Well, judging by the most recent clip we've seen for the upcoming movie, Jackson wasn't lying. These brand new TV spots for the movie are including what appears to be a big ol' battle between some Orcs and a Thorin-led band of Dwarves.
I loved the fact that An Unexpected Journey was lighter and more true to it's children's book roots. But these two grittier TV spots continue to get me totally pumped for Jackson's Desolation of Smaug. In fact, if any film has the potential to live up to its hype, this is it. What do you think?
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters December 13, 2013.
