Video: First Footage From The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug [Video Removed]

The first scene from The Desolation of Smaug has arrived online for the greater public. This was quicker than I anticipated. It may not be completely on the up and up, mind, so if Warner Bros. ask for it to be taken down… I will comply.

In the meantime, feast. And after the clip, stay tight for a lot of the other stuff I saw tonight.

VIDEO REMOVED BY WARNER BROS.

As well as showing this clip, Peter Jackson and friends spent an entire hour discussing The Desolation of Smaug earlier tonight, and we live blogged it all.
