The Hobbit reveals four more banner posters


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has added another four banner posters to its already mighty hall.

Revealed on the film’s Facebook (opens in new tab) page, the four pieces play up the key selling points, from dinner-partying Dwarves to a sinister Sméagol, by way of a stern-looking Gandalf the Grey (always so much cooler than Gandalf the White).

You’d think a film with an in-built fanbase the size of The Hobbit ’s could rest on its laurels when trying to draw punters to the cinema, but there’s been no slacking on the poster front ( just last week two more were added to the pile ).

Director Peter Jackson is returning to the fantasy land that made him a major Hollywood player with The Hobbit , a three-part adaptation of the JRR Tolkien novel that acts as a precursor to The Lord Of The Rings .

Martin Freeman plays young Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who sets off with a band of 13 Dwarves to reclaim some pillaged treasure from dragon Smaug (voiced and mo-capped by Freeman’s Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch).
