Well, friends, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
is finally out in theaters today! It's about time, right? Now the stars of the movie have been quite busy on the promotional circuit in the past few weeks, and none more so than Richard Armitage. The British actor attended press junkets and premieres in Los Angeles, Berlin, and finally in Madrid over the past two weeks. On Wednesday, December 11, after making their way from Berlin, Armitage and co-star Luke Evans hit up the Spanish premiere of the The Hobbit
at the Kinepolis cinema in Madrid, Spain, after a day of interviews and press junkets. Then, to finish off their promotional duties the two attended the 40th Principales Awards where they presented an award to singer Ricky Martin on Thursday. Busy bees indeed, but now the actors can take a moment to rest and watch as their latest movie heads to the top of the Box Office for opening weekend!

Warner Bros. continues to promote their upcoming blockbuster The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
this week, and actor Luke Evans is definitely doing his part on the promotional circuit. Yesterday, both Evans and his co-star Richard Armitage did yet another round of press junkets - this time in Madrid, Spain, where they also headlined the Spanish premiere of the movie at the Kinepolis cinema. Before that, the two went from the world premiere of the movie last week in Los Angeles to Berlin, Germany on Monday, December 9 for a premiere and press junkets there.
In Berlin, Luke and Richard were joined for promotional duties by cast mates Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Aidan Turner, Graham McTavish, Dean O'Gorman, Adam Brown, and Sylvester McCoy among others. But, for the Madrid premiere, Evans and Armitage took on promotional duties by themselves, with the two even attending the 40th Principales Awards to present an award to Ricky Martin earlier today. No big thing when you have a HUGE movie to promote I guess!

Actor Richard Armitage was in attendance last night as Warner Bros. held the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
in Hollywood. The 42-year-old British actor, who is also known for his roles in MI-5
) and the original Strike Back
, and who is one of our very favorite actors, looked handsome in a grey three-piece suit for the premiere. The event was held at the TCL Chinese Theatre and was also attended by many of Armitage's fellow cast members, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Luke Evans, Evangeline Lilly (in a lovely gown!), Aidan Turner, Dean O'Gorman, Stephen Fry, and Manu Bennett. The film's director Peter Jackson was also in attendance.

Hello, friends! I hope you got to watch the Fan Event Warner Bros. held on Monday to celebrate their upcoming release The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
. It was a fun 50 minutes for those watching at home, but those fans lucky enough to be at the participating theaters in person were treated to more Q&A and extras after we signed off. That's okay, we still got to see actors Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Andy Serkis, Evangeline Lilly, and Jed Brophy as they answered fan questions via satellite from theaters in NYC, London, Los Angeles, and Wellington, New Zealand. Sometimes we're reminded how awesome the internet is!
