Latest TV Spot for 'The Hobbit' Features a Quick Glimpse of Smaug
"That's home... You don't have one, it was taken from you." Come out, come out wherever you are! Though we may not see much of him in the first movie, there's a glimpse of Smaug the dragon in the latest TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, tip via SlashFilm. If you've been wondering whether or not this adaptation would live up to Lord of the Rings and deliver on epic fantasy action like that trilogy did, this spot should be enough to convince you. Martin Freeman stars as Bilbo on an adventure to reclaim Erebor. Blink and you'll miss it - Smaug is seen early on attacking a town (more shots here). Enjoy!

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 14th.
