Smaug’s got his eye on Bilbo in new ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Samug’ poster, plus exciting new image



A brilliant new promo poster has been unleashed for Peter Jackson’s sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and we are very happy to share it right here with you.

The poster features Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) in the reflection of the Dragon Smaug’s (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) giant eye, and is a clear indication that no matter how quiet, or skilled the Hobbit is at sneaking around, there is no getting past Smaug without getting into some serious trouble.

A new image has also been released that shows some of the Dwarves having some fun on rapids. Judging by the looks of their faces, this should prove to be a thrilling action sequence to hopefully match the brilliance of the chaos in The Goblin King’s lair in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventures of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a production of New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television distribution being handled by MGM.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens nationwide across the UK on 13th December 2013.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.


  1. if your the crater of the hobbit I’d like to tell you that the movie was awesome I didn’t expect to see Smaug .
