Now, just when you thought Benedict Cumberbatch couldn't get any more awesome (or, if you find him annoying, just when you thought Benedict Cumberbatch needed to become awesome), an awesome video of the geek-hero playing the distinctly CGI dragon Smaug in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrives.
And, spoiler alert - it's AWESOME.
As in, Benedict Cumberbatch crawling around the floor like a monstrous, perfect-annunciation-fueled cat, kind of awesome...
Which, on the scale of Cumberbatchian awesomeness, is about as far away from creepy dude in Atonement...
...and as close to Sherlock...
...as it ever actually gets without being an actual episode of Sherlock.
Which, in other words, means we give this brand spanking new video of B-Roll from his motion capture performance a firm, certified seal of Cumberbatch Awesomeness Approval, otherwise (not, ever) known as the Moviepilot CAA.
The only question now? What do you guys think? Where on the Cumberbatch Awesomeness Approval scale does his [The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug](movie:512310) mo-cap performance come?
Smaug's Cumberbatch Awesomeness Approval scale placement, gang?
