Staffer MrCere called it last Thursday when the first images of The Hobbit were released by He said, in this industry, it is highly unusual for just one single media outlet to get photos. Expect a few similar, but slightly different publicity shots to make the rounds with other publications in the next few weeks.

So check your local newsstands for the August 2011 edition of EMPIRE magazine and the June 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly to start your The Hobbit collection! Of course we will alert you when other publications are printed with The Hobbit imagery. And who knows, maybe we’ll even get a few pics! *wink* *wink* *hint* *hint* [Empire]
