|Martin Freeman is The Hobbit|
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."
