These Hobbit posters are coming out at a fast and furious rate, and with good reason. This is one of the few films thats practically guaranteed to have a monstrous opening weekend and likely gross billions for Warner Bros so the marketing machine needs to be relentless over the next few weeks. Check out the latest poster for The Hobbit featuring the White Council Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel, and Saruman gathering at Rivendell.
he Hobbit is a live-action three-part film adaption of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Guillermo del Toro had originally signed to direct the movies, but due to various delays and conflicts with schedules, announced that he would not be able to direct the films. The position was later taken over by Peter Jackson, the director of The Lord of the Rings films, who has also been confirmed as an Executive Producer. Certain cast (Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving) and crew (Weta Workshop, John Howe, Alan Lee, Mark Ordesky) have reprised their roles from the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. The three parts, entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again are to be filmed back-to-back with the release dates Dec 2012, Dec 2013 and July 2014 by MGM and New Line Cinema. In a recent trailer for the movie, the release date for part 1 was revealed as 14 December 2012. It was announced on July 30, 2012 that The Hobbit will be a Trilogy.
