The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trailer lets the darkness bind it
The film revolves around Jack, a pure being [N 1] who must stop the Lord of Darkness who plots to cover the world with eternal night. It is often described as a dark fairy tale and as a return to more original and sometimes disturbing fables originating from the oral tradition of ancient times before reading and writing were widespread. In order to cast the world into eternal night, Darkness Tim Curry sends the goblin Blix Alice Playten on a mission to kill the unicorns that guard the light and bring him their horns. After failed attempts to progress their relationship, Jack takes Lili to the lair of the unicorns, something that is forbidden amongst mortals. When Lili distracts the stallion by stroking it, another forbidden act, Blix shoots it with a poison dart from his blowpipe , and the unicorns flee.

One suspects he might have envied the New Zealand film-maker's ability to retrospectively fashion a tone for his new movie that is entirely in keeping with the three earlier films — and he would have loved the singing. Tolkien's Hobbit is a very different tale to its later, darker sequel — a gentle, often whimsical children's yarn with an almost Brothers Grimm-like quality. Even in the midst of Mirkwood or the depths of the misty mountains, there is very little real horror in its telling: Bilbo Baggins, a wizard named Gandalf and a cavalcade of dwarves may journey into extreme peril, but their travails are always presented as if through the cosy, fuzzy prism of a child's glass bauble. We're never in any doubt that, no matter how bad things get, it is all part of a wonderful adventure. There's very little of the sinister overtone and sense of irredeemable loss that pervades the book's brilliantly icy and expansive sequels.
