A pair of December releases get new "portrait" posters to start off the week. First up, Bilbo gets his close-up in the new poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The film kicks off a new Peter Jackson trilogy on December 14.
Les Miserables goes dramatic in their new poster, daring us to "Fight. Dream. Hope. Love." The musical adaptation is being directed by Tom Hooper, who earned an Academy Award from his work helming The King's Speech. Check out a behind the scenes video that was released last Thursday.
Les Miserables opens on a very busy Christmas Day.
What do you think of the new posters?
Follow along on Twitter @DerrickDeane and @Fandango.
Both posters are Epic brilliant and beautiful: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo is a moving emotional treasure and The HOBBIT by Tolkien is a treasure masterpiece. Planning on seeing both Blockbuster Classic films this special Christmas Holiday Season.
The Les Mis poster is wonderful as it carries through the "Cossette" image from the book to the musical to the first movie drawing and now the young actress. It emphasizes that this is the musical people have been waiting to see on the screen for more than 25 years and gives us a powerful slogan to set the mood in anticipation of even more to come.
I really like The Hobbit poster! I think Martin Freeman is a great choice for Bilbo Baggins.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
