‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ trailer #2

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug just released it’s second trailer, now with 75% fewer barrels.

The 2nd trailer doesn’t contain any new footage and is 36 seconds shorter. I guess that’s good if you’re ridiculously busy and can only commit a minute and a half to watching hobbits and such. Commercial time is expensive though, so this is more likely to turn up while you’re watching TV than the original 2+ minute video. It’s also a good excuse to watch it again because you’d likely forgotten how amazing it looked since the initial teaser last week.
