The next installment of Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT trilogy hits this December, and now we get another hype-building look at the highly-anticipated second chapter by way of seven new theatrical posters, each of which you can see below and all of which you click on to see full-size. The next film once again features Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellan as Gandalf, but also adds Evangeline Lilly, Richard Evans, and Lee Pace, along with THE LORD OF THE RINGS returning character of Legolas played by Orlando Bloom. Oh, and of course there’s Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug the dragon.

While I admittedly wasn’t the biggest fan of THE HOBBIT movie, the trailer for this one look decidedly more entertaining and dark. We’ll see if they can pick up the pace (no pun intended, Lee) a bit in the next outing. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The film continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous Mirkwood Forest. After escaping capture by the dangerous Woodland Elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all—a creature more terrifying than any before, which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself—the Dragon Smaug.
