The Desolation of Smaug

What lies within... As promised, Hobbit Mania is returning full-force this week with the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second movie in Peter Jackson's ongoing trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's book. To kick things off, Warner Bros has revealed the first poster for The Desolation of Smaug, showing Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins standing in front of the entrance to the Lonely Mountain, or Erebor, where encounters the dragon Smaug. Quite a tease, which makes me wonder if it's missing a tagline. Does everyone know what's inside this cave? Whatever the case, I'm excited for the battle we're going to see.

Here's the very first poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, debuted on their Facebook via AICN:

First The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Poster

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.

The hobbit was by far the worst movie of last year. Its 48fps did nothing. The CG was laughable at times. The story was thin. The book is so short. This is obviously greedy studio work.

I suspect DOS will be the best of the three.

Worse than "That's My Boy", "Battleship", "Taken 2", "Stolen", "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" and "Piranha 3DD"?

I'm sorry but this is either a troll comment or you're a fucking idiot.

So another movie called The Hobbit that's not about a hobbit. Watched it twice now. Pretty disappointing. Hopefully the next will be better but the 3 film decision is so beyond self-indulgent that it's suffocated the material.

The only thing I can really agree with you about is the bad CG. Hopefully that won't be an issue with the other two since they've had more time in post. I'm usually a fan of movies having more than one part, even three hours is a bit cramped depending on the material.

Dude is obviously trying to get a reaction from people.

I fucking love The Hobbit, maybe even more than the original trilogy.

I can already hear some big, bassy drums.

There are 34 minutes of the hobbit where bilbo doesn't have a single line.

I like it.

It looks so much like the Alan Lee LOTR/Hobbit paintings. I love it.

What you mean? I didnt like the movie. Is there a problem with it?

Look, let's have some intellectual honesty here. I am not attacking you or saying anything negative to towards you as a person. All I am saying is that your comment used a lot of hyperbole and maybe it is true, but maybe you were just trying to get others, like my friend Nielsen700, to react. If you did in fact believe it to be "the worst movie of last year" then fair enough, I was wrong, and good day, sir.

Nice!

LOTR and this will be classical epic movies when my grandchildren/children get to watch it. Like Clash of the Titans (old one obviously), Sinbad...etc.

if you don't know who's inside that door, then you've never read a book in your life

Yeaaaah. Woooohooo. Yeaaaah Woooohoooooo. Yeaaaaaahhhhh. Woooooohoooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Can't wait.

It's one thing to say you didn't like the movie- and then to list its shortcomings- and to say that it was by far the worst movie of last year. I think it was a fair question, asking if you only saw 5 movies last year. IMO, there were far worse films. Now may be you meant quality versus the fanboy hype built up. I still don't think it comes close to being the terrible film you portray it as. Personally, I thought the 48FPS added so much more to the film.

Not sure how they matters.

Bilbo is so scared to go in he had to take a leak.

I gave 'The Hobbit' a 8/10, film wise. I was quite flawed to be fair...... BUT THAT POSTER. I ALMOST SHIT IN EXCITEMENT. DAMMIT PETER.

you're an idiot.

ryan, the problem is why would you come into a thread about a movie that's the follow-up to a movie you hated????

DianeT on Jun 10, 2013

Still should have been two movies. But money talks...

cobrazombie on Jun 11, 2013

The movie is called The Hobbit. One would presume, like the book, that the Hobbit would be the main character viewpoint and would have a developed screen prescence.

earthlingdave on Jun 11, 2013

Jeepers. No need to get mean. Just my opinion. I think an almost 9 hour trilogy of the hobbit doesn't serve the story. You don't think it's over-long based on the source material?
