THE HOBBIT Cast On Their Favorite Moments From THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

THE HOBBIT Cast On Their Favorite Moments From THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

Total Film caught up with Peter Jackson and some of the cast to get their thoughts on the second movie in the trilogy, specifically what they feel audiences should be most looking forward to. Check out the slightly SPOILERY video..

In the following series of video interview snippets, Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, James Nesbitt, Aidan Turner, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett and visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri discuss what fans can look forward to in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. They don't give too much away, but anyone who hasn't read the novel and doesn't want to know a thing about the second movie in Peter Jackson's new trilogy should be wary of some mild SPOILERS..

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is in theaters now, and The Desolation Of Smaug will be with us December 13th, 2013.

From that, I'm thinking that most of the movie is going to be spent in Mirkwood, and will probs end with the door being open in the Mountian.

second will probably end when bilbo goes into the lonely mountain

Freeman say she shares screens with Smaug, and the official still from the movie sees him rolling around in his I think the second movie will end with a certain Bowman doing his thing.

True Ror, but the Unexpected Journey trailer showed us Gandalf going into Dol Guldor himself,and that didn't happen sadly

AAAA can't wait!!!!!!!! An Unexpected Journey was fantastic!!!

I'm looking forward to the scene with the spiders, the barrels, and BEORN! But what I'm looking forward to the most for part 2 has got to be......

i confirm Ror's comment. i think Smaug will be present A LOT in the second film.
HelaGood - 12/18/2012, 9:50 AM
and i confirm Nomis' comment about Beorn!!!
Nomis1800 - 12/18/2012, 9:50 AM
@RorMachine: I think that's what's gonna happen. There is a lot of great stuff going to happen in the second film I wonder.. What will we get, besides the more than epic battle of the five-armies, in the third film??????
Danbojohnj - 12/18/2012, 9:52 AM
And the Necromancer battle hope
charlie2094 - 12/18/2012, 9:56 AM
@ HavocPrime

Yes, but that was released before the Hobbit was announced as being a trilogy, instead being just two films at the time.
Feedthemachine - 12/18/2012, 10:17 AM
Beorn & the Mirkwood elves should be phenomenal.
StarkAnthony - 12/18/2012, 10:20 AM
PJ said that the barrel scene takes place early in the film. I can't see it as any earlier than about halfway though, there's quite a bit to get through before the barrels
HavocPrime - 12/18/2012, 10:53 AM
Either way I bet the film will be awesome, I really do hope we get to see Smaug full on in this one.
CapFan79 - 12/18/2012, 11:03 AM
The film ends with Smaug's death! 3rd film is battle of five armies and a bridge to LOTR. I assume Bilbo's journey home won't be as simple as Frodo's.

Lets not forget that Gandalf goes to visit Dol Guldur...such a lovely place.....
Nomis1800 - 12/18/2012, 12:01 PM
OMG yeah Dol Guldur!!! Looked so cozy, damn, I wanna live there! All my Nazgûls and ghosts are there, great to be with friends.
CapFan79 - 12/18/2012, 12:10 PM
Though I loved the Hobbit i think "The Desolation of Smaug" will be maybe more fun and more eventful. I felt only Radagast was sort of out of place in AUJ. Beorn will be great to see and it'll get a bit darker with the spiders and Dol Guldur and Smaug. I'd be surpised if they hold over Smaug for "There and Back Again". His death by Bard the Bowman and the dwarves re-entering Erebor is a good semi-happy ending before we see Bilbo and Thorin have a falling out over the Arkenstone and the elves and men in "There and Back Again".

Yeah, An Unexpected Journey was awesome!!

But, just out of excitement, does any of you think we can expect a teaser for The Desolation of Smaug before the new year?? I mean, the teaser for An Unexpected Journey also came out around the new year of last year...
CapFan79 - 12/18/2012, 2:49 PM
We won't get a trailer for #2 until April probably. That's consistent with The Two Towers. I bet maybe there'll be a trailer for There and Back Again at the credits of "Smaug" since #3 comes out July 2014.
OnePunchBaldy - 12/18/2012, 3:22 PM
@MB007 It's hard to say, usually we got teasers for the next LOTR movies around the time when the DVD was released, may be the same for The Hobbit.

Bring on Desolation of Smaug!!!
Super12 - 12/18/2012, 7:37 PM
I had the impression that the 2nd film is gonna end with the death of Smaug. Then the teaser for the 3rd film was the build up to the Battle of Five Armies. The Attack on Dol Guldur would probably be split up between the two depending on how they're gonna handle that. Though there could be enough with Beorn, the spiders, and the Wood Elves to keep them busy in 2...
elessarundomiel2382 - 12/19/2012, 3:33 AM
I have a question......when they first showed Azog after the hunting of the dwarves failed on Bruinen...where they in Weathertop? Those ruins looked very familiar
elessarundomiel2382 - 12/19/2012, 3:34 AM
@CapFan79 I thought all three films are December releases
Nomis1800 - 12/19/2012, 8:06 AM
@ elessarundomiel2382: No, the third film will be released half a year from the second one, that's right, Middle-Earth in the summer!
