'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug' Gets Five(!) New Banners, Only One New Trailer


Happy New "Hobbit" Trailer Day!

Frankly, these days don't happen enough, but when they do they're always great at rousing our interest in the "Lord of the Rings" prequel trilogy from Peter Jackson and company. The latest trailer even gives us what the hordes on Tumblr have been dying for: a quick listen to Benedict Cumberbatch voicing Smaug the dragon!

The lengthy trailer is our best look yet at the second installment, which is only two months and two weeks away. (Yes, we're counting. What's it to you?) How are you feeling about "The Desolation of Smaug"? If you're old enough to remember 2002, how does this compare to your anticipation for "The Two Towers"?

Take a look at the new trailer, along with four more new banners, after the jump! And let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on Twitter.





"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens on December 13.
