movie news: New Trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of SmaugNo Comment
Today sees the release of the latest trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
I have to admit, my enthusiasm for The Hobbit has waned a little since that first full length trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released just over a year ago. I had high expectation for that film but, like so often in this business, I was left faintly disappointed. You can read my review below but basically, I found myself distracted by the 48fps and disappointed by the fact that it was a film that was all set up and very little punch.
I still think Peter Jackson’s a fantastic film-maker, and I still love the world of Middle-Earth. So needless to say I do still have some hope for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. After the first film, I do think splitting it into a trilogy was a huge mistake… but this new trailer looks great and there’s undoubtedly more action in part 2, so I’m keeping the flame burning for now.
Plus, it is a really cool name.
Take a look, do you think The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been worth waiting for?
