Hey, fans of movie images, check it out, Warner Bros. has released a new batch of pics from Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”, which is set to smaug in your popcorn next week. I know, right? Where has all the time gone? Of course, if you own a TV, then you probably already saw the gazillion commercials for the movie that airs pretty much around the clock on every channel. Them’s big studio Hollywood PR money, boys!

Anyhoo. Check out the images, check it outers.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. 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.
