The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Parental supervision required for children under 12.
As rated by visitors:

It's been nine long years since we last went on a quest to Middle Earth with Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, and now he’s taking us back to where the legend began with the first part of his epic new Hobbit trilogy! Bilbo Baggins and a band of dwarves set out on a journey to reclaim the Lonely Mountain, and on the way they’ll face goblins and orcs, wargs and giant spiders, and have their first encounter with Gollum and the One Ring. Martin Freeman (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) is Bilbo, and Benedict Cumberbatch (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) also joins the cast - which also sees the return of Ian McKellan, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee and Andy Serkis - in this absolutely unmissable adaptation of Tolkein’s masterpiece.
