Whether or not you like the idea of so many movies being converted into 3D, the fact is that it’s a huge money maker and that’s why it happens. The next eagerly awaited film to get the 3D treatment is “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
The Italian website, HobbitFilm.it, has stumbled upon pictures of exclusive 3-D glasses for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” that opens in theaters on December 14th. The packaging says these are “Limited Edition Real D certified glasses.” So if you collect things related to “Lord of the Rings” this would be a good acquisition. We have no idea how difficult the glasses will be to obtain.
Personally though, I’m a big fan of Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. I don’t like the idea of the “Hobbit” trilogy being in 3D, but since I’m such a big fan I think I’ll pick up a pair of these glasses for myself.
Check them out and tell us what you think.
Here is the synopsis for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” by Namtar:
Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shape shifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities…
