If you haven’t already seen “The Desolation of Smaug”, I highly recommend getting yourself to a movie theater and watching it. I saw it with a friend of mine this past weekend and it was all kinds of excellent. Failing that, you can watch the following three videos.
First up is a fun video of three of the elves–Evangeline Lilly (Tauriel), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), and Lee Pace (Thranduil)–reacting to a video of two fans (Fili and Kili from OneRing.Net) watching the trailer for “Smaug”. The actors are excited to see the fans excited and it’s really charming.
Unfortunately, neither the actors nor the audience can see what parts of the trailer the fans are reacting to. So here’s video with the fans, the actors, and the trailer altogether.
And since this is the Internet age, here’s a video of the fans reacting to the video of the actors watching them which is even more fun if that’s possible.
