A new trailer and sneak peek photos for the anticipated second "Hobbit" movie, Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," have been released and offer a first look at the dragon as well as of "LOST" actress Evangeline Lily in costume as the elf warrior Tauriel.
The red-headed character does not appear in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit," the book that inspired the trilogy. In the trailer, Lilly, who is from Canada, showcases a British accent -- and her fighting skills -- and appears with Orlando Bloom, who reprises his role as the platinum-haired elf Legolas from "The Lord of The Rings," the three-part sequel to "The Hobbit" that was released between 2001 and 2003 and made $2.9 billion worldwide.

A new trailer for Peter Jackson's film "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first of three films that serves as a prequel to his hit "Lord of the Rings" trilogy has been released and features part of a key scene with a popular and sinister character - Gollum.
The animated character, portrayed by Andy Serkis, is obsessed with the One Ring of power, which he calls his "precioussssss." It makes up a surprise part of a game of riddles he plays with the film's hero, the insecure but curious Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, and is a crucial element of the plot of both "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings."
The release date for the third and final film in Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" was announced by Warner Bros. and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures on August 31.
Unlike the first two films in "The Hobbit" trilogy, which will open during the winter holiday season, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" is slated to open in theaters during the summer, on July 18, 2014.
Director Peter Jackson announced on July 30 that "The Hobbit" will be released as a trilogy, rather than just two films.
"Upon recently viewing a cut of the first film, and a chunk of the second, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I were very pleased with the way the story was coming together," Jackson said in a statement. "We recognized that the richness of the story of 'The Hobbit,' as well as some of the related material in the appendices of 'The Lord of the Rings,' gave rise to a simple question: do we tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as filmmakers and fans was an unreserved 'yes.'"
The trailer for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first part of the prequel to the "Lord of the Rings" films, was recently released.
The fantasy sagas are based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien. "The Hobbit" depicts the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman. The character is the uncle of "Lord of the Rings" hero Frodo, who was played by Elijah Wood. Both are short, man-like beings with pointy ears and furry feet. In "The Hobbit," the older Baggins, who embarks on a quest to find a treasure guarded by a dragon.
Elijah Wood says the two-part "Hobbit" film, the prequel to "The Lord of The Rings," will be "fantastic," thanks to the innovative 3D animation techniques director Peter Jackson is using.
Wood reprises his role as Frodo in the "Hobbit" films, the first of which is set to be released in December 2012.
In a recent interview for his latest film, 'The Three Musketeers,' Orlando Bloom describes his character, Duke of Buckingham, as a "big spoiled brat" and explains how his costume helped him get into the role.
"One of the things that most attracted me to the project was that, you know, Jeremy [Bolt, the producer] and Paul [W.S. Anderson, the director] had thought of me for Buckingham. It was great because I get to be a cattish, rakish, rogue," Bloom said in an interview provided by Summit Entertainment. "He's a great kind of rascal of a character, a lot of fun."
Orlando Bloom is enjoying fatherhood since he and his wife, model Miranda Kerr welcomed their son Flynn on January 6 and says that bathing his son is especially nice, the actor said in an interview on ITV's morning show "Lorraine."
"I've been bathing with him a lot recently," Bloom told "Lorraine" host Kate Garraway. "It has been really cute. It's a really nice little moment."
Model Miranda Kerr took to her blog on the KORA Organics website to confirm reports about the recent birth of her son with actor Orlando Bloom.
"On the 6th of January I gave birth to our beautiful little son Flynn. We cherish him," Kerr wrote. The 27-year-old Victoria Secret model also confirmed the weight of the newborn, which some outlets speculated weighed in at 10 pounds.
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr reportedly welcomed their first child in a Los Angeles hospital on Friday and the baby boy weighs almost 10 pounds, the Australian Victoria's Secret model's grandmother says.
Bloom, who turns 34 on Thursday, and Kerr, 27 have not commented on the news of the birth or on what they planned on calling their newborn.
