We’re around a month away from the release of The Hobbit 2 which will pick up the prequel trilogy where we last left things off in 2012. This weekend we saw the release of new character posters which show off the main cast of the upcoming film in all their epic glory.
Here’s a look at those recently released character posters for The Hobbit 2:
We don’t learn much from the character posters but we’re not really supposed to. Rather, they just look really cool and are getting us all excited for the December 13th release of the film.
It’s also hard to look at the Legolas poster and not think of Jennifer Lawrence and her almost identical pose in The Hunger Games posters we’ve seen. Still, fans are going to look at these posters and get excited, although one character we haven’t seen much of is the villainous Smaug, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
We have seen behind-the-scenes footage of Cumberbatch as Smaug but beyond that we haven’t seen too much of his character in the film. There are big things planned for Smaug and while we won’t spoil anything for fans of the film, one thing we can assure you is that not many will be disappointed with Smaug or his place in the films.
The Hobbit 2 hits theaters on December 12, 2013.
