The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released yet another TV spot online (that’s seven and counting…), in which Bilbo steels himself for a face-off with the titular dragon.
Peter Jackson has been teasing his big bad a little more in recent spots, and while this latest offering doesn’t show much of him on screen, his presence is very much felt.
Bilbo does a pretty good job of holding his nerve here, but when Smaug hisses, “the darkness is coming”… well, we certainly felt a shiver up the spine.
Take a look at the new spot, below:
It seems as though Benedict Cumberbatch may just be the ace in Jackson’s pack here, delivering Smaug’s dialogue with genuine menace. If the first film was lacking a truly formidable villain, there’s no danger of that here…
Directed by Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will open in the UK on 13 December 2013.
