The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
has released a pair of new TV spots online, as Bilbo and the company of dwarves continue their quest to unseat the villainous dragon, Smaug.
There are a few new action snippets to savour (dwarves in barrels!), alongside plenty of hand-wringing over the immensity of the task ahead.
We particularly like Thranduil's pearl of wisdom when he gravely muses, "such is the nature of evil… in time, all foul things come forth."
Take a look at the new spots, below…
Yes, it's that time of year again: the clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in, and a festive return to Middle-earth draws closer. We can hardly wait!
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.
