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 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).
