First Trailer for Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG – Plus 8 New Images & Official Synopsis
Here you have it, the first trailer for part two of director Peter Jackson‘s second Middle Earth trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, has been released online. The second film in the trilogy continues the perilous journey of Bilbo, Gandolf, and the Dwarves as they try and reclaim their gold from the terrible dragon, Smaug. The trailer is visually impressive – I had a chance to see it in front of a Man of Steel screening tonight, wow – and gives us our first look at the return of Orlando Bloom and newcomers Evangeline Lilly and Luke Evans in action. “But we haven’t even seen the dragon yet,” you say – until now. While it’s only for a few seconds, the trailer gives us our first glimpse at the terrible Smaug, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch – unfortunately we don’t get any dialogue. Along with the new trailer are eight brand new high-res images taken from the trailer, and the film’s synopsis. Hit the jump to take a look!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is directed by Peter Jackson and stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Stephen Fry, Orlando Bloom, Richard Armitage, and Benedict Cumberbatch and hits theaters in 3D and IMAX on December 13th, 2013.
