Tag Archives: Hobbit cover artwork

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t.

Standard

The actual artwork for the Blu-ray release of  The Hobbit: An Unexpected  Journey, that is. It is showing at some retails sites such as Blu-ray.com. However, Amazon does not yet show any artwork (nor is it currently allowing pre-orders). Here’s what Mr. Cere at TORn had to say:

It is possible this image was leaked from the studios involved but it seems unlikely and this image isn’t a powerful “buy me” image from the movie. No word from any official channels has surfaced to say this is or isn’t fake so we advise not accepting it as the gospel truth at this point.

Of course, I’d be quite happy if only this guy was on the front.

It still appears both the Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D versions will be released March 19 with the Extended Edition to come out in October. Another question or two:  Do you plan to purchase one of the Blu-rays? Will you wait for the Extended Edition? Or do you plan to splash out for both?

I know that if I get the Blu-ray (and honestly, can I hold out until October??)  I’ll have to borrow Benny’s PlayStation. I might keep it longer than he’d wish . . . because the Warrior Prince was made for  Blu-ray.
