Last night Warner Bros. released a sneak peek of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug on the Internet. The sneak peek, which is really a trailer in its own right, starts off with Bard the Bowman reciting part of the  poem ‘The King Beneath The Mountain’ and runs about three minutes and contains footage not yet seen before.

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13.

The Latest ‘The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug’ Trailer Revealed!

The latest trailer for the next installment of The Hobbit, ‘Desolation of Smaug,’ has hit the Internet and it’s good!

The trailer hints that things will be heating up, and not just because of the dragon Smaug. Some of the things teased at in this trailer are: Thorin obsessed with reclaiming the mountain and his birthright, the elven king Thranduil possibly wanting some of the the dwarves treasure himself, Legolas overly fond of Tauriel with Thranduil disapproving, Bard arguing against helping the dwarves, and last but not least hearing the dragon Smaug’s voice for the first time! This next installment looks like it will be very action packed.

Desolation of Smaug trailer released!

Desolation of Smaug title

Sorry for the lack of posting. It has taken the release of the trailer for the second Hobbit movie to push me back into blogging – and that’s a good thing!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will open in theaters on December 13 of this year, and today the official first trailer for the film has been released.

We are once again transported to Middle-earth and meet back up with our favorite adventurers as they continue on towards the Lonely Mountain – Erebor.

In the trailer we get our first glimpses of Thranduil’s Halls and Evangeline Lily as elf warrior Tauriel. Wizards Gandalf and Radagast venture on towards Dol Guldur, and the dwarves escape from the Mirkwood elves in barrels. Another scene shows the Mirkwood elves defending their home from the white orc Azog. And we also get to see very brief shots of Beorn in bear form, and lastly – but certainly not least – Smaug!

Here are a few screen shots, mostly of the elvish scenes, with more to follow, and the trailer.
