The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug synopsis Can't Post

So my synopsis, eh?
PROLOGUE: Film will start off with Gandalf finding Thrain (probably not at Dol Godur) and Thrain foreshadowing the Necromancer and Smaug as great evil things, with the depiction of how the Necromancer revived Azog or something along those lines, then he gets the key.
ACT 1: The company walking down from the Carrock, meeting Beorn. This will reintroduce the characters and their quest. You meet the character of Beorn, and they stay there for a while. Azog and his gang will possibly ambush them but with Beorn they win, Thorin killing Azog which leads into the revenge of Bolg. This will take up about 20 minutes.
Gandalf leaves and we will follow him to Dol Godur, some White Council stuff will happen. Then we follow the rest of the Company through Mirkwood; the river, the deer's, then spiders. They will make this feel very magical and isolated, taking up about half an hour which is justified with all the material (Bilbo properly proving himself, Bombur poisoned, climbing the tree, montages of walking etc).
ACT 2: Then they're captured by the elves, taken to the halls. Here we meet a new culture, Legolas and Tauriel, get more stuff on Thranduil, tension between Elves and Dwarves. Montages of Bilbo stalking through the kingdom trying to free them, then the escape with the barrels. Another half an hour of film right there?
With Barrels being the midpoint, we will then cut to Gandalf and the White Council, doing some more stuff, Nazgul tombs possibly and Dol Godur exploration. Then Laketown and the King Under the Mountain returning, meeting the Master, developing Bard as a hero, new culture.
ACT 3:Then the desolation of Smaug, more possible flashbacks, entering the mountain. Bilbo meeting Smaug which will be great, stealing the Arkenstone, Smaug attacks mountain side; this will show the terror of the dragon. Smaug will be extended quite a bit, because all the marketing will be around him.
All that is a given, but this is where the speculation begins.
I think this is where we will get the actual assault on Dol Godur, capping that storyline off. This will act as the action climax. Meanwhile (possibly intercut) we get Smaug flying off to Laketown with the Dwarves playing in the gold whilst Bilbo is there worried about where the Dragons is gone.
The end? If the dragon doesn't die in DOS, and dies at the beginning of TABA, doing the trailers for TABA without spoiling anything could be tricky, so idk.
That's my thoughts :) your views?

                I think the climax of the Smaug thread is far better suited to Film 3... Kendalf Send a private message to Kendalf Dec 29 2012, 12:47am
