With shooting set to start just a little over a month from now, the cast for Peter Jackson’s upcoming take on THE HOBBIT has already started doing a bit of press regarding the film, and while the biggest names here (particularly Elijah Wood and Cate Blanchett) are absent from this particular photo, we have our first look at most of the cast for this hotly anticipated photo.

The cast teamed up for a press conference this week in New Zealand, where this photo was snapped (via AICN), led by The Hobbit himself, Martin Freeman, and I must say, as a person who has never read any of the novels, even I am kind of excited for this damn thing.

The film will shoot over 18 months, which should be no shock to anyone, as the project itself will be two feature films, and while this photo doesn’t feature any costumes or anything, it does get the ball rolling. Honestly, it’s akin to a photo of the AVENGERS cast getting up on stage at Comic-Con. And for that, this thing is damn cool.
