Two new television promos for Peter Jackson’s second film in his “Hobbit” trilogy highlight the action — and rivalries — Bilbo and company encounter as they march toward Lonely Mountain
Smaug, the giant dragon threat in Peter Jackson’s next “Hobbit” movie, is so massive that his movement can be mistaken for an earthquake.
The latest look at the upcoming Warner Bros. release features the band of dwarves looking for the entrance into their old stomping ground, Lonely Mountain, when they feel the ground start to shake beneath their feet.
“Was that an earthquake?” a member of the dragon-slaying party asks.
“That…was a dragon,” Balin (Ken Stott) answers.
While Bilbo (Martin Freeman) keeps Thorin (Richard Armitage) company as he attempts to reclaim his people’s mountain kingdom, Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) is about to walk into a trap, and Legolas (Orlando Bloom) joins his elf crush, Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) in a fight he doesn’t really want to fight.
“The Desolation of Smaug,” which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the menacing voice of the title monster, arrives in theaters Dec. 13.
