'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' First Poster Features 0 Hot Dwarves

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has released its first poster (see it below!), and while it's magical, mystical, and making me count down the days until December 13, it also features 0 hot dwarves. And that's quite the disappointment, since it's been too long since I've felt the conflicting feelings I felt upon seeing the first film's Thorin-, Kili-, and Fili-featuring poster

Still, J.R.R. Tolkien nerds should be satisfied with the hot dwarf-less poster, which teases Bilbo's (Martin Freeman) first encounter with Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Smaug's gold. Sorry, Daenerys — you're not the only pop culture badass who gets to deal with dragons.
