Here is a new trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:
I’m not entirely sold on Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug. Why go to the trouble of hiring Cumberbatch if his dulcet tones are going to be electronically manipulated and distorted? It’s barely recognizable as Cumberbatch. If you’re not a fanboy or “Cumber-bitch,” would you honestly recognize that dragon’s voice as his?
TH:TDOS is in theaters Dec. 13.
