You remember "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, right? Well, it's time now for that other giant epic of Middle Earth, the latest blockbuster movie coming for the holiday season: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." It opens tonight, and it's not too soon to figure out where you'll watch.

According to, the movie traces the story of "a curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, (who) journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug."
