"Getting excited yet?" Take a look at this. Thanks to a post by AICN's Eric Vespe on Facebook, there seems to be a new (likely officially released) Japanese poster for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, hitting theaters in less than 3 weeks. It was posted on TheOneRing's Google+ and via Facebook user Simon Boudreau, and looks to be an official Japanese one-sheet for The Hobbit, with a new epic-style Lord of the Rings-like design featuring all the main characters, including Gollum, Gandalf and Thorin, even Galadriel, all posed around Bilbo Baggins holding the ring up. Simon's post sums up the excitement: "The smallest character [in the] history of cinema will probably bring one the biggest movie ever this December."

The Hobbit Poster Japanese

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.

    In case anyone is wondering, the tagline translates to "the Lord of the Rings began with this journey"

      I assumed the Japanese title was something like "Many Little Men And A Wizard In Giant Cash-Grab Super Happy Adventure Time"

        no - this is just movies based on the prequel book to LotR. a cash grab is 3 iron man movies, multiple avengers/batman/superman movies; multiple xmen movies; far too many spiderman movies; the 3 future avatar sequels - THOSE are cash grabs. but why not - although i'd like new ideas rather than relentless sequels (or remakes), this is what makes the money and hollywood is trying to do just that.
  • "Can this look anymore like LotR Fellowship of the ring?"
  • if even galadriel is there, where is elrond?
  • The poster in the article has too much contrast and saturation which gave me a negative impression. The one on facebook is great though.

    What a boring, cliché poster. Nothing epic about it.

      My exact thought was "Oh. Epic." yawn.
  • castingcouch
    Orange/yellow and blue. The official colors of the movies.
