The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - Sneak Peek VIDEO #2 is Here!
Final 'Desolation Of Smaug' Posters Are Here!
The marketing of December's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" (the 2nd part of the "Hobbit" trilogy from Peter Jackson) is ratcheting up at a furious pace.
The advertising strategy in the run-up to the film has closely hewed to director Jackson's previous Tolkien film adaption trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings.'
And just as we had amber-hued, glowy posters for LotR's Hobbit protagonist Frodo, so too do we have them for his uncle Bilbo and Co. The posters (via Facebook) feature Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellan), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and newly-created for film characters "Tauriel" (Evangeline Lily) and "Bard the Bowman" (Luke Evans). Of course, Martin Freeman returns as the titular hobbit Bilbo Baggins.
In "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" (Part II of the trilogy), Bilbo and the Gandolf-recruited dwarves (with the odd wizard thrown into the mix) must make their way through hostile territory to finally face off against the villainous dragon, Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch and performed by him as well, using performance capture technology).
In part III of the trilogy we should also see the beginning of some threads that will link "The Hobbit" trilogy to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, though the bulk will most likely come in the third film, which comes out in the Christmas 2014 season. Check out some of the new character posters below.
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," debuts in theaters on December 13.
