Some fans of The Hobbit might remember that last year, this writer went out to Denny's corporate headquarters to check out a special cross-promotion event between Denny's and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. We highlighted the Middle-Earth themed menu after tasting each of the items that reference Peter Jackson's fantasy blockbuster. This year, the restaurant is doing the same thing for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and they've just unveiled an exclusive featurette that looks at the house of Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt), where our heroes have to hide out momentarily after being chased. There's some behind the scenes footage and more in this cool featurette worth checking out. Watch below!
Here's the new featurette from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug via Denny's:

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.
