Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" won't arrive in theaters until a year from now -- December 14, 2012 to be exact. But clearly Jackson wanted to give 'Lord Of The Rings' and 'Hobbit' fans an early Christmas gift and this year he delivered a two-fer. First off was the trailer for 'An Unexpected Journey' (which you can see here) and the second, an almost-unexpected treat, if you will, was the fifth installment of Jackson's 'Hobbit' video production diaries, which give fans an early peek into the making of the films before they are released.

Well, it screened recently at AICN's "Butt-Numb-A-Thon" -- an annual 72 hour non-stop screening of genre-minded films, plus some early sneak peeks from the new year -- and it was rumored to appear this weekend in front of Warner Bros' "Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows," and that's likely the case, as here it is: the first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's long-time-coming "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" has finally arrived (almost an ironically fitting title since Guillermo del Toro was originall supposed to direct the film).

While the Steven Spielberg-directed “The Adventures of Tintin” finally reaches theaters stateside this week, it will also bring along a lovely gift for fans of that film’s executive producer and “Lord of the Rings” trilogy mastermind Peter Jackson.
