New footage from ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ just hit the web — and it’s prrrrecioussss!

I hope you like tiny men with hairy feet, because this new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is full of ’em! We got a brief look at the movie back in Dec. 2011, but now we have nearly three minutes of footage from the Peter Jackson epic to drool over — including our first extended look at Gollum! (Or Smeagol, whatever you want to call him.)

Though die-hard Hobbit fans are already complaining about the trailer’s lack of Smaug — the dragon Bilbo battles in the movie, not to be confused with smog, the layer of filth hovering over Los Angeles — I think this trailer gives us plenty to chew on until the movie’s Dec. 14 big-screen debut.

Watch the full trailer below, then drop us a comment with your personal review:
