Looks like theres a TON of good flicks coming out, check out some of the trailers.
Incase you don't know, this book was the predecessor to The Lord of the Rings, and this is what started it all. This was also the first novel I ever read. Basically, Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit, journeys to the Lonely Mountain accompanied by a group of dwarves to reclaim a treasure taken from them by the dragon Smaug.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present day. It tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this 'coming of age' milestone and Dr Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls. Enlisting a series of wild, comical and compelling characters in his journey, Dr Parnassus promises his daughter's hand in marriage to the man that helps him win. In this captivating, explosive and wonderfully imaginative race against time, Dr Parnassus must fight to save his daughter in a never-ending landscape of surreal obstacles - and undo the mistakes of his past once and for all...
This movie has a killer cast of Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell,
Verne Troyer, Christopher Plummer and is directed by the incredibly talented Terry Gilliam. Looks amazing. Of course, Tyler Jay gave me the heads up about this one...
Also, although there's no trailer, the Green Lantern (my favorite superhero) movie just got the green light and a $150 million dollar budget. Starts shooting next spring. I've very excited. ALSO, The Avengers trailer won't be out til 2011, but that features Captain America,Ironman,The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and of course Nick Fury
