Fasten your seatbelts, Hobbit fans: Warner Bros. and IMAX just closed a deal that's going to send you on quite a ride.

As part of their new agreement to release as many as 20 movies in the IMAX format over the next three-and-a-half years, Warner Bros. announced that Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated adaptation of 'The Hobbit' will be hitting the big -- and very big -- screen in December 2013.

UPDATE: According to Heat Vision, Warner Bros. is scheduling 'The Hobbit' for a two-part release, in December 2012 and December 2013.
