13 dwarves are ready to party (or fight) in new Hobbit poster

A new poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has just been released, and after Bilbo's (Martin Freeman) striking heroic pose with his trusty sword Sting, we're now getting a rather goofy montage of our company of Dwarves.

All 13 dwarves are represented in the poster, and at its center is the leader of them all, the mighty Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage).

Although we might argue that making a trilogy of films from such a short book as J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit could be a tad excessive, there's no doubt in our minds that Peter Jackson will probably cook up something as magnificent and epic as his Lord of the Rings trilogy was.

Have a look at our intrepid company of Dwarves (click for a larger view):

Can you guess who's who?

The Hobbit trilogy includes An Unexpected Journey, opening on Dec. 14, 2012; The Desolation of Smaug, opening Dec. 13, 2013; and There and Back Again, opening July 18, 2014.
