New Line Cinema certainly loves their Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey movie posters lately. They just released  one featuring all 13 dwarvin characters and now they’re at it again. The studio has released a gigantic panoramic character scroll for the first part of the Peter Jackson two part-er turned trilogy.

Based on the J. R. R. Tolkien fantasy novel of the same name, The Hobbit isn’t shy when it comes to showing off the talent behind the big-budget picture. The studio has been leaking shots of the movie, as well as awesome close up posters – called “one-sheets” – featuring Hobbit stars Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage to name a few. Marketing machines, they are.

This newer, larger then life sized poster features several of the main cast in full profile before traveling on their adventure which eventually leads to Bilbo’s to discovery of the fabled One Ring.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arriaves in theaters everywhere December 14th.
