Peter Jackson Shares Exclusive Comic-Con Poster for The Hobbit
Posted 07.07.12 by Chris
After Friday's news that principal photography on The Hobbit had concluded, you'd think Peter Jackson would be off in a hobbit-hole somewhere relaxing but this morning the director was back at work . . . at least on Facebook. On his official Facebook page, Jackson unveiled the movie's exclusive poster for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off later this week (Reelz will be there).
Fans of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy should find the poster to have a bit of a homecoming feel. It shows the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) walking up a path in the Shire.
Jackson included a short message with the unveiling:
Hi everyone. Here's an exclusive Comic Con poster. Be sure to get your copy in San Diego and let me know what you think of it! Cheers, Peter J
Sounds like Comic-Con attendees will be able to get their hands on the poster. Jackson will occupy the massive Hall H on Saturday to (hopefully) debut new footage of his Lord of the Rings prequel. Also on Saturday, stars Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, and Andy Serkis are scheduled to appearing at a signing session to promote the movie.
