What!? Peter Jackson didn't tell us?
Some new footage of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was revealed at CinemaCon in Las Vegas just a few days ago. Little is known concerning the footage by those who were unable to attend CinemaCon. However, Variety has said the following, which, although very little, is the primary source of this post.
""The Hobbit" director Peter Jackson also appeared in a video with a few brief clips from the "Desolation of Smaug" with Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom appearing.
Jackson’s matter-of-fact presentation was in sharp contrast with last year’s CinemaCon event when WB’s presentation — including 10 minutes of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" — generated a mixed reaction over the pic’s 48 frames-per-second format."
