This video is either A) Benedict Cumberbatch in a motion capture suit performing a scene for The Hobbit or B) The. Most. INTENSE commercial for acne spot treatment you’ve ever seen. If you answered A, congratulations… you have no imagination/are correct (however you wanna look at it). In this b-roll footage for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, we see Cumberbatch not just lending his rich baritone voice to the menacing dragon Smaug, but bringing a physical performance as well.
The middle film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy has been available on Blu-ray and DVD for some time, but the 3D release on those formats will be hitting shelves November 3rd. The final chapter, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, hits theaters December 17th.
