Five Better 'The Hobbit' Character Posters & Ed Sheeran's Credits Song

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

All right, fine. One more load of stuff from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug this week, and we're pretty sure that's it. Yesterday brought the most recent production blog, but now we have five more character posters for the film, but these are far superior to the previous, mostly bland, character posters released earlier this week. In addition, we've got a cool music video featuring the recently unveiled credits song from chart-toppping musician and singer Ed Sheeran. You can read Peter Jackson's story on how he chose Sheeran to end the film on the right note (no pun intended) on Facebook. Posters and song below!

Here's the music video for Ed Sheeran's song "I See Fire" from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:

And here are the five new character posters 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.

They still suck and look too photoshopy but the Bilbo and Bloom/Lily could have been really cool.

So that's 1 Oscar nomination (probably win too) pretty much guaranteed then with Ed Sheeran's song
