Why wait to listen to “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s” score on December 10 when it’s streaming online right now?

Empire has posted the entire soundtrack for your listening pleasure just about a month before the first “The Hobbit” film hits theaters. Howard Shore’s return to the world of Middle-Earth has been an exciting bonus to Peter Jackson releasing three new “Lord of the Rings”-universe films, and we’re glad we get to spoil ourselves to the soundtrack early.

“I have looked forward to returning to the imaginative world of Middle-earth for quite a while,” Shore told the Salt Lake Tribune. “I read all of the books by Tolkien, including ‘The Hobbit,’ when I was in my twenties, and his deep love of nature and all things green resonates deeply with me.”

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” tells the first part of Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure from Hobbiton to the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he’ll befriend dwarves, face off against goblins, meet a dragon and discover the One Ring that will change his life forever.

Tickets for the first film are currently on sale. Some theaters are also holding “Lord of the Rings” movie marathons in anticipation of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s” release.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is due in theaters on December 13, 2013, while “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” comes out July 18, 2014.

“The Hobbit” tickets go on sale Wednesday

It’s time to return to Middle-Earth. With less than a month left until “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” hits theaters, it’s been announced that tickets will go on sale for the upcoming film at noon this Wednesday.

But Warner Bros. has more in store for us than just a plain old viewing of the movie. There also are marathons of the extended editions of “The Lord of the Rings” that will take place the weekend prior to “An Unexpected Journey” hitting theaters, and tickets for those will go on sale Wednesday as well.

The marathons will take place on December 8 and 9, and we’re guessing they’ll probably sell out pretty quickly. As you probably already know, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is due out December 14. If you’re planning on attending a midnight showing of this much-anticipated film, we’ve learned that the sooner you buy tickets the better.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” tells the first part of Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure from Hobbiton to the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he’ll befriend dwarves, face off against goblins, meet a dragon and discover the One Ring that will change his life forever.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is due in theaters on December 13, 2013, while “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” comes out July 18, 2014.

Will you be buying tickets to either of these events? Are you as excited for “The Hobbit” as we are? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

“The Hobbit” reveals first TV spot and running time

The first TV spot has been released for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which means we’re officially in crunch time until the film’s release in December.

The teaser highlights the two things we loved best in director Peter Jackson‘s “Lord of the Rings” films: the action and the humor. It’s become increasingly clear that “The Hobbit” trilogy lives in the same visual world that the three “Lord of the Rings” movies did, but we’re glad Jackson made such an effort to keep the tones the same as well.

This video shows us everything from Gandalf first approaching Bilbo in the Shire to the trolls incident to Bilbo meeting Gollum, so it seems like those major incidents will all happen in the first “The Hobbit” movie. Whether or not “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is as action-packed as it looks is yet to be seen, but this teaser should help remind fans who aren’t as tapped in to these new movies as we are why they loved “The Lord of the Rings” a decade ago, and get them in theaters to see “The Hobbit” when it comes out.

Meanwhile, Empire has learned that “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will be the shortest movie of all of Jackson’s films set in Middle-Earth.

“It’s looking like it’s going to be about ten minutes shorter than Fellowship was,” Jackson told the mag. “So it’s going to be officially our shortest Middle-earth yet. I mean, Fellowship was just under three hours and this is about 2 hours 40 minutes at the moment.”

The reason why that number isn’t finalized is because Jackson still has to add in the credits and finish the film’s special effects.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is due out on December 14, with “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” hitting theaters on December 13, 2013 and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” due out on July 18, 2014.
