The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review Upodcast

The first return  to Hobbit country might have not gone as planned for Peter Jackson’s as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was critically derided but still made mint at the box office.

So is second part in this new Middle Earth trilogy any different?

That’s exactly the question we debate with Sujoy Singha (OneKnighStand and BollyPop) after we got a slight headache from watching a 3 hours 3D movie with out any singing and dancing.

New Trailer The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Being a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings book and movie series, I was quite looking forward to it’s sequel but when I started watching it when it finally came out on DVD, I fell asleep twice and never managed to finish it. The story has been stretched out for 3 movies where the book itself is quite short, I never bought into the central premise or the farcical tone.

This new trailer and images shows quite a bit more of the action as well as new cast members.

I still don’t know if it is enough for people to get really hyped about it though.

 

Here are some more images:

The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventures of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a production of New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television distribution being handled by MGM.

 

The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug opens nationwide across the UK on 13th December 2013.

The Hobbit: Amazing New Stills

There really isn’t much to say about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, if you loved the previous LOTR trilogy by Peter Jackson and have seen the trailers, you are pretty much completely on board and probably have the date of 13 december marked in your calendar.

Although the original book itself is much shorter, Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro have put their geek brains together and padded the story out for 3 movies.

Some cynics might see it as a cash grab but you can’t deny the passion and love that Jackson has for this world.

 

Here are some exclusive new images from the movie.

 

Honestly, I can’t wait to visit this world again.
