UPDATE: 'Bard' & 'Legolas' Feature In First Official Still From THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN

Entertainment Weekly seem to have bypassed the second movie in Peter Jackson's new Middle Earth trilogy, and have for us this very first glimpse at the third, featuring Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Luke Evans as Bard The Bowman. Check it out after the jump..



We're not exactly sure why an official still from the third film has made its way online before something from the second, but we'll take it! This snap definitely confirms a much bigger role for Bard in this series of movies, and it's also very interesting that he shares scenes with Legolas - who obviously journeys on from Mirkwood and will not be making a mere cameo as was expected. Thanks to Jonas for the heads up.

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum.

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14th.




UPDATE: Here's a glimpse at Gandalf confronting The Goblin King.
