Get Ahead of Yourself and Check Out Orlando Bloom in the Third 'Hobbit" Movie

Warner Bros.

Wanna see your future? All you need to do is read on and you'll catch a glimpse of a movie you'll probably be seeing in December 2014.

And the glimpse is made even better by the fact that it's Orlando Bloom. In the third "Hobbit" movie.

Entertainment Weekly has just unveiled the image of Bloom as Legolas in "The Hobbit: There and Back Again." Of course, it begs the question of just what Legolas is doing in the third installment of the "Hobbit" trilogy other than providing fan service, considering the character doesn't appear anywhere in the book. But director Peter Jackson thinks it would be weird not to have him.

"He's [elven king] Thranduil's son, and Thranduil is one of the characters in 'The Hobbit,'" Jackson explained. "And because elves are immortal, it makes sense Legolas would be part of the sequence in the Woodland Realm."

Whatever, nobody really cares. All we really care about is getting a chance to look at this again.
