Thoughts on the trailer for Desolation of Smaug

I woke up this morning and before settling down to write, decided to check out the movie news on imdb. And there it was, i almost choked on my cereal. The trailer for the Desolation of Smaug. I immediately clicked on the link and tapped my keyboard impatiently while the video buffered. And then i sat there for two minutes, completely immersed. All i can say is that it’s been quite a while since i have anticipated a movie so much. Perhaps since Deathly Hallows Part 2. Unlike so many, and along with so many, i thought the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was epic, brilliant and couldn’t have been any better.

The sequel promises to be faster, more action packed and if its possible, even more epic than the first. We get to see more of Peter Jackson’s vision of Tolkien’s world. Legolas is back, along with Evangeline Lilly who looks awesome as an elf (not that she didn’t before) and finally we get to see Smaug (Well, his head at least). Whilst i was a little underwhelmed by Smaug the rest of the trailer has me practically itching to see the movie. 

And so now the countdown begins to December. 

Check out the trailer for yourself.


About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
