Peter Jackson's second videoblog about The Hobbit

53 days of filming down and only another 200 to go, Peter Jackson and second unit director Andy "Golum" Serkis gives us another update of what has happened and what will be shot when the next block of shooting starts in September.

The first one was at the start of filming way back in April. So head over here and see how it all started

The Hobbit follows the journey of 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 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.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is due out on 14th December, 2012, and The Hobbit: There And Back Again is due out a year later on 13th December, 2013, with both films being released in 3D.
