There are some scary rumors that extra characters have been written into the Hobbit movie version to be more politically correct and appeal to modern audiences. Sort of like making the dwarves into jokes in TLOTRs, I'm guessing I won't be pleased.
I probably won't rush out to see it, but I will eventually see it - perhaps just on blu-ray. I'm down to seeing about 3 movies a year in the theater at the moment.
