Behold, The First ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ Poster

Peter Jackson crawled out of his hobbit hole to post this gem to Facebook over the weekend. That’s right. You’re looking at the first poster from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” which will open in theaters on December 13.

Hopefully you’re prepared for a lot of Tolkien-themed geeking out this week, because the poster is only the beginning of a few big days for fans of “The Hobbit.” Tomorrow, June 11, the first trailer for the second installment in the prequel trilogy will debut at 1 p.m. ET.

Last week when rumors of a trailer first began to circulate, we rounded up the five things we’re hoping to see from the preview, and you can check that out here.
