First Epic Poster for 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Debuts
The Defining Chapter. It all comes down to this. Will Peter Jackson redeem himself with the third and final movie in The Hobbit trilogy? It looks like that's what they want us to think. Warner Bros has unveiled the first official poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, featuring an epic fire-engulfed Smaug the Dragon in a stand off with Bard the Bowman, played by Luke Evans. This is an awesome poster to debut, even though it's another "from the back" hero shot (which is the popular poster trend nowadays). With Comic-Con kicking off this week, we expect a trailer, more posters, and plenty more Hobbit hype soon.
Here's the full-size poster for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies with Smaug & Bard.
For reference, here's the original tweet where the new poster came from - also including Comic-Con details.

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in 48FPS 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters in HFR, IMAX & 3D on December 17th later this year. It all ends in December - see you then.
