Smaug the magnificently smooth-talking

early this morning, Peter Jackson unveiled the second trailer for The Desolation Of Smaug on his Facebook page.

the previous trailer, which was released a few months ago, was subject to criticism from fans due to the possible spoiler of showing Smaug’s head in the last few seconds. trailer # 2 seems to keep the mammoth beast largely hidden, but finally reveals his ominously booming voice (with some possible auto-tune tweaking) to the world. until he is finally revealed in December, audiences will continue to assume that Sherlock Smaug is 75% dragon, 20% lion, and 5% ’57 Chevy Impala.


kudos on the voice…at least he doesn’t sound like a phlegmatic New York City cabbie as he did in the Rankin/Bass version.
