'The Hobbit' fan event unleashes new trailer

With "The Hobbit" sequel's December 13 release date now just a touch more than a month away, director Peter Jackson is unleashing every teaser he's got.

At a fan event on Monday, anxious "Hobbit" fans were sated with a fresh sneak peek - and this one so close on the heels of the last full-length look we got at "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."

The new clip is a healthy three-minutes long, and dramatically sets the scene with the warning that Middle Earth is in "grave danger."

Where the first installment in "The Hobbit" trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," might have been more meandering than fans would have hoped, the "Desolation of Smaug" is trying its hardest to show that this film will be far more action-packed than the last.

One thing is for sure: we wouldn't be nearly as brave as one particular hobbit when coming face-to-fire with the "king under the mountain":

    I don't think the problem with the last Hobbit film had anything to do with a lack of action, so ramping it up for the 2nd installment isn't necessarily the answer. If anything, the action seemed unnecessary at times; tacked on and stretched out too long. Just tell the story, the one from the book, which was terrific. All the extras and padding over the course of three films is diluting the story, and creating that muddled sense of things.
