Hobbit Smaug

(Los Angeles Times) – The first trailer for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” offers fans a glimpse of the gold-hording dragon Smaug, the return of fan-favorite elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and a peek at the horrors ahead in the Mirkwood forest.

“The Desolation of Smaug,” which hits theaters Dec. 13, is part two in the series, following last year’s box office hit “An Unexpected Journey.” “Desolation” picks up where the first film left off, after hobbit Bilbo, wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and the dwarfs escape from a band of bloodthirsty orcs.
