September 22, 2012 - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey / Bilbo poster debuts
Scooped on Saturday, September 22, 2012
New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. have released the domestic poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and it features Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman in the movie). The hobbit poster evokes memories of the teaser poster for the first Lord of the Rings movie, The Fellowship of the Ring, which sported a similar close-up shot of Frodo (Elijah Wood's character) holding Sting, the magical short sword owned by his uncle Bilbo.
For the first time, The Hobbit poster also shows us the credit block for the film. Four producers are listed (Carolynne Cunningham, Zane Weiner, Fran Walsh and Peter Jackson) along with four executive producers. What's interesting is the equally shared credits for all four of the screenwriters which would indicate that all four writers consider themselves as equals on the movie. That's a particularly nice nod from Peter Jackson, who came on after Guillermo del Toro worked on the script for The Hobbit and then left when the movie fell into a financial limbo due to MGM's insolvency.
