The new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is now online. Epic. Enjoy.
Woooooowwwwww….my mind…blow up
I simply couldn’t help the smiles that came to my face…I wish i was the ‘scream-and-blow-up-with-awsomeness-’ kind of fan. But i really do blow up inside….trust me.
Really?? I don’t. I’m stand up and scream and aplause. It’s funny, i know..more if i had 30 years old and male XDDD But everyone is different…and everyone loves the Peter Jackson work here
I just started screaming and then I could’t hear it because i was screaming so loud!!!! 72 days left here!!!! I can’t wait!!!!
Does anyone watch lord of the rings? All the damn characters have blue eyes? I unlike anyone else rembers this fact
I can’t wait also!!!! But question…. Did anyone else notice that Legolas’s eyes are BLUE!!!!! XP!!!! Sorry but his eyes are brown. I checked. How can his eyes change from blue to brown. I’m sorry. THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN!!!! Please change it!!!! It’s gonna bother me for the movie!!!! He is the most amazing character ever and doesn’t have blue eyes! It is a fact! He looks really strange!!! Sorry everyone for freaking out on you but I am annoyed right now….
Yeah, i notice that. Legolas sure looks weird with the blue eyes. Looks kind of “evil” XD
LOL! Agreed… But Legolas is my favorite character and so he always looks amazing! XD!
Truly amazing! Can’t wait for the movie!
This will be the best film of the year hands down
I can’t agree more…. :’)
COULNDT AGREE MORE!! Even better than the first for sure!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
Please stop this. Quit adding nonexistent characters and stories to these movies. And quit with this white orc stuff. He was dead long ago.
Got on to make a comment about how we are going to get some complaints about new trailer. Nonexistent love stories between nonexistent characters you guys are going to have a hayday with this!!!! Pretty funny to see you guys get worked up.
It goes against the entire essence of The Hobbit! The Hobbit was not some major action/adventure book. It was a non-action adventure book, that did NOT have Tauriel, Legolas, Azog and Thorin Oakenshield never threatened Bilbo Baggins.
PS: Thorin Oakenshield dies in the third movie!
Where’s the problem with the rewriting a part of the story? Tolkien made it himself when he rewrote the Arthurian Legend (“The Fall of Arthur”), couldn’t even complain… The LOTR trilogy was hard to make an adaptation because of the cuts that leave the spectator (who had read the books) with the impression of taking constant shortcuts. Okay, the white orc, okay Legolas in love (hi laaaaaadies!), but I’im personnaly very glad of seeing more of Radagast and it will be a great movie.
Has anyone here even read J.R. Tolkien? Anyone who would accept a rewrite of ANY of the trilogy is showing an unacceptable disrespect to an iconic author. ANYONE saying this and any subsequent revision is ANYTHING but spitting in Tolkiens face is an IDIOT. READ THE TRILOGY!!
I’ve read the book, and i loved it!!!! I’ve accepted the changes they have made, and i understand. I’m not trying to change you opinion, i’m just telling you mine.
I know what you’re saying. I absolutely love The Hobbit book, but even though I am very picky about movies following their books, I’m actually okay with the characters Tauriel and Azog. Someone once said in the behind the scenes of LOTR,(can’t remember which person) that the real story is untouchable. A few changes here and there won’t hurt the story that much (unless of course that movie is a Lightning Thief film.)
I agree. Though thankfully to the best of my knowledge Mr. Jackson has denied any romance between Tariel and Legolas
AMAZING! I can’t wait to see it at the movies; such a pity it will be dubbed in italian… My God, those voices…Sigh!
Are there no movie theaters with original soundtrack in your area in Italy? Such a pity… I couldn’t watch the movie, even more for the first time, in a dubbed version. OMG how i can hate the french version, especially for Gandalf, who seemed to be suffering throatache in LOTR, and inexistent in the Hobbit.
Unfortunately, not im my home town (Cagliari). The italian actors are very good but their voices cannot replace Sir Ian or RA ones. And, for worst, the italian actor who dubbed Gandalf in LOTR has passed away months ago, (he had a very Gandalf similar voice) so try to immagine Gandalf with a new strange voice. Awkard, isn’t it?
