Earlier today, we showed you the final trailer for The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug. Here now, is the final poster as well as a gallery of stills from the third trailer. I’m so excited for this. Thank goodness the extended edition of the first movie came today so I can have something to tide my Hobbity geekiness over until the film opens on December 13th.

  1. Love love love the poster. Smaug in the smoke from Gandalf’s pipe. It’s not the Catching Fire IMAX poster, but it’s terrific. Ender’s Game and DOS are not only the highlights of my moviegoing year, they’re two of the highlights of my moviegoing life. I waited since I was thirteen to see Ender, but I’ve waited since I was eight to see Smaug. Now if they would only do justice to Dune…

    1. I really did love this too. The poster art for the entire Tolkien film saga has been pretty stellar stuff and not the utter failure most posters are. Catching Fire is the standard and I don’t think it can be beaten. It may be the best poster I’ve seen in the last five years. Maybe they hired a fan? Perhaps studio execs have the INTERNET as well and can google “talent, people who have it and love my product”.
      Dune is so tricky. If you haven’t read them, the House trilogy by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson about Houses Atriedes, Harkonnen and Corrino was really fantastic a few years back. The SciFi miniseries was a good step towards what you’d want, but that is a monster to take on and I know of no one who’s even trying right now.

      1. The name of a contemporary Dune-appropriate director does not spring to mind. Everyone, including me, longs to see Jorodowsky’s version, but let’s just be honest with ourselves: it would have been AWFUL, totally unwatchable and doomed to be utterly dated within a decade of its release. I actually love the visuals in Lynch’s take. If those images could somehow be merged with the script from the miniseries, we would really have something.

      2. Did you watch the SciFi channel miniseries? It had James McAvoy and William Hurt and I really liked most of it. I know they did another one, but you could probably find the first one online for a buck. Oh, btw, I keep making you go buy books or yammering at you to; do you have a Kindle? If so I can lend a lot of this stuff to you for free. No, I can’t think of a “Dune Director” off the top of my head. Cuaron just did for some reason and I don’t know why….

      3. My problem with the miniseries was that the production values were not commiserate with the material. I thought the series looked a bit tacky and cheap. But the performances were terrific, and the script actually did justice to Herbert’s amazing story.
        The books you mentioned sit on my shelf. I haven’t read them, mostly out of fear. If you say they’re good, I’ll pick the first one up today.

      4. Other than Middle Earth, the Dune universe is the most epic, fully-detailed fantasy world ever dreampt up by one author, and in order to convey the scope and detail, a LOT of money must be spent. And the first volume alone warrants an entire trilogy of films. Throw in the notorious disaster that was the Lynch/DeLaurentis version, and you can understand why Hollywood has not rushed to pursue this. But I could see a talented writer/director figuring out a way to pare the story down to its essentials, creating something closer to a lean, violent thriller than a ponderous costume drama, all while remaining true to the spirit of the book. I’d have loved to see Ridley Scott circa 1980 sink his teeth into this.
