As the excitement for Man of Steel and Pacific Rim builds, there are some people who don't want you to forget a little fantasy film coming out on on December 13, 2013 so a poster and trailer have been released.

The Desolation of Smaug, part two of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, continues the events from An Unexpected Journey, as the hobbit Bilbo Baggins travels with the Wizard Gandalf, the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield, and his company into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to eventually the epic combat with the dragon Smaug. The film stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Sylvester McCoy, Luke Evans, Orlando Bloom, and Evangeline Lilly.

The poster shows a lone Bilbo gazing upon a doorway set in the Lonely Mountain where a yellow glow can be seen.  Is it Smaug the dragon's golden treasure or his fiery breath?

Though An Unexpected Journey was a bit bloated, the trailer for Desolation offers quite a bit of action and excitement, especially the latter once Smaug can be seen among the shadows.

What do you think of it?
