First trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug features lots of leaping and a peek at the dragon
The first trailer for THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG has arrived and features more of the grand scale adventure you've come to expect from Peter Jackson. For the second part of this journey we're introduced to a number of new (and returning) characters, including Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), and a closer look at the titular Smaug, minus the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch. The first film in the new trilogy underwhelmed some, but was still a massive hit and this looks to follow the same model. Personally, I loved first entry and am excited as hell to see this, but I know some are a little more leery.
Here's the 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 adventures 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.
THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAG, starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Richard Armitage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Lilly Evangeline, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Lee Pace, Elijah Wood, Stephen Fry, Billy Connelly, and Andy Serkis, continues the journey on December 13, 2013.
