The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Teaser Trailer Release Date December 11 2013


Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Release Date  December 11, 2013 (France, Belgium)

The trailer runs for 2:10 of action packed montages.  It begins with an expansive pan of prime New Zealand landscape, with a voice over from Tranduil (the other blonde elf who is not Orlando Bloom) backed by haunting ethereal vocals. 

"Where does your journey end? You seek that which would bestow upon you the right to rule." Tranduil proclaims in his kingliest elf voice.

More scenery abounds with CGI villages and mysterious shrouds of fog.  "The quest to reclaim a homeland and slay a dragon."  continues Tranduil.  Followed by a close up of Thorin dwarf-king, whom Tranduil is talking to.  Which is where we left off our dwarves and hobbit previously.

Cut to a several actions scenes including a barrel escape which consists of dwarves/hobbits in said barrels plummeting into water. Juxtaposed by a peaceful scene of vibrant blue butterflies floating around Bilbo who you know, is just hanging out at the top of a tree. Chilling out.

Beyond Darkness is displayed in gold capital letters.

Orlando Bloom's Legolas pointing an arrow at the dwarf collective, specifically Thorin.
"Do not think I won’t kill you, dwarf." scowls Legolas, who appears to have woken up on the wrong side of bed. Maybe it took Legolas longer then usual to get his hair straightening iron to work on his elven locks that morning, who knows why he's so angry?

"When did we allow evil to become stronger than us?" half whispers Tauriel,  the made-up elf warrior played by Evangeline Lilly. Later on while standing on the edge of a rocky outcrop (more beautiful New Zealand scenery) she responds to Legolas statement "It is not our fight" with "It is our fight."  Presumably there will be more of a follow-up argument in the movie.

Cue a hobbit sliding down a pile of cold coins and other treasures. Weeeee! Cut to Radagast (know to the masses as that weird wizard who had a rabbit driven sled), peering over Gandalf's shoulder asking "What if it's a trap?"
Gandalf responds firmly "It’s undoubtedly a trap."  Staff in his left hand, he unsheathes a sword with his right.

Beyond Desolation is displayed in gold capital letters.

Tranduil (the elf kingy) proclaims "Such is the nature of evil, in time all foul things come forth". True, like when you don’t clean the bathroom sink.

Cue orc Azog (with paleness which indicates a vitamin D deficiency) appearing between the turrets of castle in time for the end of that sentence. He growls.  Grrrr.
Cut to next scene which has Bilbo freaking out hiding behind a tree covered in cobwebs as a giant spider creeps behind him

Lies the Greatest Danger of All is displayed in gold capital letters.

Bard the Bowman, played by Luke Even's warns  Thorin "If you awaken that beast, you will destroy us all."
Cut to what looks to be Gandalf having a brawl with Saruman.
Next Legolas and Tauriel fighting miscelaneous goblins.
Cue a loud boom and one of the dwarves asking "Was that an earthquake?"
To which the ominous response is "That my lad...was a dragon."

The Hobbit appears in Gold Letters.

The dragon Smaug's head makes an appearance staring down Bilbo.

“The Desolation of Smaug” will be in theaters December 13th and is the second part in the series, following on from “An Unexpected Journey."
