The Hobbit's existing footage has been fused into epic seven-minute trailer: watch now

The Hobbit has been blessed with an epic new trailer online, in which all the footage that has been released so far is cut into one single, lengthy teaser.

The video is fan-made rather than an official release, but it’s still well worth a look, if only to whet your whistle for the film’s grand unveiling next month.

And for those who think trailers these days reveal too much, bear in mind this is seven minutes of a three-film series. It shouldn’t spoil too much…

Check it out, below:

The trailer plays out in a nicely chronological order, and reinforces Peter Jackson’s skill in only releasing promotional material plucked from the very early passages of the story. There’s a glimpse of Gollum, yes, but most of the surprises Bilbo meets along the way have been kept fairly close…

Co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in the UK on 13 December 2012.
