Regardless of your feelings about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (for me, the HFR 3D was the biggest detriment to the film), the stakes are going to be much bigger with the sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Smaug is one of the biggest beasties of all-time. He’s not only dangerous, but cunning, and his battle of wits with Bilbo (briefly glimpsed in the trailer) could be as good as any action scene. And the film is sure to have plenty of action. I honestly don’t know what will be left for The Hobbit: There and Back Again, but we’ll cross that bridge in 2014. For now, hope begins anew with the latest Hobbit film.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving 10 admit-two passes to a 3D (regular, not HFR) screening of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in Atlanta. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the film early and for free. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 2D, 3D, HFR 3D, and IMAX 3D on December 13th.

And here’s the official synopsis for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:
