With the upcoming Dec. 14 opening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey — the first installment in director Peter Jackson’s highly anticipated three-part return to Middle-earth — looming on the horizon, Warner Bros. is stoking the buzz furnace with a new TV spot that brings back some familiar faces from the Lord of the Rings films (Gandalf! Gollum! Galadriel!), showcases some new ones (Bilbo Baggins! Giant trolls! Dwarves throwing plates!), and packs a load of action into its 30 all-too-brief seconds.
