Arriving in theaters later this year, THE HOBBIT is filmmaker PETER JACKSON’S epic three-installment big-screen adaptation of J. R. R. TOLKIEN’S classic children’s story that served as the introduction to Middle Earth and the universe of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. This new one-sheet is just a sample of the incredible artwork JACKSON has been presenting to tease the film and the attached trailer promises visuals on par with his LOTR work. Reuniting with JACKSON for a small role in THE HOBBIT is LORD OF THE RINGS star ORLANDO BLOOM, who admitted to us during a recent interview that he’d show up for the director anytime he calls.

Despite criticisms that breaking this project into three parts has all the earmarks of a blatant cash-grab, if this trailer is any indication it’ll all be worth it.
