MUST SEE: New Scrollable Banner Montage for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY!

Tim here. Entertainment Weekly just got the goods on 10 scenes from Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY! (Use the magnifier to get a closer look at the detail in each section; move left and right using the scroll bar under the image.)

Wow this thing is amazing! Check it out. However, if you're on a mobile iOS device this won't work because it's Flash, so make sure you're on a computer. Beware of spoilers however and look out for some of your favorite moments from the book. Here it is: http://www.ew.com/ew/special/0,,20399642_20610399,00.html

Cool isn't it. And you really get to see a few cool things regarding The Hobbit in this scrolling montage of images. Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson have been rolling out some great Hobbit goodness recently. Now there's a silver lining for those on iOS devices... EW has non-flash version. It doesn't have the cool magnifying glass, but you can zoom in as far as your device will take you too examine the image. Also if you're on a computer you can zoom in on the image as well.

Here's the storyline:
THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY opens on December 14.
