Celebrate Hobbit Day with Bilbo Baggins on the New 'Hobbit' Poster
Happy Hobbit Day! Today, September the 22nd, is Hobbit Day, marking the birthdays of Bilbo & Frodo Baggins, both said to be born today, different years of course. In honor of the celebration, The Hobbit UK Facebook page (via RopeofSilicon) has unveiled a brand new Bilbo Baggins poster for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. As we all know, Bilbo is being played by actor Martin Freeman, though he was last played by Ian Holm in Lord of the Rings. Bilbo actually looks like he's ready to kick some goblin ass on this poster. This was not one of solo 3D character posters at Comic-Con, but it's still awesome!
Here's the Bilbo Baggins poster in honor of Hobbit Day and Frodo/Bilbo's birthday today. Via Facebook:
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 14th.
