First poster lands for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

First trailer set to arrive tomorrow

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released a first official poster online, featuring the diminutive Bilbo Baggins arriving at the lair of the titular dragon.

The new poster is big on atmosphere, with death and destruction heavy in the air as Bilbo makes his way towards the series' big bad.

Smaug is holed up in the ancestral home of the dwarves, as illustrated by those twin statues outside his gold-filled nest. And from the looks of that smoke billowing from the entrance, we'd wager Bilbo is going to have quite the job winkling him out.

Meanwhile, the first official trailer is set to arrive online at some point tomorrow, hopefully giving us our first proper look at the dragon in all his glory. Unless Peter Jackson decides to hold him back for the main event that is…

Directed by Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage and Benedict Cumberbatch, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will open in the UK on 13 December 2013.

      I hope Jackson does manage to keep the dragon under wraps so the first time we see it is on the big screen - but i just wonder whether there will be anything seen in the upcoming extended edition of An Unexpected Journey? That opening bit with Smaug's attack looked like it could feature a few extra snippets.
