The Trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is now online. I’m excited for the movie, but the trailer left me a little wanting. We get the full cast of characters (Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin, Legolas, Tauriel and Smaug among others) but I felt the whole thing was too action-packed and not as story-driven as I would’ve liked it to have been.
Synopsis: The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
