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.


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.
