Worried that you are not getting enough Middle Earth action? Well fear not, for today we have plenty for you! With less than a month to go before the release of Peter Jackson’s sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, I would take today’s collection of cool stuff as just the beginning of a huge marketing campaign.
Warner Brothers have released two brilliant, action packed new TV spots which is thrilling from start to finish! There is also a very impressive featurette looking at the set of Beorn’s house. Beorn is a giant man/bear that will dwarf (sorry) the rest of the cast, and the featurette shows just how Jackson and his team pulled off the size difference.
There is also a large collection of new images, banners and a poster, some of which come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventures of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a production of New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television distribution being handled by MGM.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens nationwide across the UK on 13th December 2013.
