A new one sheet has emerged for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ and it reminds us of the epic journey that Bilbo Baggins will begin next month.
The Japanese movie poster for the film takes a more ensemble approach as opposed to the other movie posters that have concentrated on the characters (such as the one of the White Council, Gandalf, the Dwarves, and the popular one featuring Bilbo by himself). Here, everyone is represented including Gollum, Gandalf, Thorin and even Galadriel as they surround Bilbo who is holding the ring.
The poster does have that ‘Lord of the Rings’ vibe but since it is a prequel and was directed by the same director, this shouldn’t be a surprise.
Check it out below and let us know what you think of the new international poster!
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ can be seen in 2D, 3D, IMAX 3D and HFR when it opens in theaters on December 14th.
