Yesterday we got our first glimpse at the closing chapter of Peter Jackson's forthcoming fantasy epic The Hobbit with the release of an official image from The Hobbit: There and Back Again featuring Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman. However, with The Hobbit now a trilogy, there's also the small matter of the middle instalment, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly we've now got the first image from the second movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which shows Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins atop an enormous pile of treasure.
Judging by the expression on Bilbo's face, we can probably assume he's just noticed a) a rather angry, fire-breathing dragon, b) Khan, or c) Gary Mitchell...
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens this coming Thursday (December 13th) in the UK and Friday (December 14th) in North America, with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug following on December 13th, »
