The Hobbit - The Desolation Of Smaug continues where The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey finishes.
As the film opens, we see Gandalf (Ian McKellen - X-Men, Lord Of The Rings) and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage - Captain America, Robin Hood) at the Prancing Pony Inn in Bree, where Gandalf persuades him to hire the services of a "burglar" to retrieve The Arkenstone, that he may unite the dwarfs and retake their homeland beneath the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug, who has taken up residence on the horde of gold assembled by the King.
The Hobbit GandalfOne year later and our strange party consisting of lots of Dwarves, a Wizard (Gandalf) and Bilbo Baggins the Hobbit (Martin Freeman - Hot Fuzz, Love Actually) strike out to find the secret door to The Lonely Mountain, visible only in the last light of Durin's Day.
