Gandalf, Hobbit


Jackson piloting release from his Facebook page

A new poster for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” was unveiled on the Facebook page of Peter Jackson. He added this comment, “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”

On it you can see Gandalf, played by Ian McKellen, walking purposefully on a country road in the Shire, in a rustic sort of atmosphere. Well, almost. The sky is gray, black, and menacing. The end of Gandalf’s famous stick pierces the sky, coinciding with the appearance of the sun.

New stills from the film are expected to be shown at the next Comic Con.

Comic Con, held in San Diego every summer for four days, is organized around the world of comics and also includes science fiction, film and television.
