The Hobbit gets new artwork

Late yesterday we saw the launch of the full set of character posters from the last Hobbit film. Not only that, we have also been sent some great other posters for the film.

As always, these have their special names. Quad and one sheet are quite well known but these are called 30 sheet. Basically a big version of the quad poster. Not only that, we have been sent a great “Tapestry” poster – basically a huge long & thin poster.

I’m not a big fan of most of the character posters as they could have been used for any of the last 5 films set in Middle-earth. The new set of posters are quite epic. It does make you go wow on some occasions.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenceless men, women and children of Lake-town.

As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honour in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead.  An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.  As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed.  Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.
