'The Hobbit': Gollum Meets Bilbo In New Clip From 'Unexpected Journey' (VIDEO)

Need a little something to tide yourself over until the release of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" on Dec. 14? Six new clips from the film have been released, and in one, the fateful meeting between Bilbo Baggins and Gollum is shown. Watch the video above.

The clip features Martin Freeman as Bilbo, coming across an especially creepy Gollum who wants to know if hobbits are "soft" and "juicy" when eaten.

The five remaining clips show other highlights from "The Hobbit" such as a goblin battle scene and Bilbo's shenanigans with hordes of dwarves.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is the first film in "The Hobbit" trilogy. While the movie has seen generally favorable feedback from early reviews, "The Hobbit" faced some backlash for both the length and technology of the film. At just under three hours, "The Hobbit" was shot with 48 frames-per-second technology (standard is 24 frames-per-second).

The 48-FPS view makes the image extra-sharp which has pleased some viewers and completely turned off others. Because the technology is so new, Warner Bros. is only able to release the film in 48 FPS at certain theaters.
