Before Frodo and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, there was another epic tale from Middle Earth.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens tonight, Dec. 13. If you haven't made plans already, make them now!
According to IMDB.com, the movie follows the story of "a curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, (who) journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug."
The fantasy film based in a land of elves, wizards and hobbits starts with midnight showings the night of Thursday, Dec. 13, with its "official" opening on Dec. 14.
The film debuts at Regal Snellville Oaks in 3D at 12:01 a.m., but sadly tickets are already sold out.
Regular showtimes at Regal start Friday, Dec. 14 at 11:30 a.m., 12:30, 1:00, 2:50, 3:30, 4:30, 5:00, 6:20, 7:30, 8:20, 9:30, 11:00 and 11:20 p.m.
