Smaug Attacks in 'The Hobbit 3' Photos and TV Spot

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The deadly dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) sets Lake-town on fire in three new photos from The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. We also see Lake-town native Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) trying to defend his city from enemy forces. While it isn't known exactly how much time transpires between last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and this final Hobbit adventure, it is believed that The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies picks up directly after its predecessor, meaning these photos may depict some of the film's opening moments.
