The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ villain masters another menacing new role. Watch his character in action!

If you can’t stand the heat, you might not want to watch the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, as it’s got enough fire-power to put even the Game of Thrones dragons to shame. The voice of Benedict Cumberbatch‘s titular beast bellows in this two-and-a-half-minute look at the trilogy’s second installment, which lands in theaters Dec. 13.

The movie also features the return of many fan-favorite characters, including Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gandalf (Ian McKellen).
