Night worm / day worm Can't Post

Smaug's attack of Erebor and Dale in the prologue in AUJ was pretty nice, but for some reason it did not fit with what I imagined. Rereading the book, I finally realised the dragon attack in the book occured at night, which gave it a very different feel and atmosphere. The fact that the dwarves sing the verses of the Misty Mountain's cold describing that night attack ( "The winds were moaning in the night"), contrary to the film scene, is also odd. Anybody have an idea why that change was made? Are they keeping the night attack for Laketown? Another difference was that Smaug's attack in the film seemed less deadly : the survivors in the book were much fewer,
