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.
