Trailer for The Hobbit Part 2: The Desolation of Smaug
All of my most ardent Tolkien-fan friends are both irritated that Peter Jackson has turned his film adaptation of The Hobbit into another three-part epic. It was reasonable with The Lord of The Rings (which was a three-book series), but critics are suggesting he’s really milking it for all it’s worth here. That said, after the first installation (An Unexpected Journey) last year, there is excitement in the air to see what Jackson can do with the second part, especially in regards to Smaug, the story’s famed grumpy and jewel-crusted dragon. Here is a peek at the trailer.
The Desolation of Smaug opens in North American theaters on December 13th.
