First Look: Bloom is Back for Third ‘Hobbit’ Flick

First Look Bloom is Back for Third 'Hobbit' FlickTalk about third breakfast! The first film in the new Hobbit trilogy hits theaters in just one more week.

We’ve got a look at the return of Orlando Bloom in the third film of the trilogy — The Hobbit: There and Back Again — to whet your insatiable Middle-earth appetite for even more goodies.

There and Back Again serves as a narrative bridge between The Hobbit trilogy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and having a few familiar faces like Orlando’s certainly helps the transition, even though Legolas does not appear on paper in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey rides into theaters in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on December 14.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be released Dec. 13, 2013; while the third installment in the series, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will hit theaters July 18, 2014.
