The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Now that Halloween is in our past and November is upon us, that means The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is just around the corner in mid-December, and we'll have to get used to 48FPS again when Peter Jackson's sequel arrives. Leading up to the anticipated release, the hype machine is in full swing with seven new character posters featuring Martin Freeman as our title hero along with Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, the return of Orlando Bloom, and the introduction of Luke Evans, Lee Pace (who appeared briefly in the first film) and Evangeline Lily. It's a cool batch of posters, but we want Smaug!

Here are the new posters for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug via IMP Awards:

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.

I didn't know you could photoshop someone so much that they become unrecognisable, whoever did the airbrushing on Martin Freeman needs to be sacked

Why does Martin Freeman look like Benedict Cumberbatch? Did Bilbo and Smaug have a love child in the book?
