Watch: 'The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug' Trailer in LEGO Form
There are some hardcore LEGO enthusiasts out there who always take to the Internet to recreate movie trailers with LEGO bricks (not to mention the trailer for The LEGO Movie coming next year), and quite an impressive piece of work as emerged for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The first trailer for the second part of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of the single J.R.R. Tolkien book arrived earlier this summer, and this LEGO creation really does a masterful job of recreating it. Obviously, to make it look perfect, not all of the elements are LEGO pieces, but a large majority come from various playsets. Watch!
And here's another video with a comparison of the two Desolation of Smaug trailers next to each other:
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.
