The Hobbit Teaser Trailer This Christmas?

It seems Peter Jackson might be planning a little Christmas gift for Tolkien fans with a teaser trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. This info comes from IGN (via TOR) in an interview with Andy Serkis, who plays Gollum and 2nd Unit Director in the film. The teaser actually seems likely as would match the announcement trailer for The Lord of the Rings trilogy back in Christmas 2000.
With all this anticipation for The Hobbit, surely a teaser trailer should be dropping soon. After all, it was about one year ahead of Fellowship that we got that first teaser, and it was a doozy. IGN recently got to chat with Gollum himself, actor/motion-capture performer Andy Serkis, and we asked him that very question. His response? "There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe."

We also got to ask him about is work as Second Unit Director on The Hobbit, a gig he hopes will lead to future directing work in the future. "It's quite fascinating," he said. "I'm having a ball. It's a huge operation, really. We're on the road at the moment, at various different locations on South Island in New Zealand. There are some truly remarkable landscapes that we're filming in. It's just stunning."

Serkis also added a bit about shooting in 5K at 48 frames. "It's unlike anything I have ever seen before," he explained. "The brain has become so attuned to watching films at 24 frames a second. This is something completely different. It's incredible. You feel inside it and surrounded by it. It's really great. People will not be disappointed."
