New banner for ‘the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ features plenty of characters




Warner Brothers have released a massive banner for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and much like last years banner for An Unexpected Journey, it shows plenty of key characters.

The banner has been broken down for a closer look, and in it we get to see (from left to right): Gandalf the Grey (Sir Ian McKellen), Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Elven King Thranduil (Lee Pace), Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Kili (Aidan Turner), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), Fili (Dean O’Gorman) and finally Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans).

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.
