Smaug The Stupendous

“His name is Bilbo.”

My only regret is not seeing this trailer on a giant movie screen with surround sound. We finally get to hear Cumberbatch’s voice as Smaug and holy fuck, I can just imagine my seat rumbling in the theater and he speaks. Just wow!

So I’m probably reading too much into this, but I thought Thorin Bushy Brows decided that Bilbo was a bro at the end of the first film. From the sound of the trailer, it seems that Thorin Cranky Shield is all pissy with Bilbro again. Sooooo did the broship of the first one never happen? Or does Bilbro bro too hard for Thorin Smouldery Eyes? I’m sure it’s going to be amazing, but that characterization seems off to me. But like I said, I might be reading too much into a throwaway line in a trailer.

Looking forward to it, although not looking forward to the high frame rate 3D nonsense. 2D for me all the way!
