The second part of director Peter Jackson’s lengthy adaptation of Tolkein’s The Hobbit is to be released in December, obviously aiming for the Christmas holidays, but a huge marketing campaign has already swung into action with the release of a full-length trailer.
The Desolation of Smaug, follows the further adventures of hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), the 13 dwarves and ,of course, the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Sir Ian McKellen) in Middle Earth. Bilbo and Gandalf have successfully escaped the Misty Mountains, and Bilbo has gained the One Ring. Now they continue their quest to get their gold back from the Dragon, Smaug.
It follows the 2012 film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
