The one thing that might make you yearn for the end of summer blockbuster season?

That would be the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s second Hobbit film, a clip that’s chock-full of action, pounding music, mid-air leaps, imposing CGI beasties, Evangeline Lilly as an elf warrior maiden, Orlando Bloom as your onetime crush object Legolas, Ian McKellen’s beard, Martin Freeman’s scared face, and Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular fire-breathing dragon.

Check out the trailer below:
