Those who were a little disappointed in the first Hobbit movie may find something more to their liking in the second.

The Desolation of Smaug had its first screening last night in Hollywood, and while people are embargoed from talking about it until the 8th of this month, the initial reaction coming out of the screening points to a movie closer to what people were expecting following the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Here are some selected reactions form Twitter:

Apparently the movie does have a slightly shorter run-time than the first installment, which would make sense as this was originally going to be the last Hobbit film before splitting it off into a trilogy. It’ll be out in a couple weeks, and it will be released in HFR despite rumors to the contrary…
