Before Frodo and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, there was another epic tale from Middle Earth.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opened today, and it's not too soon to figure out when you'll watch.
According to IMDB.com, the movie follows the story of "a curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, (who) journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug."
The fantasy film based in a land of elves, wizards and hobbits started just after midnight.
The film debuted at 12:01 a.m. at AMC Tilghman Square 8 in South Whitehall. The show starts up again at 2:15 p.m. today, Dec. 14.
