What if Desolation of Smaug Flops Can't Post

Hey I am new and I wanted to post what I am worried about. I am just worried that Desolation of Smaug will flop With the reception (mixed) that the first Hobbit movie got and the bored people in the movie theaters. These people might not go see DOS in movie theaters. And the general audience might not be as willing to see the second one either seeing it first hand or after hearing about the reception of the first. The general audience includes people who went because it was related to LOTR and didn't like it might not come back. Leaving only the people who truly enjoyed the first movie and die hards willing to see if it gets better. With only half those people or less coming back DOS might actually flop. I hope I am wrong.

I hope this makes sense.

I want to hear other peoples opinons.
