Before Frodo and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, there was another epic tale from Middle Earth.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens Dec. 14 and it's not too soon to figure out when you'll watch.
According to IMDB.com, the movie follows the story of "a curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, (who) journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug."
The fantasy film based in a land of elves, wizards and hobbits starts just after midnight on Dec. 14.
The film debuts in 3D and 2D at Regal Bowie Cinema at 12:01 a.m. Friday.
