A new trailer for Peter Jackson's film "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first of three films that serves as a prequel to his hit "Lord of the Rings" trilogy has been released and features part of a key scene with a popular and sinister character - Gollum.

The animated character, portrayed by Andy Serkis, is obsessed with the One Ring of power, which he calls his "precioussssss." It makes up a surprise part of a game of riddles he plays with the film's hero, the insecure but curious Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, and is a crucial element of the plot of both "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings."

Director Peter Jackson announced on July 30 that "The Hobbit" will be released as a trilogy, rather than just two films.

"Upon recently viewing a cut of the first film, and a chunk of the second, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I were very pleased with the way the story was coming together," Jackson said in a statement. "We recognized that the richness of the story of 'The Hobbit,' as well as some of the related material in the appendices of 'The Lord of the Rings,' gave rise to a simple question: do we tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as filmmakers and fans was an unreserved 'yes.'"
