Okay ladies and gentlemen, this is it. We’ve all been waiting for the release of the second installment of The Hobbit entitled Desolation of Smaug and the trailers are just more icing on the cake. After all, none of us can wait to see just what Bilbo Baggins will get himself into next. With the release of the first trailer to the up and coming Desolation of Smaug, it seems that fans just can’t wait for what’s next for Bilbo and his companions. And after the festivities, Peter Jackson and Wingnut films now bring us this wonderful movie poster of Desolation of Smaug that’s sure to leave us eager to see the film once it rolls around this December.
The trailer itself contains a lot of scenes that further tantalizes audiences with its fast scenes and mesmerizing action. First we’re treated to a good view of Middle Earth with its impressive vistas such as its snow-capped peaks, vast woodlands and great lakes. At the same time, we are treated to the voice of Thranduil, the elf lord who is portrayed by Lee Pace, as he narrates to us the difficulties that the company of Bilbo and the dwarves will have to face on their quest to reclaim Erebor. We are given a show of Mirkwood, home of the wood elves, as the company struggle through its dangers and encounter the graceful elves that populates the great woodland.
In the meantime, we also get to meet a good amount of the cast that we’re going to meet in Desolation of Smaug such as the return of Legolas, played by Orlando Bloom and the introduction of female elf guard Tauriel. Later we also get to see Luke Evans as he portrays the brave town guard Bard and his own worries regarding the dragon Smaug. And last but not least, we are treated to Bilbo finding his way into Smaug’s hoard of treasure and finally encountering the Wicked Wyrm himself. It is all too bad that Smaug doesn’t speak as there are those who long to hear the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon.
Whatever the case, Peter Jackson’s latest movie poster for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is proving to be every bit as tantalizing as the film trailer with the same promise of both danger and mystery. And yes, I’m sure that plenty of us are waiting for Bilbo to go through that big door and give us a better view of what’s inside…
