Few characters benefitted more from Peter Jackson’s second instalment of The Hobbit trilogy than Thorin Oakenshield, leader of a dwarf clan intent on reclaiming their homeland. As portrayed by Richard Armitage, it’s a subtle performance of a layered character, one we’re looking forward to seeing more of when The Hobbit trilogy comes to an end later this year.

We’re now entering the final quarter of the year, and although there are many great-looking films yet to be released, only a few will be more hotly anticipated than the second instalment of Peter Jackson’s pre-Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013). Following the character banners that have been revealed in the past few days, a second full-length trailer has surfaced online, giving us a tantalising glimpse of this big-budget December blockbuster.
