The first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is here!
And boy is Smaug Desolated (I'm not really sure what that means)!
Take a look:
The film marks the second in the trilogy based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Martin Freeman returns as Bilbo, with Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Gray, as they travel with the Dwarves through the Mirkwood, the dark forest.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Evangeline Lilly, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Lee Pace, Aidan Turner, Billy Connolly, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis also star.
After Smaug, we still have one more film, There and Back Again, which is a surprising feat given the book's brevity.
The Desolation of Smaug premieres December 13, with There and Back Again coming out December 17, 2014.
