Tiny men, lots of action, and BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AS A DRAGON. What more could you ask for?
The Lonely Mountain is getting some company.
The first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second installment in the three-part prequel to The Lord of The Rings, has arrived after a very expected journey (Warner Bros. announced it would be hitting the internet earlier this week).
After a blockbuster last winter that introduced Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, this new film now presents his Sherlock partner Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug, a particularly irritable dragon who is quite the obstacle to the homeland-seeking dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield.
Also there is some romance.
We won’t spoil it here with words, just priceless GIFs.
Here’s where the Sherlock pals meet, kind of like an episode of the show.
Here’s the setup…
Yes, you were just Oakenshielded. That’s a word now.
