New Character Posters for ‘Anchorman 2’ and ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’

By November 4, 2013

Since December is now less than a month away, film studio publicity departments are revving up the marketing campaign for their upcoming releases. Paramount just announced this morning that fans can purchase a “superticket” for Adam McKay’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which will allow them to see the movie two days before its official December 20th release. (They did a similar thing with World War Z earlier this year.) But in the wake of that announcement, the studio has also released some brand new character posters of Ron and some of his Channel 4 News Team cohorts. Take a look below (thanks to Total Film via FS):

Not to be outdone, Warner Bros. has dropped eight new posters for Peter Jackson’s sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Here’s the first one, via Twitter:
