New Line Cinema, MGM, and Warner Bros. Pictures have just put out this new poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey featuring birthday boy Bilbo Baggins in honor of Hobbit Day. For those not into all things Tolkien, September 22nd is Hobbit Day as it’s the birthday of both Bilbo and Frodo. The Baggins were born on this date, but in different years – of course.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Synopsis:
The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum.
Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of ingenuity and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey makes the journey to theaters on December 14, 2012.
