17 character posters for The Hobbit... yeah, buddy, 17


That's a lot of the droolz

There's overkill and there's überoverkill. When it comes to new posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we've achieved the latter. There were 17 character posters released last week. Yeah, 17, also known as a dumb baker's dozen.

The reason for so many character posters? There's one for each of the dwarves. Yup, as you can see there's Thorin Oakenshield, Fili, Kili, Billy Zoom, Snorlax, Slavoj Žižek, Bombur, Biff Tannen, the guy who played Bull from Night Court, Ryu Hayabusa, Peter Dinklage, Hamburger Penis, Tofu Penis, and Hot Dog Gosling. (I probably got a few of those wrong.) Wonder if they'll put out 3,000 character posters for the Battle of the Five Armies in The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

Take a look at each of these posters in the gallery. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters on December 14th. The Hobbit-themed menu at Denny's (aka An Unexpected But Entirely Avoidable Case of Type II Diabetes) starts tomorrow in case you need something to do after voting.
