Trailer Analysis: Epic Goodness in Sneak Peek to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

While this isn't technically a trailer, I think it still counts. On Monday, during The Hobbit Fan Event, several videos were featured. This sneak peek was one of those videos. This 3 minute sneak peek was full of new content and was bigger overall. To get better look at this grand sneak peek, here is another trailer analysis of The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug.

Bard the Bowman and his Rhyme

The sneak peek features a little more of Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans). The sneak peek starts with a voice over of Bard as he opens with foretelling of the return of the King Under The Mountain. While we have hear Bard's objection of Thorin of entering the mountain before, we do get a better sense of Bard such as seeing his family. Bard's role in this video might be the same, but what we see of him in this trailer signifies that he does have a role to play.

Evil Rising:

In the full trailer, we saw that dark forces were a foot In this sneak peek, we get a similar idea of the previous. Only this time we see evil rising from the Orc's perspective. It's only one moment, but it's enough to see that  forces of Sauron are on their way. 


We get to see a little more of Thorin's determination. In the sneak peek, this point plays out differently then it does in the full trailer. While we see scenes of Thorin arguing with Ballin and telling everyone that "We'll all burn together", the drama of Thorin Oakenshield meshes into the epicness of the trailer. 


In the full trailer, we had look into the Elve's story. The elves are once again focal points in this new trailer, but the video does not go into anything new. I guess we have all the details we need for the tale of  Legolas and Tauriel. 

Overall Intensity:

The sneak peek is just epic. Everything in this trailer is like a roller coaster as it throws into action j From the spiders to elves to dragon fire, the sneak peek tries to make the film as intense as possible. Does it work: you tell me?

While there are new scenes in this sneak peek, the video works acts  the same as the Full Trailer. Be that as it may, if you are Hobbit fan, you would be foolish not to watch this. It's three minutes of epic goodness and December 13th can't come any sooner.
