Our army of spies and crebain have alerted us to its existence, and a recording of it is already floating about around on the internet. The clip is, in fact, a significant part of one of the scenes screened at the worldwide Fan Event last week.
[TRANSCRIPT WITH SPOILERS]“Hello MTV!”
Martin Freeman: Hello MTV. I hope you’re enjoying the European Music Awards. I’m excited to share with you an exclusive look at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Don’t miss it when it comes to theatres everywhere, beginning December 13th.
And now, here’s an exclusive look.
Legolas: You were tracking the Company of 13 dwarves. Why?
Tauriel: Answer the question, filth.
Orc (in an Orcish dialect): I do not answer to dogs, She-Elf!
Legolas: I would not antagonise her.
Tauriel: You like killing things, orc? You like death? Then let me give it to you.
Thranduil (in Sindarin): Enough! Tauriel, leave! Go now.
Thranduil: I do not care about one dead dwarf. Answer the question. You have nothing to fear. Tell us what you know and I will set you free.
Legolas: You had orders to kill him. Why? what is Thorin Oakenshield to you?
Orc: The dwarf runt will never be king again.
Legolas: There is no King under the Mountain, nor will there ever be.
Thranduil: None would dare enter Erebor whilst the dragon lives.
Orc: You know nothing, your world will burn.
Legolas: What are you talking about? Speak!
Orc: Your time has come again. My master serves The One. Do you understand me, elfling? Death is upon you. The flames of war are upon you.
