And yet I keep thinking ... *major spoilers*

And yet I keep thinking ... *major spoilers* Can't Post

I know that most of you are going to hate me for bringing this up one more time but I just can't help thinking about Andy Serkis' interview with TotalFilm.

The topic in question is the famous (or maybe now "infamous"?) topic of Smaug's attack on Lake-town in DOS or TABA.Crazy

In the aforementioned interview (which you can find here around 0:55, the interviewer asks the cast and Peter Jackson about their most anticipated scenes in 'The Desolation of Smaug'.

Andy Serkis' response is clearly shrouded in mystery - he himself states that he can't reveal much however (and with a smirk forming over his face), he mentioned that "the Lake-town sequences are pretty extraordinary."

It's pretty vague and general as it may include three major sequences that we know of:

-The Bard/Master general storyline
-The Legolas/Orc-fighting narrative
-The Destruction of Lake-town

Out of these three, we can eliminate the first one and be quite certain that Andy is primarily referring to a specific action sequence, because as he continues to discuss in the interview, he says that "no matter how big the canvas is ... it's always about the small things" (or something similar).

And whilst we can't be certain of how the other two sequences will play out and who it will involve, I can't help but think that Andy is referring to Smaug's attack on Lake-town.

There, you certainly have a big action sequence where a lot of characters come into play and who, by then, the audience will be strongly rooting for: Bard, Bain, the general population, etc ...

I'm not saying it's a definite, because I myself am still torn between the DOS and TABA debate ...

I know, I know - "just wait for the film to be released", I agree. But I'm just getting this off my chest!Smile

Apologies! Blush
