Bilbo Fronts The New Hobbit Poster
Sting's at the ready...

By now, you might assume that everyone within relatively easy reach of a cinema* knows that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is on the way this December. But Warners and the team behind the movie are taking no chances, with a new poster boasting Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins holding Sting. Take a look below.

The image is a more heroic Bilbo than we’ve seen recently, and actually bears a slight resemblance to one of the Lord Of The Rings posters from all those years ago, which featured Viggo Mortensen’s Aragorn with his own weapon (calm down). Well, if it ain’t broke… 

Don’t expect the torrent of promo material to let up just yet. And if you’ve missed anything recently, the latest trailer is below, after which you really should do yourself a favour and check out our guide to the new footage.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey finally gets here on December 14.


*Even if it’s just Fred Willard’s local fleapit, which will actually be showing The Knob-it: An Unexpected Orgy.
