Warner Bros just unveiled a new trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," the second film in the prequel trilogy. Check it out below.
Plot: The story continues the adventure of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
The new movie is once again directed by Peter Jackson and is set to hit theaters on December 13th.
Cool I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm hyped for this. Jackson is not always the best storyteller, but he always brings alot of verve to his filmmaking. He builds his worlds imaginatively and revels in them.

Looks exciting. Glad it didn't show TOO much of Smaug.

@Cannon: About Batman Returns and why is the best movie about Batman yet, is simply because of how they presented and explore that world and characters, and wasnīt based very specifically in any material already written, every character worked, the music, the action, the dark comedy, the production design, the plot.
You talk a lot about gay sex and homosexuality Mink. I`m not suggesting anything, but its kind of suspicious, and it makes us wonder. But I`ll support you my friend, if you decide to open your legs to the world of men. Or are u a woman?

Of course I'm not a woman, Swoooop; I'm talking to you, aren't I?
I do agree, Crambo. There is a complete over use of CGI in the first movie.

FYI: Pacific Rim (HD) now out on the Internet.
Pretty f*cking cool movie.

Yeah I really liked Pacific Rim. Once it really gets going it gave me the nostalgic feel of watching Voltron after school. I will definitely get the Collector's Blu-Ray set with the Gypsy Danger Jæger replica.
Fair enough, I suppose. I just recently watched it for the first time in nearly 15 years. I'm not sure if I agree with you on all points but I did find it mildly (if not surprisingly) entertaining for walking the line between serious and camp.
I'm no fan of the Nolan films so I certainly qualms rating Forever higher. Though, I do still prefer Burtons original and, as far as the ideal Batman outside the comics, I'd say Mask of the Phantasm nailed it.
@Mink: "He builds Tolkien's worlds repetitively and revels in making money off of them."
Yeah, he does that, too. But it's his time and effort, so I'd say it's money earned. Either way, passion and profit are not mutually exclusive. And I do sense a lot of passion for these films, even if they don't always work in terms of storytelling.
@Cannon: Yeah, in that matter, Mask of the Phantasm is the best, yes.
As for Jacksonīs adaptation of Tolkien, are really good films, but Iīm not a fan of the hobbit movies as I was with the LoTR trilogy before, havenīt seen the first of this, nor do I care to see it, not sure why, Iīm not even bothering myself about it either.
Well, as for Pacific Rim, well, is edgy and entertaining, and although is a little bit cheesy sometimes, the plot is well thought and believable within its universe.
I already downloaded it, Iīve seen the first 15 minutes, but I had to stop it to do some other things before watch the movie again.
I know Jackson created new characters that Tolkien didnīt.
In that matter, is a f*cked up way to adapt and based on the films on a preexisting material such as Tolkienīs books, and being unrespectful about it, by saying "is our version of the history, blah, blah", well, anyway.

Damned shame Pacific Rim didn't do better in theaters.

Trailer looks ok ! Nothing more !!!
Pacific Rim was corny as hell but had some epic fights -I fear that movie only works on the big screen(like cinema or hometheatre)-think it will look silly on a tv-set !!

Uh, I watched it on a laptop. Looked f*cking great. Maybe you saw a very different film. You know, like Robot Jox.
