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 Bloom, Richard Armitage, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 3D on December 13th.
