‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ Trailer: Orlando Bloom Is Back (And Still Kicking Ass)
Ladies, prepare to get your swoon on all over again.
Warner Bros. has released the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Tuesday afternoon and fans of the J.R.R. Tolkien novel (or Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film franchise) can expect to see a familiar face. Case in point: Orlando Bloom reprising his role of the blonde-headed, ethereally-gorgeous Legolas.
Ten years after Return of the King’s release, the actor is picking up his bow and arrows once more to join Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage in the follow-up to 2012’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The film, which will also see newcomers Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch — his voice and motion-captured body, that is — and Evangeline Lilly, will precede The Hobbit: There And Back Again.
This second installment of The Hobbit trilogy is due out in theaters on Dec. 13.
