The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug UK Trailer

A shortened trailer?

Warner Brothers UK has released the official UK teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. You really have to wonder why they shortened the trailer for the UK. Perhaps they don’t need as much of a incentive to go? Check it out below. I believe I saw one or two new moments here. 

Synopsis: The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrives December 13, 2013.

 Ah beautiful. Don't know if there was anything new there but still happy to look at it again.

After LOTR I wasn't as excited for this but after part 1 I am eager to go back to middle earth

Oh and finally noticed that it did say HFR 3D, have to assume that's going to apply to the domestic release too. Great because that's the format I'm opting for

 I think every fast-pace-epic-action-scenes for ALL movies should be done in HFR.

yeah, nothing new, but I won't complain about having to watch this trailer again... or 15 times. Yay!

It took a few minutes to adjust to, but I really appreciated the HFR format and I'm glad they're sticking with it.

I still can't figure out why people will complain about there being three movies - I LOVE visiting Middle Earth and the more often, the better!

I thought HFR 3D was the most amazing film experience I've ever had. I would definitely consider seeing part two in that format.

 There was a new shot of lake town and an over head shot of Gandalf in dol goldor. Quick but definitely new.

I feel like the scene of the boat in the canal was new, but maybe not.  I was excited for new footage :(

The 48 framerate is what finally made 3D the superior movie format. I'm having a hard time understanding why someone would still prefer the standard version. Also definitely looking forward to "Desolation", even though the first movie never managed to reach the epic scale of LOTR.

 wormlander - my answer to your question, even if I WANTED to give HFR 3D a whirl to decide for myself whether I like it better or the past, I would go to movies all the time.  Times being what they are, me and my wife have only been able to afford to go to 2 movies so far this year - Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness.  The Hobbit is our last MUST SEE movie this year, with a "would definitely like to try" intent on Thor: The Dark World.  The Hobbit comes out around Christmas, which is after buying what meager gifts we can for loved ones after paying property taxes in November.  I would like to HFR a try sometime, but when it comes down to it, HFR is like an expensive luxury on top of a pricey indulgence already.
