Must Watch: Second Full 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Trailer
"I will not risk this quest for the life of one burglar." Warner Bros has debuted the second epic full-length trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second movie in the trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel. Martin Freeman returns as Bilbo Baggins, along with Ian McKellan as Gandalf, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield and the rest of the dwarves. We finally get a glimpse at Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman in the footage, Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom as elves, and an appearance by Smaug the Dragon of course, plus the Mirkwood spiders (ahh!). I'm still in love with this world and can't wait to see the story continue on and expand. This looks as exciting as I was hoping. Enjoy!
Watch the second trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, direct from WB:
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.
