New ‘Hobbit’ TV Spot Shows Bilbo Leaving Home: VIDEO


Middle Earth fanatics got more glimpses of the upcoming Hobbit adaptation with a new TV spot added this week which features a closer look at Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins being sent out into the world by Ian McKellen: "The world is not in your books and maps -- it’s out there."


In related news is Denny's stomach ache-inducing new 'Eat like Bilbo Baggins' menu:

Many of the dishes are simply rewarmed stand-bys: “Hobbit Harvest Pies” are just pumpkin and pecan pie by another name. But some of the menu items actually seem to have involved a bit of hard-spun creativity. There’s “Lonely Mountain Treasure” — cubes of seeded cake — and “Radagast’s Red Velvet Pancake Puppies” — balls of pancake batter studded with white chocolate chips. Both are offered with a side of cream cheese icing to speed you on your way to the land of type II diabetes.

There’s also “Bilbo’s Berry Smoothie” (old hobbits have to stay healthy, after all) and “Lone-Lands Campfire Cookie Milk Shake,” which we think could have been more evocatively titled, “Campfire on Caradhras.” On second thought, Denny’s title does sound a bit more tasty.
