A few weeks ago, director Peter Jackson held an online Q&A and preview for the upcoming 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.' However, if you wanted to watch or take part, you had to have bought 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' on DVD or Blu-ray and followed the proper instructions (you know, typing in codes and such). Although the entire event remains an exclusive, Jackson has posted a six minute excerpt to YouTube, letting everyone get a taste of the what it was like and get a glimpse of the new Middle Earth adventure.

Director Peter Jackson unveiled some new images from 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,' featuring Evangeline Lilly, Ian McKellen, and a whole bunch of green screen! Plus, he revealed when fans can expect to see the first trailer for the next installment.
Thanks to the new 'Hobbit' iOS app, a new series of images from the hotly anticipated film have migrated online for your viewing pleasure. Although most of them are character stills and portraits, one of them reveals where the first film of the trilogy will conclude. Spoilers lurk ahead for those who haven't read the original novel!
So we're exceptionally curious about 'The Hobbit' films now that Peter Jackson and company have decided to transform two pictures into three. We have no idea if this was a good decision, or just a chance to take advantage of audiences that fell in love with the first three films. What we do know are the titles of the trilogy and their release dates.
