The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Final Trailer Released

As the Misty Mountains near ever closer, Warner Brothers launch the third theatrical trailer for Desolation ahead of its December release!
Warner Brothers Pictures have today released the third and final theatrical trailer for their upcoming fantasy film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The sequel to 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson's second chapter in his Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy will pick up from where its predecessor left off, with Bilbo and the Company of Dwarves braving Mirkwood's spiders, the Dark Forest's Elves and ultimately Erebor's tyrannical dragon Smaug on the final leg of their quest to regain the lost kingdom.

What should be of keen interest in Desolation, though, and is emphasised at the end of this preview (below), is the follow-up's most prominent secondary plot strand. Gandalf and Radagast are busy investigating the reemergence of the Necromancer, an antagonist figure who will eventually turn out to be none other than Sauron himself. The Necromancer is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, the man who incidentally voices Smaug in this particularly star-studded production. Perhaps we'll see these strands fully realised next month, or perhaps the major reveal will be held back until There and Back Again next year- either way, there are dark and thrilling times ahead...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug blazes into cinemas worldwide on December 13th.
