We’re only a couple of months away from the premiere of Peter Jackson’s, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The film will act as the second part of a trilogy, and cap of the remaining adventures that we’ve read in the books. I enjoyed the first film a lot and I’m sure that this film will be even better. Especially with the introductions of Luke Evans (Bard the Bowman) and Lily Evangeline (Tauriel).  Check out four new banners from the film below!

Those are great, but what’s even better is another trailer, finally featuring the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug! A talking Dragon! We haven’t seen this since Sean Connery in Dragonheart!
