Warner Bros. has released the first poster for director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second film in the Hobbit trilogy.  The poster unveiling comes in advance of the film’s first teaser trailer, which will be released online this coming Tuesday, June 11th and will be attached to screenings of WB’s Man of Steel next weekend.  The poster does a nice job of teasing the peril that lies ahead on Bilbo’s (Martin Freeman) journey, and while the title pretty much explains what the film entails, I’m really interested to see how Jackson plans to fill out the final entry in the trilogy, There and Back Again.  Nevertheless, we’ve got Smaug to deal with first and we’ll get an extended look at footage from the film next week.

Hit the jump to take a look at the full poster, and check back here on Tuesday at 10am PST to watch the teaser trailer.  The film also stars Ian McKellan, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Stephen Fry, Orlando BloomRichard Armitage, and Benedict CumberbatchThe Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 3D on December 13th.

    I thought the 1st one was decent but a bit of a disappointment. Part of the problem was knowing a cliff hanger/unfulfilled ending was certain. I’m really not a huge fan of it but know it is put in place to not rush the story (and also fill pockets with as much coin as possible). Never the less, it was better than I thought it would be and of course I will be seeing this one.

    Side Note: Part of me hopes they keep Smaug a mystery until the movie because trailers tend to give enough away to begin with.

    • boom

      yeah I thought it was better then I thought it would be since most people were complaining about the movie.

      • pk

      I was slightly let down when I watched it in the theater, but remembering back to watching Fellowship, there was SO much distraction the first time if you were very familiar with the books. This time, even those who hadn’t read the books had the distraction of the LOTR movies to compare it to as well. So, the differences, the odd HFR screening, and 3D. It was all a bit much.

      Watching it projected at home however made me love it. In fact, some of my favorite parts are where it expanded on the story of the book.

      It’s still a bit stilted at the start trying to tie it to old Bilbo and Frodo, and we don’t have that immediate draw of Fellowship where everyone is best friends thrown into crisis. In Hobbit it’s sort of the opposite. A bunch of strangers agree to pursue something (only Balin and Thorin have a moment of close friendship at the start).

      The beauty is that the characters have grown together by the end of the first movie. As sequels progress, opposite again of LOTR, the group gets tighter and tighter because (besides Gandalf) they stay TOGETHER. Where Fellowship has the strongest emotional core of it’s three, I hope and think the Hobbit movies will peak at the finale where it should.

      Shortly: It may grow on you, it has on me.

        Same thing here, I was VERY disappointed with ‘An Unexpected Journey’ when I first saw it, but subsequent watches on DVD allow you to settle into the whole thing and enjoy it so much more… it’s still 20 minutes too long and not in the same league as ‘Fellowship of the Ring’ but the material and the tone is markedly different so it works for me!

        With that teaser poster, I’m betting the showdown with Smaug over LakeTown will be the upcoming film’s big climax, which is a perfectly logical place to lead into what follows after that event… although whether there’s enough substantive content (big battles notwithstanding) to fully justify a near-three-hour third installment remains to be seen.

        But if you’re gonna bet on anyone, bet on Peter Jackson, he’s the world’s best fantasy filmmaker at this time, so I have faith he’ll pull the trilogy treatment off in fine style…

    Why to people keep bitching about An Unexpected Journey? Newsflash: THE HOBBIT WAS WRITTEN FOR CHILDREN. IT’S A KID’S BOOK! LOTR was written for ADULTS. The Hobbit is NEVER going to be as good as LOTR, just by the sheer limitation of the source material and the original intended audience.

    Jackson is a phenomenal writer and director but faces a HUGE catch-22 here. The Hobbit does NOT have the depth of story, complex relationships or intimacy of characters as LOTR. His challenge is to broaden the story by adding some of these elements WITHOUT insulting the purists and fanboys who don’t want a single thing changed. That’s a VERY tall order. You have to remember: The Hobbit has NO female characters in it. That’s a huge limitation right there. LOTR has a much more diverse cast and the extremely complicated emotional relationships between Frodo/Sam, Aragorn/Arwen, Elrond/Arwen, Eowen/Aragorn, Faramir/Denethor, not to mention the love-him/hate-him character of Smeagle/Gollum. In addition to the story and cinematic lushness, LOTR has a VERY strong emotional center that viewers buy into immediately….that The Hobbit story does NOT have, because Tolkein wrote it that way….for KIDS. That makes the story feel emotionally hollow. Add to this that what’s at stake in The Hobbit is nowhere near what’s at risk in LOTR. In LOTR, the fate of the world is at stake. In The Hobbit…the dwarfs need to get their gold and home back. So what? If they don’t, the world will go on just fine. So there isn’t nearly as much suspense built into the story right up front.

    Jackson is trying to serve two masters with The Hobbit by not changing and yet….changing the story for a broader audience. If anyone can do it, he can. The first film looked gorgeous and was great, but completely lacked an emotional center. That’s why it felt inconsequential, like the book. That’s no fault of Jackson’s. We got just a tinge of emotional display from Thorin at the very end…but we needed more of that from someone else from the very start. I’m still very excited about the next two films and the whiners needs to research the source material….and then try to write something professionally of their own….if they’ve got any time left after bitching.

      Agreed. But still, I was disappointed by four things in the movie:

      1-The useless appearance of Old Bilbo and Frodo. It just doesn’t work. Bilbo looked way too old with a waxy face ( because Sir Ian Holm is now too old) and Frodo looked like a man who tries to fit in a young boy garment.
      I know that Peter wanted to please the fans, but this part didn’t work for me.

      2- Azog and the Gobelin King were awful. They could have used prosthetics instead of these CGI diarrhea.

      3- Galadriel looked like a bored cheerleader during the white counsil

      4- Too much “RUN!” were said during the movie.
