If the first part in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is anything to go by, then you crazy kids can’t get enough of your trip to Middle Earth. Which should bode well for Jackson’s second movie in his new spanking trilogy, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. It’s a wacky title, but when you consider that it’s about hobbits and dragons and orcs fighting for gold, it sort of makes sense, doesn’t it? Check out the new, full-length trailer for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”.
Oh, Smaug, you and your desolation.
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
Starring Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Luke Evans.
