WATCH: First look at Smaug in The Hobbit TV Spot

December 3rd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well, everyone (except me, it seems) is getting giddy with the dreaded The Hobbit fever

So much so that, when this new TV spot hit at the weekend, the large shadow in it had everyone jumping with excitement. I mean, fair enough it’s a dragon, but still, it’s hardly  front page news… but here you go anyway.

Here he is! At last! Finally! Smaug from The Hobbit!

Or his shadow…

The Hobbit: a Unexpected Journey is released on December 13th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
