The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Good news everyone! There’s a new banner and trailer for the upcoming second Hobbit film _The Desolation of Smaug_! Let’s take a look!

First up, here’s the banner that dropped on twitter yesteday:

The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug

Shiny right? Look at all the cobwebs. Just sayin’. And here’s the trailer:

Ok, I’m worried that this is going to fall under the “good but not great” area that An Unexpected Journey did but given this years crop of tentpole movies? That’s actually not a bad thing. I think also there’s one thing we can agree on Benedict Cumberbatch may be the perfect choice for Smaug’s voice. Holy chilling Batman.

Also, Gandalf talking about “we’ve been blind and our enemy is returned”, that’s clearly talking about The Necromancer and not the orcs that are in the next shot, right? I mean, they are working pretty hard to make these films more prequel-y than the original book so that only makes sense.

What do you guys think??
