If for some reason you missed this afternoon's Hobbit Fan Event, brace yourself as the new trailer is about to send chills of anticipation tingling through your body.
After an extended global Q&A session has been completed, Peter Jackson bid farewell to fans watching online, but promised folks who were gathered in theaters in L.A., New York, London and Wellington a special surprise.
Curiosity gave way to stunned excitement as a new three-minute trailer was revealed. It is by far the best edited and most well-rounded Hobbit trailer to date. If this doesn't get you amped up to buy tickets for the second chapter in the Hobbit franchise, I'm not sure what will. Sign up for a Fan Alert to know when tickets go on sale.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrives in theaters December 13. OK, enough reading. Watch the trailer below.
