In preparation for the December release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, seven new posters for director Peter Jackson's second installment of the Hobbit trilogy have been released via the film's Facebook page. And if the posters are any indication of what's to come, it looks like Bilbo Baggins and his gang of warriors are more than ready for battle.

The posters feature the familiar faces of Bilbo (Martin Freeman), Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Thorin (Richard Armitage), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and Thranduil (Lee Pace), and introduce the characters Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). While the posters are epic, we're slightly disappointed that there isn't a group shot of our favorite gang of dwarfs or one of the villain of the film, Smaug (played by Benedict Cumberbatch). Hopefully, we can look forward to seeing a few more posters before the film is released.

Check out all seven of the posters below:

Bilbo Baggins finally knows how to wield his sword... maybe.

But it's okay because Legolas can pierce his victims with his arrow and his eyes.

And Thranduil is the prettiest elf of them all. Just look at that headpiece.

The Desolation Of Smaug follows Bilbo, Gandalf, the dwarves, and the elves as they continue their journey to take back their gold from the dragon, Smaug. The film hits theaters on Dec. 13.
