New Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Trailer and Posters

It’s that time of year again, with the holidays coming around, and the best part of that, of course, is the next big round of blockbusters hitting theaters. This December the second installment of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, will arrive and today we got a bunch of goodies to tide us over until then.

First, we have a new trailer, and this one finally gives us the chance to hear Smaug’s voice, a truly chilling, rumbling thing that could only come from Benedict Cumberbatch. Check it out:

Next, four new posters have been released, showing off returning characters such as Bilbo (of course) with the dwarves, Gandalf, and Thranduil, as well as new character Bard the Bowman:
