There have been a flurry of posters coming through for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, with today's wave of one-sheets coming from across the pond. Below, you can find six French character posters featuring Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom). How many more character posters will debut before director Peter Jackson's Middle Earth sequel hits theaters next month? We'll have to wait and see.
