‘The Hobbit’ Releases Yet Another Poster — This Time It’s Scrolling
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.
In the last poster, unveiled on Jackson’s Facebook page, we got to see a group shot of all the dwarves that will be joining Bilbo on the journey to destroy that pesky dragon. Now, we’re reminded of all their names. There are 13 in total besides Gandalf and Bilbo, and to make things a little easier (thank you, Tolkien) most of them rhyme. We’ve got Thorin, Gloin, Oin, Balin, Dwalin, Bofur, Bifir, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori and Bombur. It helps to make a song out of it.
