San Diego Comic Con starts in just a few days, and while we can expect some big movie news coming out of SDCC, this poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey came online today. It is glorious! This is not the official poster for the film, but a poster created just for SDCC. If the final official poster is anything like this one, I will gladly buy it and put it up on my wall. It features Gandalf the Grey played by Ian McKellan.
As an aside, filming on The Hobbit and a second Lord of the Rings film just finished after 266 days.
UPDATE: It looks like the poster was just too good not to make an official one, so The Hobbit Facebook Page just released the poster with the release date at the bottom instead of Comic Con. That poster was added below. WANT. NOW.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is in theatres December 14, 2012.
