Two new montage posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has continued to raise our anticipation levels by revealing two new posters. (opens in new tab) spotted the new one-sheets when they went on sale (which is handy if you want to buy them and plonk them on your wall).

The first is an epic in The Lord Of The Rings mould, with lead Dwarf Thorin Oakenshield readying his sword in the centre (we like to think he’s fending off an enemy by shining the light in their eyes).

Elsewhere, the token ‘handsome’ Dwarf Kili (Aidan Turner) smoulders while taking aim with his bow, with a soulful moodiness that’d make Legolas jealous.

TOR . net handily points out that the ugly fella at the top of the page is goblin warrior Borg, who’ll no doubt be squaring up for a showdown with a key character before the end of Part One.

Check out the new poster in full below:

The second poster is a little less visually striking, but draws attention to the White Council, and scores points for featuring some familiar LOTR faces:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on 14 December 2012, with The Desolation Of Smaug following on 13 September 2013, and There And Back Again completing the trilogy on 18 July 2014.
