Director Peter Jackson poses for a portrait while promoting his film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in New York, December 7, 2012. Jackson wants to scare children with his latest movie – and perhaps even a few grown ups. The first of the Hobbit movie trilogy is about to hit theatres, and Jackson says he’s tried to hold true to its roots as a children’s fantasy story, with scary bits.
