The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 656 title

While we won't actually have the chance to really check out what Peter Jackson and actor Benedict Cumberbatch have done with Smaug until the second film in the new trilogy at the very least, this TV spot does give audiences the flashiest of glimpses at his flaming form as it (presumably) descends upon the lakeside town of Dale.

And not only that - this TV spot also gives several glimpses of other action sequences thus far mostly unexplored in the advertising we've seen thus far, including the Warg battle in the woods and what might even possibly be the Battle of Five Armies.  I could also be wrong, so if you have a better inkling as to what action is being shown off here then don't hesitate to strike back below and let me know!

Eleven days (Elven days?) until we stop writing about THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and move on to writing about THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think that THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY has done too much advertising?

Smaug apparently has a cameo in the first film, where Gandalf is explaining to Bilbo what happened to the dwarven home city there's a flashback to Smaug sacking Erebor. I'm pretty sure that's what's being shown in this teaser.

Never enough Hobbit!

Yes, the Smaug appearance is a flashback where Thorin and the other dwarves explain what happened at the Lonely Mountain. Not sure about the battle scene; I suspect it may be a flashback to the story of Gondolin to explain Gandalf's sword Glamdring, Thorin's sword Orcrist and Bilbo's Sting. Have I mentioned I'm a Hobbit fanboy? ;)
