Meet the trolls in a new TV spot for The Hobbit: watch now

“Can we cook him?”

The Hobbit has released a new TV spot online, featuring a first glimpse of Bilbo’s encounter with the trolls around the camp fire.

The new spot contains more of the sweeping landscapes and dwarf-based rabble-rousing that we’ve become accustomed to, as well as throwing in a few new tidbits, such as the aforementioned troll-fest.

“Can we cook him?” inquires one of the brutes, greedily. “I really wouldn’t risk it,” splutters our diminutive hero…

Check it out, below…

The meeting the trolls has long been one of the moments we’ve most been looking forward to (the statue tease on the Fellowship DVD sets things up nicely), so it’s a treat to finally see them in action. Now what about Smaug, eh?

Directed by Peter Jackson and starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in the UK on 14 December 2012.

What do you think of the new teaser? Tell us, below!

      I for one hope that they don't give anything of Smaug away in any of the trailers. 'm starting to get sick of films being ruined by trailers now. Saw Skyfall at the weekend - brilliant film, but couldn't help thinking when i was watching pretty much any of the action scenes, that i'd already seen this on the trailers. There doesn't seem to be much nowadays that isn't left as a 'wow' moment for the cinema

      After reading Empire's stacked issue about The Hobbit I am super excited.

      BTW that's not meant as a dig at TF it genuinely got me excited for the trilogy.

      Way to promote the rival mag lol. I for one, am avoiding all TV spots and teasers etc... Crazy I know, but I like to watch the movie as a whole and not just the bits I don't recognise .
