New Banners for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Synopsis For The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug:
I'm truly looking forward to the second installment of Peter Jackson's film adaption of J.R.R. Tolkien's book, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug.
Looking for some clarification, tho.
In interviews with the creators of The Hobbit film trilogy regarding the character of "Tauriel," played by Evangeline Lilly, it was made clear that she was NOT to be a romantic interest for Legolas (Orlando Bloom).
It was established both that Tauriel was "the redhead" and that she was created for the purpose of establishing a "female presence" in the Hobbit films.
Why then I must ask, is Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel featured prominently in the promo shots, in the trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and in photo stills where she and Legolas are exchanging come hither looks toward one another?
It couldn't because sex sells, could it? Or, have the producers of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug decided that the film could use a little romance in addition to the abundant bromance(s)?
