Latest TV Spot For The Desolation Of Smaug
With some fresh footage (but still not much Smaug)

With the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug less than a month away now, the blitz of ads both big and small is reaching its peak. We’ve had various trailers, and the TV spots have been running for a while. Here comes another, featuring a few fresh bits of footage and even a couple of glimpses of the dragon Smaug himself (don’t go expecting to see his face, though…)

As seems usual for the campaign, we watch Martin Freeman’s Bilbo trying to butter the giant reptile up while sneaking around his treasure-filled lair. “The darkness is coming,” is all he gets in reply on this particular trailer. Which, if you had a giant dragon talking to you, is probably not what you’d want him to say.

The film continues Bilbo and the dwarf company’s journey to the Smaug-ruled ruins of Erebor as our pint-sized heroes (and Ian McKellen’s Gandalf) meet new potential allies and continue to flee from those nasty Orc villains.

Obviously we’ve met the main gang, so the fun here will be encountering new – and new / old friends – such as Evangeline Lilly’s warrior elf Tauriel, Lee Pace's Elvenking Thranduil and Orlando Bloom’s Legolas.

With the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch (Smaug himself), Aidan Turner, Billy Connolly, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Luke Evans, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens and Stephen Fry also in the cast, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is out on December 13.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,,,Rush64.COM More
