New TV spot for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug: watch now

“Our enemy is preparing for war”

 
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released another new TV spot, in which the severity of the situation facing Bilbo and company is made abundantly clear.
 
“We have been blind,” says Gandalf, ruefully. “And in our blindness, our enemy is preparing for war.” The venerable wizard generally knows the score, so we’d say the odds are stacking up against our heroes.
 
Indeed, there are still hordes of orcs and goblins to be dealt with, while Smaug himself lies in wait atop his vast pile of stolen treasure. But then, when was a good quest ever straightforward?
 
Take a look, below…



As Luke Evans’ Bard the Bowman points out, the Dwarves’ mission to retake their homeland may have dire consequences for the rest of Middle-earth, a timely reminder that not everyone is as sold on the quest as Thorin and chums.
 
Stakes are high, then. Directed by Peter 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. 

What do you think of the new spot? Tell us, below!

      How come they did LOTR 10 years ago and the CGI looks better then than now... have you noticed the Elfs running on the branches of trees? How fake they look... it's a downer... indeed...

      @ERDutra I think it's the higher framerate the Hobbit movies were filmed at. 60fps is typical of videogames not film and my pet theory is the higher framerate makes CGI look like it belongs in a game rather than in a film.

      I've watched this film in bit.ly/1azDcsA This film is very good, then you can watch for free download review about this movies From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug. Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, with Martin Freeman in the central role of Bilbo Baggins, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. The international ensemble cast is led by Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom as Legolas. The film also stars (in alphabetical order) John Bell, Manu Bennett, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Lawrence Makoare, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Mikael Persbrandt, and Aidan Turner.

Jackson also produced the film, together with Carolynne Cunningham, Zane Weiner and Fran Walsh. The executive producers are Alan Horn, Toby Emmerich, Ken Kamins and Carolyn Blackwood, with Philippa Boyens and Eileen Moran serving as co-producers.
