From “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (released via E! Online) the two new stills are featuring Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins) and Andy Serkis (Gollum).

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is set for a December 14th, 2012 release date, while ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ will arrive in cinemas December 13th, 2013. This possible third film will presumably follow in 2014, in the same way the films in Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy were released over three consecutive years.

“We’ve been certainly talking to the studio about some of the material we can’t film,” Hobbit director Peter Jackson teased at Comic-Con. “And we’ve been asking them if we can do a bit more filming next year…I’d like to shoot a bunch more material that we can’t shoot. There’s so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven’t been able to squeeze into these movies.”
