The Hobbit Gets A Beautiful New Comic Con Poster
It looks like Warner Bros. is celebrating Comic Con in their own special way. The studio is set to bring three films to Hall H next Saturday, Pacific Rim, The Hobbit and Man of Steel, and it seems they are releasing special posters for each one. Earlier this morning we found the Comic Con poster for the new Guillermo del Toro film, which gave us our first look at the giant mechs known as Jaegars, and we may get the first Superman poster later today, but now Peter Jackson is bringing us back to Middle Earth for his turn.
Posted on Jackson's Facebook page, the image is simply but beautiful, showing Gandalf, played by Ian McKellan, taking a stroll through Hobbiton as the sun shines through the clouds. Could he be on his way to get Bilbo Baggins ready for an adventure? Check out the poster below!
Based on J.R.R. Tolkein's first novel and a prequel of sorts to Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, the story follows Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he heads out of Bag End with a troop of dwarfs to rescue a long lost treasure from a dragon named Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch). Much of the director's stellar cast from the first film has parts in the new movies, including Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis. Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Barry Humphries, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O'Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner all have roles as well. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters December 14th and we'll be reporting every second of their Comic Con panel next Saturday. In the meantime, to see stills, posters, trailers, behind the scenes material and more head over to our Blend Film Database.
