We’re just a couple months away from the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Along with trailers and the like, we should expect tons of promotions and product tie-ins.

Case in point: Denny’s has partnered with the film franchise for a new contest. Make a short video that proves you’re a massive Hobbit fan, and you may win a trip to the world premiere screening of the movie.

So what if you don’t care about the Hobbit but really like Denny’s? You’re in luck: Four runners-up will receive free Grand Slam breakfasts for a year.

Entries will be accepted through Oct. 31, and full details can be found at dennysfanquest.com.

Oddly enough, Denny’s plans to launch a “menu inspired by The Hobbit” next month. I’m uncertain of a Hobbit’s typical diet, so I can’t begin to imagine what that will entail.
