Warner Bros. has just released a brand new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
This trailer gives us a taste of the conversation between Bilbo and Smaug, so avoid watching past the 1:53 mark it if you want to keep Smaug’s voice a surprise. I will say, though, that Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice is perfect and gave me goosebumps.
From what I see in this trailer the sequence in the dragon’s lair has a solid chance of topping the incredible “Riddles in the Dark” scene from An Unexpected Journey. The Bilbo/Smaug scenes are iconic and, for many fans, they’re the best part of the book. So I expect Peter Jackson to put tremendous care into making them perfect.
Check out the trailer below, or, if you want to watch it in HD, head over to thehobbit.com and choose 720P/1080P.
I hope we get to see an HFR version of this trailer soon!
