Bilbo Meets Smaug in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' TV Spot
Well hello there, Smaug the Stupendous. Warner Bros has unveiled a new TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, now only a few more weeks away from hitting theaters. This new spot focuses mostly on Smaug the Dragon, showing a few scenes where Bilbo (played by Martin Freeman) encounters the fire-breathing beast deep inside the gold-filled halls of Mt. Erebor. As expected they're still saving the complete reveal of Smaug for the movie itself, but this is a rather exciting TV spot to keep fans excited these last few weeks. Orlando Bloom and Richard Armitage show up briefly in this footage, too.
Here's the latest Smaug TV spot for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, via WB's YouTube:
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: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.