I will have to wait for the dvd to come!
asfghjkl!!!!!!!! Massive fangirl right here guys! OMG!!!!! Can’t even express how this made me feel… so I watched 3 times before making this comment, going back to watch it some more now
Same here Scorch!!!! I cannot contain my excitement! This made me happy the rest of the day. Everyone that I met yesterday I was contently asking, “Have you seen the new Hobbit trailer.” It was fun to fangirl!!!! And I am so mad that Legolas is going to have a love interest to whats her face!!!! UGGGG! He is my favorite!!!!! Please don’t do that!!!! Even still it shall be a great movie.
Same here LOTRCRAZY!! All day I’ve been saying: OMG have you seen the new trailer?!?!?!? And the best part was that people shared my fangirling I’m a little mad too, he’s my favourite as well and I’m ginger so I sooooo badly wish Tauril was me! I agree about your last sentence Side note, my name on this site used to be the same as yours but then I changed it to my nickname instead.
Really?!?!?! That’s so cooleo! And the reason I am annoyed is because it is messing up my fan fiction!!!! I had Legolas and my character Nellas Eloneth fall in love!!!! POOOOO!!!! Well I guess I shall just have to except it and change my fan fiction. I LOVE Fangirling with about anybody that I walk by!!! It is so funny how much LOTR people have in common outside of LOTR.
‘The director has noted that Tauriel is not romantically linked to Orlando Bloom’s Legolas, who will also appear in “The Hobbit.”’
Hahaha gotta love a bit of the fan fic Same with me for the fangirling!
I know right! It’s so cool! And it links us in so many ways!! Thumbs up to spreading the community
But it seems that In the Trailer that he will fall in love with her. It just is really confusing…. :/
I know, all of my friends are so confused as well… :/ oh well, guess we gotta wait and find out
Yeah. I also realized that Tauriel is just like my character Nellas. I thought that my character would shoot arrows, wear clothes similar to Legolas, would be a girl, and even when I saw her hair it is the exact same thing I was going to do with my hair for the midnight premiere! (I am going to by Nellas for the midnight premiere but people might think that i am Tauriel. :\ ) I am settling on the thought that Peter Jackson just snuck into my house one night and stole my ideas for her and decided to put her in the movie. So now i like her a little more.
He he! Same here!
it’s outrageously great!!
I was on Skype with my best fiend when I watched it for the first time… she thinks i’m crazy now.. although she knew that already… I was almost crying and afterwards I couldn’t stop laughing! I just can’t wait for it to come out! although i’m not a fan of the white orc and that new elvish girl, I can’t wait to revisit middle earth again.. I guess it’ll be epic!
greats from Belgium!! xxxxx
Got a long list of movies that came out this year that fell short of my expectations. Hobbit DOS will not! Its like Captain Crunch it never disapoints. Quit complaining about the fluff. This movie will be great!! Thanks to the cast a crew you guys are terrific!
just so people (who havn’t read the book) can enjoy the films. Don’t read the Hobbit yet, watch the movies first. That way you won’t have any spoilers, and you won’t be dissapointed when you realize that they (book vs movie) are not told in exactly the same way.
I remember when I first watched the lotr movies I enjoyed every bit of them, then I read the books(and enjoyed those too). but when I saw the first hobbit film having read the books I was dissapointed when things turned out differently.
Can’t wait for the festival of CGI overload!!!
BEN CUMBERBATCH IS SUCH A FRIGHTENING SMAUG ITS JUST TOO AWESOME!
WOW AMAZING CANT WAIT THANK YOU PETER AND CREW!!!
OH. WOW. My mind was just blown AWAY!!!!! I watched it this morning but wasn’t able to comment. How you manage to make such awesome and epic trailers Peter Jackson and friends…is beyond me…this is going to be just as epic and good as first (maybe better) Keep up the Good work you guys! I LOVE THIS!!! AND I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! December is taking too long to get here!!!! :O
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So happy we got a little glimpse of Kili .
I said it before, but I really think the use of Azog as a main villain is wasted and a distraction here. It looks like the barrels are just another fight scene and the attack on the Woodland Realm is superfluous.
Woah!! That trailer… still recovering [insert very long waiting period here]
Right! First of all, I think everyone should watch ‘THE HOBBIT’ movies as movies first and not book adaptations and see how they flow as movies, before anything else.
