THE HOBBIT 3D (M)
Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf
Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug.
Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo
finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwar ves led by the
legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them
into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and
Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters 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 guile
and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of
Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities
