Finally, if you are a 'Lord of the Rings' fan it's what you have been waiting for. 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' hits the box office this weekend and hopes to shatter some box office records. This could be the biggest hit so far in the Christmas season. There is only one other movie released this weekend and it's 'Save the Date'.  Think I'll hobble into the theaters this weekend and see 'The Hobbit.'

Director Peter Jackson returns to the world of his 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy with 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' the first film in the new prequel trilogy that follows the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, as he tries to help a band of dwarves reclaim their treasure from a dragon.

In 'Save the Date,' Sarah questions her life following a breakup and subsequent rebound, while her sister Beth is busy planning her own upcoming wedding.
