The second “Hobbit” film is just two weeks away from it’s release and will have it’s world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday (December 2nd).
From filmmaker Peter Jackson comes â€œThe Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,â€ the second in a trilogy of films adapting The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The film continues the adventure of the title character, Bilbo Baggins, as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous Mirkwood Forest. After escaping capture by the dangerous Woodland Elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of allâ€”a creature more terrifying than any before, which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itselfâ€”the Dragon Smaug.
The film stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Michael Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Ken Stott and Aidan Turner.
