The brand new Hobbit trailer just hit online and this trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has a ton of action in the trailer, a lot more than expected. Also showcased pretty good in the trailer is the return of Legolas (Orlando Bloom) as he informs a group of dwarfs that he isn’t above killing them. Evangeline Lilly also shows up in this trailer as Tauriel, an elf created specifically for this movie trilogy.
We also get a good look at the dragon Smaug (voiced by Star Trek Into Darkness’ Benedict Cumberbatch), as he towers over Bilbo Baggins at the very end of the new Hobbit trailer in an awesome moment.
The Desolation of Smaug opens Dec. 13 and follows Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins, 13 dwarves and Gandalf in their quest to fight the dragon Smaug. The first film, “An Unexpected Journey,” grossed $1.02 billion worldwide after its December 2012 U.S. release, and the third film “The Hobbit: There And Back Again” will open on Dec. 17, 2014.
