Comic-Con Poster for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey debuts
It seems like yesterday, but all at once a millennium ago since we first saw the astounding first installment in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Now, the first part of The Hobbit, based on J.R.R. Tolkiens' beloved work, is merely a few months away.
This new Comic-Con poster for the Warner Bros. Pictures release should get the fans super-hyped for their chance to catch a gander at Gandalf and others at the Con this year.
On December 14th this year, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey makes its theatrical debut with a cast frontlined by Martin Freeman as well as Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly, Andy Serkis and Richard Armitage.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever ... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths ofguile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities ... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
