Last week Nuke the Fridge announced to fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth saga that they will get their chance to catch a glimpse of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in front of the theatrical release of Steven Spielberg’s “Tintin” film, which opens this Wednesday, December 21st.
