One of the new 'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug' posters (of Gandalf the Grey) revealed by filmmaker Peter Jackson.
Filmmaker Peter Jackson reveals seven movie character posters on social media.
AS a run-up to the highly anticipated The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug “global fan event” happening later today, New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson revealed seven new character posters from the movie this morning.
The posters are of Thranduil, Thorin, Gandalf, Legolas, Bilbo, Tauriel and Bard and can be seen on Jackson’s Facebook page.
Comments from fans prove that the visuals are pretty well received, save for a few grouses. One of the biggest complaints is that Bilbo’s face has been overly “photoshopped” .
“Everyone looks great but Bilbo ... such is his life!” said one fan. “Will Ferrell, is that you?” said another, suggesting that the image resembles that of the American comedian.
Jackson has not responded to any of the comments, most probably because he and his team are busy preparing for the live presentation, which is happening sometime on Nov 4 – the director has yet to reveal the times – in London, New York and Los Angeles (Nov 5 in Wellington, New Zealand).
“This is how it’s going to work: The 4 host cinemas will all have members of the Desolation Of Smaug cast on stage, and we’ll all be satellite-linked to allow everyone to participate in a simultaneous Q&A ... as well as present a few special surprises. Additional cinemas will be set up in select locations worldwide where fans can gather and watch the events unfold live. If you can’t be there in person the event will also be streamed live on the Internet,” said Jackson on his Facebook page.
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug opens in cinemas nationwide next month. — Melody L. Goh
