Smoky Dragon on Final 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Poster
Hot on the heels of last night's new character posters for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, a final theatrical one sheet has emerged. The new poster features all seven of the characters who got their own posters yesterday, positioned in the traditional floating head and body form that is used for nearly every blockbuster film at some point in their marketing campaign. However, one cool addition is the smoky form of the dragon Smaug (voiced and motion captured by Benedict Cumberbatch) coming from Gandalf the Grey's pipe. It's not the most original poster that could have been created, but that's certainly a nice touch.
Here's the final theatrical poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from 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.
