New Images From ‘The Hobbit’ Reveal the First Film’s Climax
Thanks to the new 'Hobbit' iOS app, a new series of images from the hotly anticipated film have migrated online for your viewing pleasure. Although most of them are character stills and portraits, one of them reveals where the first film of the trilogy will conclude. Spoilers lurk ahead for those who haven't read the original novel!
Fans have wondered where the first part of 'The Hobbit' (subtitled "An Unexpected Journey") would conclude, especially since the source material is only three hundred pages long. Back when there were only going to be two 'Hobbit' films, Warner Bros. released two massive banners depicting the basic series of events in each film. Since there are now three of them, an updated banner has arrived. It's too big to embed here, so click here and scroll right if you want to see where the first film ends. We won't directly spoil it here, but Bleeding Cool explains exactly what's going on and in which chapter it occurs.
Everything else is pretty much spoiler free and can be gazed upon by anyone. We've included our favorites below, but head on over to The Film Stage to see them all.
'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' opens on December 14th. It will be followed by 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' on on December 13th, 2013 and 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again' on July 18th, 2014.
