It’s been almost a year since the first part of The Hobbit was released and now Warner Bros. is gearing up for the fall onslaught of marketing for the next installment with The Desolation of Smaug. We’ve gotten some trailer material before with some good shots of Smaug as well, and this one expands on it a bit with more dialogue, more scenes in general and a larger bit of the overall narrative. The film is set to land on December 13th in theaters.
Plot concept: 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.
