The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all - a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself - the Dragon Smaug.

Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, with Martin Freeman in the central role of Bilbo Baggins, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. The international ensemble cast is led by Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom as Legolas. The film also stars (in alphabetical order) John Bell, Manu Bennett, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Lawrence Makoare, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Dean O'Gorman, Mikael Persbrandt, and Aidan Turner.

Thorin's stubbornness will become a huge plot point in these next two movies and Richard Armitage looks like he's got that down perfectly! Can't wait to see this movie!

@marvelstudios - they can't. The rights to all the other books on Middle-earth are owned by the Tolkein estate who aren't too keen on adapting everything to cinema. If it's not in the hobbit, LOTR, or the appendixes we probably won't see it. Sucks.

This movie will own..I thought the first one was great as well. People complain about it being too long but I love it when a movie takes time to breathe. I also don't get the criticism about this being a money grab..Well no shit it's a money grab, so is every other damn blockbuster movie. What matters is that they turn out a finished and enjoyable product, which they most certainly did. They delivered a long-ass, high production-valued film that was more than worth my $10. F*ck the haters.
