One of the few remaining highly anticipated films of 2012 for me is Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which opens on December 14th. The first part of a motion picture trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” (yes, just the one book, which is set many, many years prior to the Lord of the Rings trilogy), Jackson’s film stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Ian McKellan returning as Gandalf the Grey, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Andy Serkis returning as Gollum, Benedict Cumberbatch as the Necromancer, Cate Blanchett returning as Galadriel, Hugo Weaving returning as Elrond, Ian Holm returning as Old Bilbo Baggins, Elijah Wood returning as Frodo Baggins, Orlando Bloom returning as Legolas, and Christopher Lee returning as Saruman. Below are four special posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which will be available at IMAX midnight screenings when the film opens.
