The Desolation of Smaug — the Sneak Peek

It’s trailer! It’s a sneak peek! It’s a sneak-peek trailer! But definitely is not a trailer for a trailer! This long trailer may help whet your appetite for the second chapter in the four-film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Hobbit, dubbed The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

There’s less Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and a bit more Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) than in the last clip, so I guess it balances out the newbies. I think the quick-cutting in this clip was overdone; I feel like I barely glimpsed anything over the course of the three minutes because it all went by so quickly.

What do you think? Are you excited for this movie, or do you think squeezing four films out of one (epic) novel is a bit too much?

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens Dec. 13, which is actually much closer than you think! We’re already into November…

    • Or, perhaps, his dedication to wringing every last drop of money out of the book! 🙂
      Then again, Jackson is plenty rich, so maybe his motives are more pure than that. But either way, he clearly loves the Tolkeinverse.


      • His is an odd history. I was a fan of his looooong ago, when he made Meet the Feebles, which has to be one of the greatest films ever made. Never in my wildest dreams could i have predicted him ever making money, let alone captaining the Tolkein universe.


Oh, yeah? Sez you!
