Find out when you can see the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

06.06.2013

Rumor has it that the first trailer for THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG will play before MAN OF STEEL. Well it seems that the rumors are true according to an exclusive from Emileeid.

The cool part is that not only will it be 2:30 minutes but it will also be a theatrical trailer rather than a teaser. I'm here for Evangeline Lilly. I already know to anticipate a long journey, epic battles, immense danger, and mystical music. These are all things I enjoy.

The trailer will premiere online for the internet masses on June 12th at 10AM PDT.

Synopsis: The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

I just hope it's got a better handle on the emotional elements than the last one.

Woo! My favorite part of the book is the trip through Mirkwood which is going to take place in the sequel. I really enjoyed Unexpected Journey and I'm probably going to enjoy this one just as much!

Skipping the trailer...

I'm on a trailer-skipping binge. And I've found that I enjoy movies a helluva lot more by not seeing the trailers. Can't wait for this movie. The last one was awesome but did have it's flaws. And as cool as del Toro is, the man's prints were all over that film and it showed, and sadly, it wasn't cool. This one and the next will be more of Peter Jackson's thing, so I'm pretty f*cking excited.

Hate to jump on the bandwagon...

...from the comments below me, but I have to say I agree. An Unexpected Journey just wasn't good. Especially when compared to the original LOTR trilogy (which had its fair share of flaws), but even when judging it as the first movie of a new trilogy. Radaghast and his bunny sled and bird crap was just plain awful (The Jar Jar Binks of Jackson's Middle Earth), re-writing the origins of the Witch-King and the Ringwraiths was a slap in the face, bringing in Christopher Lee only to have his lines

Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Andy Serkis as Gollum were some of the only bright spots at all.

I loved the LOTR and Hobbit books and I mostly enjoyed Jackson's LOTR trilogy, but the Hobbit is not even close to being in the same league. I'll check out the 2nd and 3rd movies, but what a disappointment.

I've never enjoyed the LotR movies, and it's not because I prefer the books - I've never read them. I tried reading Two Towers, but got bored a few pages in. That said, I have always enjoyed the overall story. But the way Peter Jackson made the LotR has always been extremely painful and irritating to watch. Watching them is a chore. The first time I saw the LotR trilogy, I hardly understood what the hell was going on, and certainly didn't enjoy anything. The 2nd time around, I understood what

That said, I have always enjoyed the overall story. But the way Peter Jackson made the LotR has always been extremely painful and irritating to watch. Watching them is a chore. The first time I saw the LotR trilogy, I hardly understood what the hell was going on, and certainly didn't enjoy anything. The 2nd time around, I understood what was happening, but still didn't enjoy it. The acting, the big speeches, the generic medieval style horse battles, and the shoddy special effects have always been unbearable to me.
Then comes The Hobbit. I have tried reading the book a couple times, and was again bored to death. But I still like the story overall. I watched the cartoon, and was bored to death by it as well. In spite of all that, I saw the movie and loved it. I loved it so much I saw it again very soon after the first viewing. It has exactly the right balance of elements - the acting is just right, the cast is just right, the cinematography is just right, the pacing, sound, story - everything has nearly perfect synergy. It gives you a chance to give a damn, whereas the LotR trilogy doesn't - it's too fast, and the pep speeches are too poetic and vague. When I watch the LotR movies, I keep thinking to myself "Why am I supposed to be rooting for this particular group? Why is Aragorn fucking the camera with every line? Why is Frodo always constipated or on the verge of tears even in the very beginning when he meets Gandalf on the road?"
One thing The Hobbit still does wrong is Gollum. He's too much of a clown, and the voice Andy Serkis gives him is incredibly hammy. Never liked it. I've always imagined Gollum as being a lot more creepy, with white eyes, and a slow, sinister voice. Do you remember the mutated vampire that is kept in a tomb in the movie Blade? Remember his voice? That's what Gollum's voice should sound like.

