‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Advance Tickets Go on Sale Next Week

The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug

The desolation is upon us.

Fortunately for Ringers and Tolkienites, it’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” Moviegoers can buy advance tickets for the second installment of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy online and in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21 starting at 9 a.m. ET — nearly a month before the film’s nationwide Dec. 13 release.

These ticketbuyers will have the opportunity to watch the movie a day early, at midnight on Dec. 12.

Midnight showings for 2012’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” reeled in $13 million in the U.S. The film ultimately grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.

The New Line Cinema/MGM production (to be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros.), which was shot in 3D 48 frames-per-second, will be released in High Frame Rate 3D in select theaters, other 2D and 3D formats and Imax.
