Pre Comic-Con poster reveals more details about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

With Comic-Con International taking place this weekend in San Diego, any geek shop worth its dicebag is expected to put on an major exhibition for its fans. Peter Jackson's upcoming version of The Hobbit is no exception, and Elijah Wood has already intimated that the film will have a big showing at this weekend's event.

Digital Spy did Elijah Wood one better and posted an epic scroll poster for The Hobbit that was released ahead of the scheduled panel on July 14th. The scroll teases some of the scenes from the film including the meeting of Beorn and Gandalf above, along with the odd quasi-romance between Galadriel and Gandalf.

Fans of The Hobbit are also expecting a Comic-Con trailer with new footage to supplement the existing trailer shown earlier this year:

...which, while nice, has absolutely nothing on this 1960s version of Tolkien's famous tale created by Tom & Jerry's Gene Deitch:

Once the Comic-Con trailer hits the interwebs, I'll be sure to post it here with along with some first impressions of the footage.