I have to say this is one of the most unique viewpoints I've ever heard about Jackson's LOTR and Hobbit films. I respect your opinion though, so we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. Maybe it's the genre itself that you don't care for, since the LOTR had such an epic, fantastical, almost mythological feel to it. The Hobbit, on the other hand, abandons most of that in place of a light-hearted, comical, whimsy tone. Which is kind of how the book was too. However, my problem is that

The Hobbit, on the other hand, abandons most of that in place of a light-hearted, comical, whimsy tone. Which is kind of how the book was too. However, my problem is that Jackson made it ridiculously video game-y. Physics is completely ignored as characters fall dozens of feet, slide down miles of tunnels, and go through an entire Mountain-Giant fight without so much as a scratch. The humor used is so childish. LOTR wasn't like this at all, so I've always felt a disconnect between the two. Almost as if they're in two different universes, and that really bothers me.

I argue that if you'd read the books, you'd see a lot of the faults in the Hobbit, especially how stretched out and poorly edited the movie is. But even without reading the book, it's apparent that it takes ages to move the story out of the Shire, the opening monologue showing the Dwarves backstory is completely misplaced (Wouldn't it have worked better if we were shown all that backstory during the dinner at Bilbo's house, when the Dwarves were actually explaining their quest to Bilbo?), and the fact that the movie goes unforgivable stretches of time without even focusing on the main character (The Hobbit, Bilbo obviously). Jackson turned The Hobbit into a story more about the Dwarves, Gandalf, Radaghast, Galadriel, the Necromancer, etc etc.

As for your complaints about the LOTR movies, I'd suggest watching the Extended Editions. It fleshes out the story, slows down the plot, and adds essential scenes which had to be cut out of the theatrical versions for time's sake. It doesn't get rid of any big speeches or the 'generic' medieval battles, but it definitely helps connect with the characters a little more. I've never heard anyone complain about the special effects though. When the trilogy came out 10 years ago, the effects were years ahead of its time, and it even holds up to today's movies. In fact, many of the things we see in present day movies wouldn't even be possible without the new effects used in LOTR. I don't see how one can complain about the special effects but not be bothered by the horrid overuse of terrible CGI in the Hobbit. Whereas in LOTR almost everything was actually built and made into life-sized sets and costumes and make-up, the Hobbit took the easy way out and made everything look like video-game CGI.

I can see how some of your points may make the LOTR a less enjoyable experience, but again I think this stems from the fact that the entire genre of epic fantasy/adventure may not be your cup of tea. Again, watch the Extended Editions of the LOTR if you haven't already. While longer, it's most definitely worth it. Personally I'll never understand how anyone can like the Hobbit more than LOTR, but that's why it's called an opinion. Definitely enjoyed having this chat with you though, hopefully my points make sense. Cheers!

It's been a while, so remind me how the origins of the Witch-King and Ringwraiths were re-written in the Hobbit movie.

As for the rest, I agree with some of your points. Radagast was an almost unwatchable mess. And the movie, on the whole, was solidly 30-45 minutes too long for what it covered.

According to the movie, the Witch-king and his ringwraiths died and were placed in tombs ages ago. But the Ringwraiths never died, in the books AND Jackson's previous movies. Aragorn explains to Frodo in the 1st movie that they're neither living nor dead. They were seduced by Sauron and the 9 rings he gave them, and they simply faded away over time into the Ringwraiths. This is established in both the movies and the books, but in order to make the Hobbit trilogy more suspenseful (with Radaghast

You need to see it in regular 2D and 24 FPS. Honestly, it looks and feels much better. I hate to say it...but it's true.

Not sure who you're replying to, but I did see it in the regular framerate (although it was in 3D, which is completely needless. 3D is terrible)...but that didn't change anything about the actual quality of the movie though.

I'm officially buzzed

I enjoyed THE HOBBIT, flawed as it was, and I'm excited to see Bilbo and the gang taking on the spiders and the elves of Mirkwood. I guess it's too much to hope for more Radagast?

I'm hoping the sequel is better because I wasn't really excited for the first Hobbit to come out.
