The Eye of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has released a new official movie poster featuring Bilbo reflected in the eye of Smaug the Golden.



Barrels out of Bond

An image of the famous Barrels out of Bond scene has also been released. They’ve obviously chosen to keep the barrels uncovered, presumably watching barrels bobbing downstream wouldn’t translate quite as well to film. This is on of the scenes I am most looking forward to.

Meanwhile has released the covers official movie tie-in books. There is a new boxed set, two new covers for The Hobbit and several film-related books. They’ll be available from November 7th.
