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.

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, »
