I am inclined to disagree. Posters of Thorin, Gandalf, [In reply to] Can't Post

and Smaug (though I know we won't get the latter in these times of trailer secrecy. . . OH for the 80s when the great creatures were used to sell the movie in the trailers, rather than wait and see secrets lol), because they are all MAJOR players in the story, even without the additions of Dol Guldur and even without any purely speculative additions by Jackson et al. Not all Lord of The Rings posters featured Sauron, even though he is the title character of that work. lol.

I think it is fine to have posters that feature other major characters. Bilbo isn't even going to be everyone's favourite character, and it can be argued that Gandalf and Gollum are more iconic and more easily recognizable, especially in the wake of The Rings movies. I would have much more of a problem with the story straying too far from the book, than with posters that don't show Bilbo.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

                                The mountain in the international poster feels much more like Erebor, than the one on the end of the scroll / DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 8 2012, 6:25pm
