Peter Jackson crawled out of his hobbit hole to post this gem to Facebook over the weekend. That's right. You're looking at the first poster from "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," which will open in theaters on December 13.
Hopefully you're prepared for a lot of Tolkien-themed geeking out this week, because the poster is only the beginning of a few big days for fans of "The Hobbit." Tomorrow, June 11, the first trailer for the second installment in the prequel trilogy will debut at 1 p.m. ET.
Last week when rumors of a trailer first began to circulate, we rounded up the five things we're hoping to see from the preview, and you can check that out here.

For the second trip back to the world of outdated video formats and found footage shorts, the folks behind "V/H/S/2" assembled a team of seriously talented directors to create segments for the anthology series, included the director of the amazing "The Raid: Redemption," Gareth Evans.
Evans' segment, which he co-directed with Timo Tjahjanto, is called "Safe Haven," and the trailer gave us the sense that they mean that ironically, since it involves a bunch of men shooting themselves in the head simultaneously. Plus, there was that exploding guy.
Anyway, MTV Movies blog is pleased to bring you an exclusive poster from artist James Stokoe that plays off some of the imagery from "Safe Haven." Check out the full poster after the jump!
Lionsgate has debuted an awesome new poster for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." In it, Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen wears her bow and arrow and stands on top of a mountain as the mockingjay symbol forms in the clouds behind her.
"The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand," the tagline of the new poster reads. It was posted by the official "Hunger Games" Instagram account.
Ever since the WonderCon footage from Guillermo del Toro's monsters-verus-robots flick "Pacific Rim" debuted earlier this week, it has seemed like the marketing campaign for the movie has kicked it into a new gear. Yeah, we were excited by the first trailer, but they were clearly holding out on us. We needed more kaiju, and that WonderCon footage delivered. (Using a ship as a baseball bat also helped.)
Now an enormous banner poster for "Pacific Rim" has debuted, and it's clear that Warner Bros has keyed in on the message they should be sending out to potential ticket buyers. "This movie had enormous robots fighting equally big monsters."

"Pacific Rim" opens in theaters on July 12.
If you're not already on board with Guillermo del Toro's new movie "Pacific Rim," then Warner Bros. is looking to enlist you. The studio released a new promotional image on Twitter that's styled as a recruitment flier for the Pan Pacific Defense, better known as the PPDC.
If you go to the PPDC website, you'll find a number of the viral "Pacific Rim" videos and blueprints for the various Jaegers that have been released up until this point. It's a cute touch, and hopefully Warner Bros. keeps rolling out more nontraditional teasers for GDT's new movie in the months leading up to its July 12 release.
Two days ago, Patton Oswalt won the internet with a totally improvised pitch for "Star Wars: Episode VII" from an episode of "Parks and Recreation." The unedited take quickly went viral, and Oswalt was once again declared the King of the World.
Entertainment Weekly has created a poster to illustrate the genius of Oswalt's idea, and it is simply perfect. It works as a nice homage to cover of the original "Infinity Gauntlet" comic, plus it has robo-Chewey.
Spend a few minutes taking a good look at the crafty artwork above. There's sure to be a character or two that you didn't notice right away.
For Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn's next movie together after "Drive," you'd expect a similar dream-like, violent yarn to match their first collaboration. You may not have been expecting the seriously tripped-out trailer for "Only God Forgives" that popped up a few weeks back.
Now, after an official Cannes line-up announced the duo's return to the festival, two new international (and NSFW) trailers have gone online (via The Playlist), and they give you more of the same but with some extra insight into the story of revenge and Thai boxing.

After the first trailer for James Wan's supernatural horror flick, "The Conjuring," came out of nowhere and scared the crap out of anyone who saw it, a new poster for the film, which stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as paranormal investigators, continues the movie's usage of smart, creepy imagery to sell itself.
It's refreshing to see a horror movie rely on simple, arresting pictures to get us interested. It's absolutely working.

The first official poster for "Ender's Game" has been released.
The reveal comes courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, and the poster shows Ender suited up as he stares out of the Battle School. Though it has a "Tron: Legacy" feel to it, the poster is a nice tease for fans who know what they have to expect in the new movie.
Late last night, the newest trailer for "Star Trek" hit the web, debuting a ton of new footage and an outrageously gratuitous shot of a female character in her underwear. But hey, this thing needs to make a lot of money, so that's all good sport, right?
The objectification of Alice Eve aside, the preview gave us our best sense yet of who this John "Not Khan" Harrison guy is, plus a ton of new actions sequences.
