For everyone who is as connected as I am (not very), guess what?
The Desolation of Smaug Official Trailer has been revealed. Yay!!
And now, something that is both entertaining and very revealing towards the attitudes of both fans and cast members, if you click here, you can see what happens when fans of The Hobbit, creators of the prestigious LOTR site TheOneRing.net, watch the trailers. They have quite a dramatic reaction. Then, you get to watch three actors, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly and Lee Pace, who play elves Legolas, Tauriel and Thranduil respectively, react to the reaction of these fans.
Personally, I think Legolas is looking a bit CGI, possibly due to the age difference that he needs to portray, but also possibly just because the images cut each other quote quickly.
