Yikes. Looks like the studio’s PR folks really went all out for this one. Check out a huge, scrolling banner for Peter Jackson’s sure-to-be-epic “The Hobbit Part 1: An Unexpected Journey”, which is one of many big name films hitting Comic Con this month. The banner shows off scenes from the upcoming movie. Not having read the book yet, I can only speculate that these scenes are important to the overall narrative.
“The Hobbit”, starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Peter Hambleton, John Callen, Jed Brophy, Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Jeffrey Thomas, Mike Mizrahi, Evangeline Lilly, makes treks into cinemas this December 19, 2012.
