Is This Smaug From THE HOBBIT?

A mysterious statue may reveal the dragon from THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG.

There's a movie theater in Wellington that has a display area. In that display area you will usually find a statue that represents a Peter Jackson character. In the past there's been Tintin, Gandalf and Gollum. As of this weekend there's a new statue: a dragon.
