'Hobbit' tickets to go on sale Wednesday

Warner Bros.

Martin Freeman plays Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first film in the trilogy.

If you've been impatiently combing the Internet for every last bit of news about Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" which hits theaters Dec. 14, here's something concrete at last. You'll be able to buy advance tickets to the first film of the planned trilogy starting this Wednesday, Warner Bros. announced in a press release.

Tickets will go on sale online beginning at noon Eastern, and once theaters open on Wednesday, you'll also be able to buy advance tickets at certain locations.


"We’re expecting a big result as we start the journey for all 3 films," a Warner Bros. executive told Deadline.com.

If "The Hobbit" isn't enough Tolkien for you, as of Wednesday, you can also buy tickets to marathon screenings of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. You can park yourself at a theater on Saturday, Dec. 8, or Sunday, Dec. 9, for those three-movie days. These are the extended-cut versions of all three films, so you may want to pass on the extra-large Icee.
