Just as we suspected, the folks at Warner Bros. have another poster for 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.' However, rather than just giving you the new mind-blowing image to drool over, we decided to make things... a little more interesting. We've transformed the poster into a mix-matched puzzle and you have to rearrange it if you want to see the new poster.
The folks behind 'The Hobbit' haven't been holding back on the poster front. Back in the days of San Diego Comic-Con, director Peter Jackson released the first official poster and image of Gandalf in this 'Lord of the Rings' prequel trilogy, and since there have been a couple more -- one featuring the young Bilbo and the other highlighting his dwarven companions.
Too bad none of them really gave any clue as to what to expect from the upcoming 'Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' aside from that first scrolling banner that showcased 10 scenes from the flick, of course. Now, Warner Bros. has once again come up short with the reveals with its new 'Hobbit' scrolling banner featuring the entire group.
Since the release of the second 'Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' trailer hit the airwaves during Tolkien Week, Peter Jackson and his crew at Warner Bros. have been light on the promotional material for the upcoming book-adapted flick. The director recently gave us a look at one of the new 'Hobbit' posters, which featured Bilbo holding his trusty "Sting" sword, but new images or sneaks at the film were scarce.
But now with the latest poster, some other characters from the highly anticipated December movie get their time in the spotlight.
Today saw the release of the second trailer for Peter Jackson's first film in his second trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien films, 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.' But that wasn't all the footage that came out. Warner Brothers created an app that let you choose which ending the trailer had. Now that footage has been assembled.
'The Hobbit' fans know that this week marks Tolkien Week, which is extra special do to it also being the 75th anniversary of 'The Hobbit's' publication date and all. Plus, September 22 is "Hobbit Day," the day in the book series of both Bilbo and Frodo's birthdays. So, what better way to celebrate this extraordinary occasion than having Peter Jackson release a brand-new trailer for the much-anticipated 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'?
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!
So we're exceptionally curious about 'The Hobbit' films now that Peter Jackson and company have decided to transform two pictures into three. We have no idea if this was a good decision, or just a chance to take advantage of audiences that fell in love with the first three films. What we do know are the titles of the trilogy and their release dates.
Every time there's a new advance in cinema tech, it often comes at a price. In most cases that price is directly transferred onto the viewer. Those fearing that seeing 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' in its original 48fps frame rate would have to drop more cash on their tickets can breath a sigh of relief. Warner Brothers isn't charging more... yet.
