A new trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" gives viewers another peek at the upcoming middle volume of "The Hobbit" movie trilogy. The video was released on Tuesday on YouTube, and elsewhere, and is embedded.
An earlier, two minute long trailer was released in June, and despite its length, was called a teaser. It gave fans the first look at Smaug, the film's dragon antagonist. This time around, fans get to hear what a dragon sounds like, as Smaug's rumbling, deep growls only serve to emphasize the trouble that Bilbo Baggins finds himself in at the end of the trailer.
In this trailer, we watch the company of dwarves that Bilbo is traveling with near their goal of reclaiming their homeland. We also see more footage of Legolas in action, alongside Evangeline Lilly, who plays fellow elf Tauriel (a character specifically created for the film).
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" hits theaters on Dec. 13.
