The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Trailer #3 and Production Diary

the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-1a(PCM) As the holidays grow near, many fans are gearing up for the return Peter Jackson and his second installment of The Hobbit franchise. With December right around the corner we are rapidly approaching release date, which means we will surely be seeing a boost in advertisements.

Today the marketing onslaught begun. Along with a slue of official new character posters a third official trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was released today. The trailer clocks in at just about 3 minutes but the bet part it is…new footage! Check it out right here!

Usually by the time we are getting a third trailer we tend to see a lot of recycled material with subtle alterations. Well that certainly isn’t the case here. The new trailer featured here is made up of almost entirely new footage. I would also say this is the best trailer so far, and if your like me, the last two trailers might not of sold you on it. But we now finally have a trailer showcasing the epic sequel and now that the story is setup and everyone is introduced we might really get the adventure everyone is hoping for.

And thats not all! Want to get a sneak peek of the making of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug? Check out what goes into adapting the works of JRR Tolkien onto the silver screen (it doesn’t quite look like all fun and games) and exactly what it takes to bring that world to life.
