New Hobbit Clip Foreshadows Sauron & Lord Of The Rings; Mentions Smaug
We are about a week away from the premiere of The Hobbit and we get another clip from the movie.
This one is kinda cool as it foreshadows the coming of Sauron and leads into Lord of The Rings.
The Hobbit takes places 60 years prior, and we see Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Hugo Weaving as Elrond and Christopher Lee as Saruman sitting in council in the Elven city of Rivendell discussing the evil that's coming as well as the dragon, Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14th, 2012 with the sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, a year later on December 13th, 2013, followed by The Hobbit: There And Back Again on July 18th, 2014.
Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey with Martin Freeman playing Bilbo Baggins.
Also reprising their roles from “The Lord of the Rings” movies are: Cate Blanchett as Galadriel; Orlando Bloom as Legolas; Ian Holm as the elder Bilbo; Christopher Lee as Saruman; Hugo Weaving as Elrond; Elijah Wood as Frodo; and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
