The first teaser poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is out (thank you, Warner Bros.!), and it actually looks pretty darn cool.

We like the fact that our brave hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) stands alone in this new teaser poster for Peter Jackson’s eagerly anticipated second Hobbit sequel.

Our colleagues over at The One Ring.net believe Bilbo could be standing before Ravenhill, which is a remote hill beneath the height of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain, underneath which Smaug (mo-capped and voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) sleeps with the dwarves’ gold. From what’s shown on the poster, it could very well be it. Or not. No matter, it looks stunning and oozes gloom and doom. Just the way we like it.

Bilbo looks like a tiny ray of hope, does he not?

Have a look at the awesome new poster below:


What do you think of the new teaser poster? Is it enough to whet your appetite for The Desolation of Smaug?  If not, a new teaser trailer should also debut tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on Dec. 13, 2013.
