The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released a new TV spot online, putting the spotlight on Evangeline Lilly’s newcomer, Tauriel.
The Elven warrior gets to trade trash-talk with an unseen foe here, before unleashing cold steel on a host of orcs and goblins.
She even shows up Legolas for a whingeing appeaser when she rightly tells him that the battle against Smaug is not one their people can afford to turn a blind eye to.
Take a look at the new spot, below…
It’s nice to see Lilly picking up Liv Tyler’s mantel here, combining ethereal beauty with steely determination to crowd-pleasing effect. We like.
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.
