The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug TRAILER!

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.

Is that you, Kate? Not so sure about that hair. Also, Jack needs you to go back to the island. Image taken from the video.

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?

New Hobbit Trailer!

A new trailer for the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been released!

It really doesn’t need any kind of introduction other than: WATCH IT!

The release date is scheduled for Dec. 14, 2012.

(UPDATE) Also, check out this sweet “Create Your Own Version” feature on The Hobbit‘s website! In the comments, tell me which ending you chose, so I can judge your level of awesomeness.

So, what do you think? Are you excited to watch this movie? And what do you think about the puffed up story lines of characters who appeared little or not at all in the actual J.R.R. Tolkien book?
