The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Getting tired of winter blahs? Well, Peter Jackson has the remedy, and while it's not exactly the same as being there, his latest videoblog from New Zealand on the set of "The Hobbit" films is a nice mini-vacation.

If you're looking for some kind of behind-the-scenes revelation you won't get one -- and Jackson states right at the beginning that filming is already underway on part two, but that we're not going to see any of it for a while -- but you do get to go on a tour of many of the actual locations being used for the film. Along the way you'll bump into Jed Brophy, Aidan Turner and some of the other dwarves in costume, as well as Andy Serkis directing some second unit work. And if you don't feel like booking a ticket to New Zealand for a vacation after watching this, we don't know what to tell you.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" will hit theaters on December 14th (in 3D naturally). Until then, watch below. [Facebook]
