Latest Trailer For The Desolation Of Smaug
And a new production diary goes online

With the release of the film itself now just over a month away, the promotional campaign for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has hit frenzy mode. We’ve just had a batch of new posters released for the film, and now here comes the latest trailer, full of fresh moments. 

 

This new look at the film certainly keeps up both the atmospheric spookiness of Smaug’s lair, the spider dwellings and the other dark corners of Middle-earth we continue to explore. Also featured? Lots of chances for Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and new character Tauriel (Evangeline Lily) to shine, plus Richard Armitage getting plenty of hero moments as Thorin. For those of you who want more of Luke Evans and his native Welsh accent as Bard, he’s here too.

The trailer, along with a new production diary that focuses on the last sprint of filming to grab remaining “pick-up” shots (and features Ian McKellen swearing!), premiered as part of a big Hobbit fan event that was held simultaneously in cities such as London, Los Angeles, New York, Mexico City and Wellington, New Zealand.

You can see the truncated version of the live broadcast below (skip to 21 minutes in to see the blog), which stops just before audiences at the physical events got to see around 20 minutes of footage. Empire was present at the London location and will have a full report up as soon as it’s written.

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is out on December 13. For much more on the film, including our exclusive set visit and four different covers, check out the current issue of Empire, available in shops and in various digital formats now.
