The second film in a trilogy can either be really good or really bad. They have to balance setting up characters from the first movie, while finding an ending that will leave audiences satisfied. Peter Jackson already has one trilogy under his belt, and now the second movie of the Hobbit trilogy is here, The Desolation of Smaug. Starring Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans and Evangeline Lilly, this film picks up where the first one left off as Bilbo and the Dwarves continue their journey to the Lonely Mountain.

Before the Lord of the Rings, J.R. Tolkien wrote another book, The Hobbit. After the success of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy in the early 2000’s, it was inevitable that this novel would get adopted too. Peter Jackson is back behind the camera for part one of the new trilogy, which lays the ground work for the quest of 12 dwarves, a wizard and a hobbit. This film stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage along with cameos from LOTR stars such as Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis.
