A new trailer for the second Hobbit film, Desolation of Smaug has hit the web, and it includes a lot of new footage.
We get to hear Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug, some glimpses of Orlando Bloom’s Legolas and quite a bit more!
This one is a bit more serious than the first The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug trailer that came out a couple of months ago. We open with Bilbo greeting Smaug, the Dwarves meeting the Woodland Elves, Evangeline Lilly’s new character talking about a growing evil, and lots of Giant spiders. Moreover, it looks like this film is doing more legwork to set up the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy: there’s some good hints, and a blink and you miss it cameo of Sauron.
So far, this Hobbit trailer does a better job of getting us more interested watching the film, especially to check out the utterly incredible landscapes of Jackson’s Middle Earth.The Desolation of Smaug is due out on December 13th.
