Watched it twice....
Looks darker than part one. Liked all that I saw except perhaps an Orc attack on Thranduil's Hall, which looks amazingly natural and wooden.
Smaug sounds great! Deep and Heavy.
Legolas's voice has broken and Tauriel sounds like Arwen. I like the Auburn hair.
I feel that Tauriel will serve as a character to connect the audience to the elves, as so far Elrond has been against the dwarves' quest, as Thranduil and Legolas will be from what the trailer has shown. She'll probably help Bilbo with the dwarves' escape, convince Thranduil to go to Erebor, and then (as Vir has said) will die in the Battle of the Five Armies.
That's my prediction at least
Yea Brego when I saw the elves chasing the barrels I got a little worried, but the inclusion of the "white orc" also bothered me so most of the stuff shown in this trailer made me a little perturbed. I'm going into Desolation of Smaug open minded. I have to say I loved the glimpse of Lake Town though.
Well I'm pretty excited about it. There's really no denying it looks pretty inaccurate. But, oh well, I know I'll still love it. I'm a sucker for anything Tolkien related. And Smaug looks so cool.
I really can't wait until December...I want to see Lake City and Beorn!
