First Trailer for The Desolation of Smaug

It’s here!

The first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!

We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since the credits rolled for An Unexpected Journey and now, at last, it’s here.

What are you most wanting to see? Glimpses of the barrel ride? The elves? Tauriel? Laketown?  The treasure?

Oh Smaug!  It has to be Smaug!

Here at Middle-earth News we’re so excited to be able to bring you this first trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug which will be released in cinemas on 13 December 2013.  The final part of  The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit:There and Back Again, will be released a year later on 17 December 2014.

The cast includes Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Richard Armitage as Thorin, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, Luke Evans as Bard, Stephen Fry as The Master of Laketown, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug.

Now – shall we watch it again?

    “When did we allow evil to become stronger than us”? Ugh. What a stupid line. Peter Jackson and co. wouldn’t know the nature of evil if it bit them on the nose.
