    Looks wonderful – I do wonder how much of the movie will be Smaug’s attack on Lake Town, and how much will be taken up by the battle of the five armies. I suspect that the attack doesn’t take up much time, while the attack’s aftermath and build-up to the battle, the battle itself, and it’s aftermath will be the majority of the movie. SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK (YOU SHOULD): I think that Jackson might try to use Smaug’s sudden death as a shock for the non-reader audience, suddenly changing the objective of the movie. It will depend on what the trailers look like. He did make the mistake of putting Gandalf the White into the Two Towers trailer, though
