Slightly tweaked trailer for The Hobbit arrives online: watch now

Includes a couple of new snippets of footage

The Hobbit has released a slightly altered trailer online, including a couple of new fragments of footage from Peter Jackson's long-awaited return to Middle-earth.

To the untrained eye, the new trailer might appear to be exactly the same as the one that was released last Christmas, but there are a couple of minor additions worth looking out for.

Firstly, there's an additional reaction shot of Bilbo welcoming Gandalf to the Shire. Then we have a glimpse of Bilbo hiding behind a Mirkwood tree, before finally getting a look at Gandalf and the dwarves pelting through the forest.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

As we said, it's remarkably similar to the first trailer, but at this stage, we'll snap up any new shreds of footage like a hungry hobbit polishing off a plate of bacon and eggs.  Expect a full-on meltdown when the next all-new trailer, eventually arrives.

Newly confirmed by Peter Jackson as being the first part of a trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in the UK on 14 December 2012. As Tolkien himself would say, it's, "a tale that grew in the telling"...

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

      This trailer was seen before Brave back in June... Not new!

      Any more news on the footage shown at comic con that was filmed at that faster (or slower, can't remember which) frame rate? Wasn't it supposed to have had really negative reactions?

      I remember hearing that the new advanced cameras made it feel like watching a news show.
