Check out this fantastic banner for The Hobbit featuring 10 scenes from the Peter Jackson directed film.
Based on J.R.R. Tolkein’s first novel and a prequel of sorts to Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, the story follows Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he heads out of Bag End with a troop of dwarfs to rescue a long lost treasure from a dragon named Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Much of the director’s stellar cast from the first film has parts in the new movies, including Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis. Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Barry Humphries, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner all have roles as well.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14th 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again comes out on December 13th, 2013.
