Heads up, Tolkien-ites! Peter Jackson and co. have released the first real trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!
I’m excited for this latest Middle Earth movie, but I must say that it looks rife with things that are not really in The Hobbit… I’m looking at you, Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel and Legolas (Orlando Bloom). The pair are in the trailer a lot. A lot.
But, I understand the need to beef things up. I mean, how else were they going to make another trilogy and rake in TONS of cash out of something that really is rather short?
What do you guys think? Excited? Cautiously optimistic?
