Watch: Honest Trailer For ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’

Among the biggest criticisms of The Hobbit Trilogy is that it pales in comparison to the magic and wonder that The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy had. That practically makes it easy pickings for people like CinemaSins and ScreenJunkies. Now, just in time for the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, - much like the SNL mashup of The Hobbit and The Office starring Martin Freeman – ScreenJunkies has unleashed an Honest Trailer for the film’s second entry in the Hobbit Trilogy, The Desolation Of Smaug.

As you might expect, ScreenJunkies criticizes the film’s unnecessary three hour marathon runtime, the flashbacks, subplots, and obvious villain the film tries to hide. Hit the jump to check it out. [Read more…]

This season of Saturday Night Live isn’t exactly the best season. And while their digital shorts creators Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg,are long gone, the SNL team still manages to churn out creative videos in their absence. The Hobbit Trilogy’s Martin Freeman hosted the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, and starred in their digital sketch where the actor reprised his role as Bilbo Baggins in a parody of The Office set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Bobby Moynihan was Gandalf, while Taran Killam did a hilarious portrayal of Gollum that might give Andy Serkis a run for his money.

Normally we’d learn about characters through the source material, a plot synopsis, or straight from the cast or crew. But given that everyone is so tight-lipped about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, trying to get information like names of the characters is next to impossible. We already know that the film is canon, and will see the return of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, and more iconic starships. Plus the Sith. But since the trailer dropped a few weeks back, we don’t know who John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, or Oscar Issac is playing. We also don’t now who the Sith with the broadsword is – maybe it is Adam Driver. And we cannot just keep calling the rolling droid a soccer ball.

Now in a very cool move, EW has revealed the names of the characters seen in the trailer on trading cards. Okay, they aren’t actually trading cards, however, these images resemble the trading cards of yesteryear, and even us the Star Wars designs. Hit the jump to see them all. [Read more…]
