Sure it's old news that PJ's heading back to the Shire with and the gang, but it doesn't mean I'm going to talk about it any less...
Some new scans have been taken from Empire magazine's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug edition, which give us some new stills from the set of 's second foray his trilogy adapted from 's The Hobbit, as well as three Elven character portraits. HOLY LORD SAURON! Is it December 13th yet?
A disappointingly non-existent look at 's Smaug, then, but instead we're treated to those awesome portraits of Legolas (), Thranduil (), and Tauriel - a character not mentioned in the book and played by Lost's . With all of Jackson's tinkering, I wouldn't be surprised if Gollum turns up again as Smaug's sidekick or perhaps Aragorn and Boromir will inexplicably show up at the Battle of Five Armies, so there's plenty to look out for.
What do you expect from The Desolation of Smaug when it hits theaters December 13th? Sound off below.
