In an interview with IGN, motion-capture superstar Andy Serkis revealed that the first trailer for the hotly anticipated The Hobbit can be expected to appear in the near future. “There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe,” the actor said. “It’s just around the corner.” In addition to reprising his role as Gollum, Serkis is also working as a second-unit director on the two upcoming films. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters next year, while The Hobbit: There and Back Again will follow in 2013.
