The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Brand New Trailer

I really wasn't a fan of the most recent Hobbit movie -- I legitimately fell asleep in the cinema during it. I woke back up when everyone started surfing down the hill for some reason. I think that scene really needed the context of my being awake for the preceding ten minutes.

The best part of this trailer? Smaug speaks! Benedict Cumberbatch is doing the voice and he has a very good voice.

    I loved all the bits from the book and disliked all the bits they added in. It's making me very lukewarm about the next movie and it looks like the story will be almost finished at the end of it, so it's making me very uninterested in the third, which I already thought was too much.
    This trailer has interested me more, but I'm not sure if I'll go see it.

      Same. That said, I must be a glutton for punishment because I'm getting the extended versions when they are available. :-P

      I bought the first film and haven't yet gotten around to watching it. It's been a good 10+ years since I've even read The Hobbit so I may have forgotten. But it seems to me as if they are trying to action it up a bit in order to put it on par with Lord of the Rings and make it more exciting by adding favourite characters such as Legolas.

    The third film will be the whole Battle of Five Armies thing

    I love the book, but the first film left me disappointed in a variety of ways. The most memorable moments were all memorable for the wrong reasons. And it was boring in large sections.

    Thoughts after the trailer - a) Legolas wasn't in The Hobbit.. but oh well.
    b) Who's the gorgeous redhead?
    c) Looks better.. god I hope so.

    Edit: NM it's Evangeline Lilly.. should have known.
