So, here we go again. Yesterday we got treated to the first look at the third movie in Peter Jackson's new trilogy, with a peek at Orlando Bloom and Luke Evans in "The Hobbit: There And Back Again." Now comes a non-dragon preview of "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" -- and all this before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens next week.

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

So, here we go again. Yesterday we got treated to the first look at the third movie in Peter Jackson's new trilogy, with a peek at Orlando Bloom and Luke Evans in "The Hobbit: There And Back Again." Now comes a non-dragon preview of "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" -- and all this before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens next week.

Up above is Martin Freeman in what seems to be the representation of his bank account now. Ha ha, but really, it's Bilbo likely in the midst of the treasure being guarded by the treacherous dragon Smaug. Meanwhile, a new clip from 'An Unexpected Journey' shows two old dudes and Cate Blanchett stressing that Smaug is totally the worst so they should probably do something about it. Cool story, bro. Meanwhile, a new image shows some kind of monster thing and Gandalf in a cave or something.

So take a look at everything below along with covers from Entertainment Weekly. 'An Unexpected Journey' lands on December 14th and you can read our review right here.
