I can’t go anywhere without seeing an ad for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” these days. Heck, I was in the bathroom in my house and … Okay, probably not there. But definitely whenever I turn on the TV, there it is, a hobbit trying to steal a dragon’s gold. I mean, dude, it’s a dragon. That can blow fire. You should probably not try to steal its gold. Food for thought.
Anyhoo. Check out 11 new images from the Smaug-tastic “Desolation of Smaug”. Curiously enough, not a single look at Smaug. Go figure. (I guess it’s not so Smaug-tastic, after all…)
Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all—a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself—the Dragon Smaug.
Starring Starring: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Luke Evans.
