It’s been six months since The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hit the big screen. Since then, We’ve had images and some behind the scenes videos of chapter two: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, but nothing really substantial. That changes today with the release of a stunning first movie poster for the film. The poster is just the start of the ball rolling. On Tuesday, we’ll have our first look at the film via the release of the first teaser trailer.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Stephen Fry, Orlando Bloom, Richard Armitage, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 3D on December 13th
