says the film might be stretched into its own trilogy! He says:
"There's so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven't been able to squeeze into these movies."
Ooh! We likessss good stuff!
