Poster Debut: The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey

The poster for Peter Jackson‘s first half of The Hobbit saga – An Unexpected Journey – has bowed at Comic Con (provided for our viewing pleasure by Slashfilm).

No sign of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), but we do get to see Gandalf (Ian McKellen) alive and well in the green, green, grass of Middle Earth.

But look out behind you – ominous, billowing storm clouds!

Production on both films wrapped in New Zealand just last week.

Cate BlanchettHugo WeavingElijah WoodOrlando Bloom and Andy Serkis all reprise their roles from the original Lord of the Rings trilogy. Freeman’s Sherlock co-star, Benedict Cumberbatch, voices the villainous dragon Smaug.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits Australian cinemas December 26, 2012. Part 2 – There and Back Again – debuts December 2013.

Discuss: Surely you didn’t need a poster to convince you to look forward to this movie event, right?
