Hobbit Part 2 Sneak Peek

Sir Peter Jackson has revealed he'll be live-hosting a first look at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second film in The Hobbit trilogy, on Monday 25 March.
Martin Freeman is The Hobbit
This news comes as details are revealed of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey's foray onto the small screen. The film, which has already netted over $1 billion in worldwide box office sales (not a bad effort for a film the Oscars ignored!), will be out on DVD and Blu Ray on 01 May in New Zealand, with over 2hrs of production diaries from Sir Peter and the Weta team.
It's believed the sneak peek of the second film will last somewhere between 10-20 minutes (a fairly sizable chunk!) - but details have yet to be confirmed.
No word yet on whether an extended version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released -but Sir Peter already hinted there was one in the works, at Wellington's world premiere of the film last year.
...meanwhile the final instalment of the trilogy, called The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will now be released on 17 December, 2014... five months later than planned. It'll follow The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which came out in Dec.2012, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which will reach cinemas in December 2013.
Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.distribution president: "We're excited to complete the trilogy the same way we started it, as a holiday treat for moviegoers everywhere."
