FIRST POSTER FOR THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

The first teaser poster for Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG is now up and it shows Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins at the entrance to the Lonely Mountain, the cave where the villainous Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) guards his Dwarven treasure. Check it out and there is only 2 days until the first trailer – woot woot woot

The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece “The Hobbit,” by J.R.R. Tolkien, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

After successfully crossing over (and under) the Misty Mountains, Thorin and Company must seek aid from a powerful stranger before taking on the dangers of Mirkwood Forest–without their Wizard. If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south?

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG hits theaters December 13 with the final chapter, THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN arriving December 17, 2014. The trailer is rumored to be a huge full length two and a half minutes and will contain lots of Smaug and the voice of Khan (oh I mean Benedict Cumberbatch), Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, some spooky spiders and the Nazgul.

There is also the rumour (I am sure all these rumours are leaked) that we may see:

The White Council:
One of the big additions to the story of the “Hobbit” will be the grafting of a tale from the appendices of “Lord of the Rings,” that sees Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel, and Saruman venturing into Mirkwood forest to find out what sort of evil is corrupting the once happy wood.