Second of all, I’ve forgotten what it was I wanted to say second of all…
(Maybe that was it)…
The trailer was so good I cried tears of joy. I am going to this midnight premiere, despite what finals I have the next day.
I have no words.. I should say I can’t wait to see it. But after that epic trilogy what to wait for? What to see and what will travel you so deep? Nothing. Back to square one. Middle earth forever.
I wish this trailer had been the first introduction of Smaug, not the previous trailer. Perfect entrance; I can listen to that part all day
I’m a bit worried that they have been given too much time to tell the story, so they’re filling it out with Tauriel and Azog. I could have watched more and more extensions of LOTR but I’m not sure about this one. I hope the film will be good.
It’s going to be epic! Thank you Peter, Fran, Philipa, and the cast and crew!
OMW I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so EXCITED!!! Best trailer yet! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
It is the BEST!!
Can a trailer make you sick from its epicness and intensity, or just because it’s SO good? OMG. Bilbo looks SO small, an incredible dragon, action sequences, the music, Mirkwood, Thranduil! PJ & co. have outdone themselves. PS. And a smokin’ HOT badass Thorin – how is it he’s even better looking (and more majestic) – dragonfire’s got nothing on him *fangirl squeal*. Will need an oxygen tank to get through the movie.
I know I LOOOOOVE Thorin!
I cannot wait for this movie to come out! It looks amazing, and I’d like to give a big thank you to PJ for the casting. John and Sherlock, together again I know this will be the best movie ever. I trust the cast and the crew have worked super hard on these.
My dad and I are gonna wear matching Hobbit shirts to the theater this time!!:D
DragonFire and ruin, that is what you will bring upon us. He cannot see beyond his own desire!! – Bard the Bowman
LOVE THAT!!!!!!!!!!! Something inside of me got really excited when he said that!!!!
I love that part…
Hey does anyone know how I can get a hold of Peter Jackson himself!! I need to like DESPERATELY!!
Heres all the dialogue in the trailer: (I memorized it, and I’m typing this from memory…i hope i get it all right and in order)
Bilbo: Truly…the tales and songs…fall utterly short…of your enormity, O, Smaug…the stupendous.
Thorin: We are the dwarves of Erebor, we have come…to re-claim out homeland.
Thranduil: I offer you my help
Dwalin: How do we know he won’t betray us?
Thorin: We don’t
Legolas: There is no King under the mountain nor will there ever be!
Tauriel: It will not end here, with every victory this evil WILL grow.
Thranduil: Legolas has grown very fond of you, do not give him hope where there is none.
Bard: You have no right to enter that mountain!
Thorin: I have the only right.
Gandalf: We have been blind, and in our blindness…our enemy…has returned!
Bilbo: I…found something in the Goblin tunnels….
Gandalf: What did you find?
Bilbo: ….My courage.
Gandalf: Good. You need it.
Bard: Fire and ruin…that is what you will bring upon us! He cannot see beyond his own desire!!
Thorin: I will not risk this quest on the life of one burglar!
Balin: His name is Bilbo.
Smaug: Thief…where are you? Come out…don’t be shy…step into the light!!
Thats it!! I think….Well, make sure to go and see the second installment of the Hobbit this december!!!! And if you can…in 3D!!!!
Hiya, Peter Jackson I was wondering if you could give me any advice on how to become a actress? I really want to become one so do you have any advice?
Hm, I am looking into being an actress as well. I don’t know if this helps, but studying how other actors/actresses do their thing i think helps. I’ve always been a movie bug, and i’ve noticed that each actor has a unique way of acting. thats why i enjoy watching the ‘behind the scenes’ in movies. so, i hope that helped.
Thank youthat did help
The movie looks great cant wait till it comes out
Waiting for another blog…hope it’ll be good!
What Peter Jackson fan mail adress
How badly ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
This trailer just reinforces the fact that Jackson takes yet more “artistic license” and changes the story of The Hobbit to appeal to a wider audience and rake in yet more money. Shame on him.
Epic as expected. =D
I noticed that legolas has blue eyes. Like they’re changing. I know for a fact that Orlando has brown eyes and when he was legolas in lotr legolas also had brown eyes.So why did they change legolas’ eye color?(Not complaining he looks better with blue eyes just curious)
