Hard to believe that Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is almost upon us. Wasn’t it just last year that we got “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”? Oh right, it WAS last year. Check out the very first trailer for the second part in Jackson’s new Middle Earth trilogy, which finds Bilbo and his company of dwarfs in even more trouble. Fortunately for them, Orlando Bloom’s Legolas is there to lend a hand (and an arrow or a dozen), though he seems very hesitant in this one.
We also get our first looks at Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman and Evangeline Lilly as the spitfire Elf Tauriel.
The Dwarfs, Bilbo and Gandalf have successfully escaped the misty mountains, but BIlbo has gained the one ring. They all continue their journey to get their gold back off the Dragon, Smaug.
Starring Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Billy Connolly, Evangeline Lilly, Andy Serkis, Luke Evans, Christopher Lee, and Aidan Turner.
The journey continues this December 13, 2013.
