I’m going to go ahead and assume there are people in Atlanta who are excited to return to Middle-earth.  It’s been a long road to get The Hobbit to the big screen, but now the adventure has truly begun with the upcoming release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyThe Lord of the Rings trilogy is truly epic filmmaking, and it looks like writer-director Peter Jackson has lost none of his touch when it comes to painting on a gigantic canvas.  Also, there’s a dwarf with an axe-blade embedded in his skull, so that’s good too.

I’m pleased to announce that that we will be giving away 10 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in 3D on December 14th.

And here’s the official synopsis:

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
