The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Teaser Poster
Bilbo's at the door...

10 June 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Peter Jackson

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Peter Jackson and Team Hobbit, so he’s making sure we haven’t forgotten about the second film in his trilogy by putting a teaser poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug on Facebook.

The imposing image finds Martin Freeman's Bilbo trying to decide how exactly he might best enter the Lonely Mountain. Will he pretend to be a door-to-door salesman specialising in dragon-proof vacuums? Will he try to blast his way in with dynamite? Or will he carefully and sheepishly make his way inside with all due stealth? It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure book with a really, really obvious choice!

Jackson’s second movie will of course find Bilbo and his companions making it inside the mountain, where they’ll have to deal with a certain dragon, none too happy at the intrusion into his massive treasure stash.

With the first trailer for the film due this week, The Desolation Of Smaug is set to hit our cinemas on December 13. Check out Peter Jackson talking about working on the movie below.

Nice!
That is a very evocative image! I was quite underwhelmed with the first film so I’m hoping things start to pick up now. Hopefully the unjustifiable running time of part one has been kicked to the curb this time out! But year, lovely poster! More
