Is there a final official poster yet?

Is there a final official poster yet? Can't Post

potential SPOILER in this post

I know this has been discussed before, but with a week left (and some new spoilery information) I'm getting curious.

There are so many posters now that it's hard to tell if any of them are technically the final/'official' one that will end up on dvd and blu-ray covers.

The one with just Bilbo on it is being used a lot, but I assumed that it was just another 'teaser' poster like the ones with Frodo, Orthanc and Barad-dur, and Aragorn.

Then there's that collage type one with Thorin in the center (which I'm not a big fan of). And I thought that that might end up being the final one, until (SPOILER) I read that Bolg might not even be in the first movie. And he's presented as the main villain on that poster. I'd be very happy if that didn't end up being the final poster. It looks sloppy and crowded, and I don't like how Bilbo is pushed to the bottom corner.

Anyone have any ideas? Have I missed something in the last week?

The Japanese Poster... [In reply to] Can't Post


That is the one that I hope to be the official poster. It's still not quite on par with the LOTR posters, but it fits better than all the other ones we've seen.

I love that one. [In reply to] Can't Post

But having Thorin on there twice bothers me a little. It just seems strange.

And they put Bert on their twice too... They had three trolls to pick from. Come on, people!Tongue

I thought the same [In reply to] Can't Post

They could have easily had the large image of Thorin, and the remaining dwarves at the bottom. There is simply no excuse for the Trolls. It is the best poster thus far though, even with it's faults.

I love this poster too [In reply to] Can't Post

And in all honesty... I hadn't even noticed the two Thorin's until someone here pointed it out.

It's definitely worthy of being on the DVD case.
