Just when you think Sunday is a dead zone for new interesting movie news, “The Hobbit” Facebook page goes and releases 7 groovy new character posters from Peter Jackson’s upcoming “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. Presented and accounted for are Evangeline Lilly, Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Lee Pace, and Luke Evans, getting ready for action and whatnot.
So feel free to get Smaug’ed if you’re so inclined. If not? Eh, there’s always football. Go [insert team of choice here]!
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 forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-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 other; one 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.
