I’m not even af Benedict Cumberbatch fan, but watching him doing his full-body mo-cap performance as The Hobbit’s Smaug is amaaaaaazing. Check it out after the jump!
That VOICE! The way he WRITHES ON THE GROUND! I have the weirdest boner right now.
On one hand, you have to admit Cumberbatch gives it his all. He’s lying on the floor, in a practically empty room, he’s looking at nothing and no one, and he’s still acting the hell out of the part of an ancient dragon threatening the unseen intruder who had the temerity to enter his lair. On the other hand, this is a video of Benedict Cumberbatch in a silver jumpsuit, lying on the floor and pretending to be a dragon, and it’s also hugely hilarious to us.
