Tickets on sale Wednesday for ‘Hobbit,’ ‘Rings’ marathon

I just recently read The Hobbit and I absolutely loved it. I’m stoked to see the movie in December, but I really disagree with their decision to make it into three movies. Is that really necessary? I know I can’t speak for him, but I truly believe Tolkein would be disgusted, because it seems the people behind this soon-to-be movie franchise are just out to make as much money as they can without taking into consideration the fact that they may be destroying the story in certain aspects by doing so. After all, Tolkein didn’t make The Hobbit into three separate books. If he thought the story would play out better in three novels, he would have done so, as he did with The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

What’s that thing you need to do on Wednesday? Oh yes, buy tickets to see “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

Advance tickets to see Peter Jackson’s upcoming fantasy epic will go on sale at noon Eastern Standard Time on Nov. 7 in the U.S. and Canada, Warner Bros. announced over the weekend. That date is weeks in advance of the film’s Dec. 14 release, speaking to the high level of anticipation for the movie, the first of a three-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved 1937 novel.

For those hoping to brush up on their Middle-earth lore, big-screen marathons of the extended cuts of the three films in Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy will take place Dec. 8-9, with tickets for the day-long events also on sale online and in theaters across the country at noon Wednesday.
