Four More Tall Totem Banners for 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'
One ring to rule them all… Oh wait, wrong trilogy. I think this is when I've started to get a bit tired of the lackluster marketing imagery being released in droves for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I'm obviously still insanely excited for the movie itself, and already booked both midnight and opening day tickets, but I'm a bit tired of the same old Photoshop images being used over and over. Why couldn't Peter Jackson get his insanely talented art department to whip up some unique artwork? Found on Cine1 are four "totem" banners, or incredibly tall banners you'll likely see hanging from the ceiling of your theater's lobby.
Here's all four of the new The Hobbit banners, displayed side-by-side as they should be. Do you like them?
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.
