See the Wide Story Banner for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'
Beyond darkness... beyond desolation... lies the greatest danger of all. It's almost time to return to Middle Earth once again. Warner Bros has revealed a very wide (3000px!) promo banner for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, similar to the story banner first released for An Unexpected Journey. This new banner gives us an idea of the story and progression of characters/events in The Desolation of Smaug. The only part they're holding back on is Smaug the Dragon himself, but we do get to see Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, Martin Freeman as Bilbo, Ian McKellan lookin' badass as Gandalf, plus Elves & Dwarves.

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: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.
