New TV spot for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug arrives online: watch now

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released a new TV spot online, in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular dragon appears front and centre.

That said, he’s still only glimpsed in brief snatches, a scale here, a burst of flame there, but it’s more than his non-appearance in much of the promotional material so far.

Elsewhere there are a couple of new snippets of footage, as the elves weigh into battle and Bilbo continues to draw upon hitherto unsuspected reserves of heroism.

Take a look, below…

While we might have initially harboured misgivings about splitting a relatively slight story into three films, there is something irresistibly festive about the annual arrival of a new Middle-earth adventure. Holidays are indeed coming…

Directed by Peter Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will open in the UK on 13 December 2013.
