Five Clips From ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ Are Having A Gravitas Contest

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens next Friday, December 13th, so Warner has released five new clips from a movie so long they could release a hundred more clips and there would still be footage left.

In the first clip, Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom speak some of that sexy elvish she just told Conan about. In the second clip, Thranduil (Lee Pace) finds out an evil entity may be returning to Middle Earth. So much acting in those eyebrows. The third clip follows Bard (Luke Evans) and Thorin (Richard Amitage) as they try to out-gravitas each other. Smaug isn’t the only one who’s smoldering.

In the fourth and fifth clips, Bilbo (Martin Freeman) avoids telling Gandalf about the ring he found in the goblin tunnels, and then he convinces the dwarves to get into barrels. He managed to do this without flipping off the camera.
