The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy and in the the film, the dwarfs are going on a quest to take back something that belongs to them. They ask the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) to go with them and he does, but he wants Bilbo to come along as well.

Their journey will take them into the wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever...Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of ingenuity and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

The fantasy adventure also stars Martin Freeman, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Elijah Wood and Evangeline Lilly.
