If you don't have the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition (yet), but would like to see Benedict Cumberbatch's audition tape for Smaug, check out the video in this Moviepilot article. I was SO happy to find that they included it on the EE, and - well I'm obviously a teensy bit biased *cough*, but he's utterly brilliant!

Gah, a month and a day until I get to see The Battle of the Five Armies (can only do the Saturday after opening, due to hubbie's current weekday schedule)! Can't wait and yet don't want it to end, if you know what I mean...

I'm working on a personal update, so hopefully I'll be able to post it before the end of the month. *fingers crossed*

From the official PBS twitter:




I hope I'll be able to watch it online somewhere once it aired, as we don't have any TV connection currently.

I know I know, I still need to put together a fandom post... although by now both The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug and Sherlock S3 are almost an old hat (well, S3E3 of the latter aired in the US tonight, but many Americans have seen it already anyway...) but I would still like to put down some of my reactions/thoughts. As much as I remember them, hee. Oh, and Benedict has written the foreward for Weta's upcoming book about the design/creation of Smaug for DoS - can't wait to hold that book in my greedy little hands!

An animation of Smaug in all his glory


OCTOBER 4, 2013 at 1:50 AM BY KELVARHIN -
Ringer Ryan sent us in the following gif made from the trailer, slowed down to show Smaug in all his fiery glory.
- Obviously this contains SPOILERS regarding Smaug's looks, (though the image is still pretty dark so you mostly get his shape, his eyes and briefly a few details of his head, but only hints of bodily details and colour), so don't watch if you want to be completely surprised when you go see the film! There is also a soundclip of Cumbersmaug's line from the trailer at the link, courtesy of "Our friends at The Hobbit Movies", but for those who want to avoid the Smaug gif, here's the link to the audio file - there are download and share buttons. Warning: The file autoplays as soon as you open the page.
