First Look: Evangeline Lilly Draws a Bow as Tauriel in 'The Hobbit'
Ohhh right, there's even more Hobbit movies on the way? Yep. They're ringing the reminder bell loud. I've received confirmation that the first trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is playing in front of Man of Steel, which means the hype will begin again this summer. The first official photo of cast newcomer Evangeline Lilly playing Tauriel has finally hit, giving us a good look at the new Middle Earth elven character with bright red hair. "Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard. She's a Sylvan Elf… She will definitely have a love story," Lilly explains. It may not be Legolas, but who will remain a secret for now.
Here's the new photo from EW.com. "She's slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn't hesitate to kill."
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.
