'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Trailer: More Walking, More Dragon
The 48fps camera of time has spiraled its way around a too-picturesque mountain pass once again, bringing with it a new marketing season for Peter Jackson's never-ending Tolkien films. As such, here's the first trailer for The Desolation of Smaug, with its many CGI creatures, weirdly-fluid elves new and old, and huge setpieces that will later be the basis of a theme park's "Bilbo's Gold Slide" and "Dwarven Barrel Splash!" Plus, there's that dragon that will sound like Benedict Cumberbatch. What more could you want in a Hobbit adaptation? Besides brevity.
