The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has had its seventh TV spot released online; in which Bilbo finds himself in a face-off with the dragon.

Director Peter Jackson has been teasing fans with the dragon in recent spots, but showed very little of Smaug on-screen. However, in this spot, his presence is most definitely felt.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice behind Smaug and sounds purely sinister, especially, when he hisses “the darkness is coming”.

Check out the 30 second preview, below:

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is the second chapter in the Hobbit trilogy, and will open in the UK and US on December 13 2013.
