The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug Preview Footage – Details And Live Blog

Screen Shot 2013-03-24 at 18.47.33

In just over fifteen minutes, Peter Jackson is going to be taking part in a live video Q&A and premiering footage from the second Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug.

As we warned you a little while back, the event will be locked and only those who purchased a copy of An Unexpected Journey will have a code to get in. I did, and so I do, and I’ll do my best to pass on anything I learn – and tell you what the footage reveals.

The event starts at 7pm GMT, 3pm EST or noon PST. Keep an eye on this post for the live blog below – and if Warner Bros. decide to make any element of this open and viewable without the code, I’ll make sure you know about that too.

UPDATE: Please read the live blog below, but see some of the footage too.
