Two new Desolation of Smaug TV spots!

As fangirlish.com reports, Peter Jackson and co. have released TV spots No. 4 and 5 in anticipation of the second Hobbit movie, set to hit theaters on December 13th. Let’s take a look!

This one features a lot of familiar imagery, with emphasis on themes brought out in Unexpected Journey and several shots shown in previous trailers. One thing that stands out is the bright-colored, overly active effects, which are certain to dazzle those who love the new-age 48 frames-per-second glow, yet frustrate traditionalists who are still clinging to the Lord of the Rings films.

Here’s No. 5:

Here, the emphasis is more on Bilbo and his journey, but there are several moments that ought to excite Hobbit fans considerably. For one thing, it never gets old catching glimpses of the barrels — one of the novel’s most iconic scenes — and the Bilbo-Gandalf dynamic definitely connects well with the successful Gandalf-Frodo tropes in LOTR. My favorite shot? Pause the video at 12 seconds, as the boat travels by water through a quaint, sleepy, almost Scandinavian fishing-looking village. What attention to detail! Often, it’s the set and world creation where Jackson does his best work, and it looks like fans will get plenty of that to chew on.

Less than two months to Desolation of Smaug! Who’s excited?

Hi everyone! Less than two months ’til we open “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” on December 13, and we’re in the midst of an intense post-production.

However, we have got a pretty cool fan event planned for Monday, November 4, and I would like to invite you to join me and many members of the cast in a special live presentation. We’ll be appearing before live audiences in cities around the world, including London, New York, Los Angeles and, of course, here in Wellington – which, for Kiwi fans, is going to be Tuesday, November 5.

This is how it’s going to work: the 4 host cinemas will all have members of the “Desolation of Smaug” cast on stage, and we’ll all be satellite-linked to allow everyone to participate in a simultaneous Q&A … as well as present a few special surprises. Additional cinemas will be set up in select locations worldwide where fans can gather and watch the events unfold live.

If you can’t be there in person the event will also be streamed live on the internet.

But for those that do show up in the cinemas… let’s just say that I’m going to have a special “thank you” from me for making that extra effort.

Be sure to check the official Facebook and Twitter pages for details on locations, timing, and how to sign up for a chance to join us.

We’re working around the clock at the moment, so I’m not going to get a lot of sleep between then and now, but I am looking forward to this. Hope to see you there!
