A scaly new monument has appeared in a cinema foyer that could be the gold-hoarding, hobbit-roasting Smaug.
One of the most anticipated bits of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy has been the epic dragon Smaug, which J.R.R. Tolkien fans have been dying to see on the big screen for decades. Now we have our first glimpse at the mighty creature in action.
Ever since we learned that we're getting three Hobbit films instead of two, we've been wondering just how Peter Jackson might fit everything together. Given that film two is subtitled The Desolation of Smaug, we assumed the big bad dragon wouldn't show up until then, but according to Jackson, we'll get to glimpse him this December.
We knew Peter Jackson's now-trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit would feature the famed dragon Smaug, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, but what we didn't know is when we might meet him. Now it seems Cumberbatch may have let Jackson's scheme slip.
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has opened up about one of the two roles he'll get to play in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit—and his description of that role is absolutely hilarious.
It takes a lot of green to afford a place like Wayne Manor, or to generate something as awesome as an Iron Man suit in the privacy of your own home, or to keep an entire clan of vampires secret and comfortable for decades. Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark and Twilight's Carlisle Cullen are all filthy rich, but there's one fictional character who's got more dough than all of them combined.
Some people have awesomely keen eyes—and a lot of time on their hands, too, luckily for geekdom everywhere. And so it is that we may have completely missed our very first "look" at The Hobbit's big bad dragon Smaug. Until now.
Director Guillermo del Toro has new ideas for the dragon at the heart of The Hobbit.
