The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a little over a month away from release, and the promotional activity is slowly picking up pace. This week has been busy with a new trailer, live Q&A with Peter Jackson, a new behind the scenes production blog and now we have a small collection of new posters, images and also the end credits song, I See Fire by Ed Sheeran.
It is also worth noting that here in the UK, tickets for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug are already on sale.
