We’re a little over a month away from the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and the marketing continues to ramp up.  On Monday, we got a new trailer along with a live fan Q&A with Peter Jackson and the cast.  Yesterday, there was a new production blog, and today we have two more images along with the end credits theme, “I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran.  I presume that’s an abbreviated version of the full title, “I See Fire because It’s Coming out of the Mouth of the Giant Talking Dragon”.  Like a large portion of the marketing for Desolation of Smaug, these images highlight Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) because the characters are shiny and new.  As for the song, it doesn’t really do anything for me, but maybe it will work better after seeing the movie (I felt that way with Emiliana Torrini‘s “Gollum’s Song” from The Two Towers).

Hit the jump to check out the images and listen to the song.  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 2D, 3D, HFR 3D, and IMAX 3D on December 13th.
