's first excursion to Middle Earth, which serves as a prequel to the "Lord of the Rings
saw a brace of new images arrive, and today, Warners confirmed that a much-anticipated new trailer for the film will arrive tomorrow on Apple
at 7 a.m. PST/10 a.m. EST /3 p.m. GMT. While, surprisingly, they haven't followed current trends and given us a teaser for the trailer, they have released
one additional image from the film showing Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman
) on a bridge. Yeah, bridges! Check back tomorrow for the trailer, which will be the first widely released footage from the film since the teaser last Christmas, and you can catch "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" in theaters on December 14th, with "The Hobbit: Milking the Cow Dry
