If you weren't already planning on seeing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in theaters, Warner Bros. Pictures might have a good reason for you to show up. Aside from being the final installment of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, Forbes has heard that there will be some sort of teaser trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice attached to the film. It makes sense since Warner Bros. is behind both franchise films, and while the film will be nearly a year and a half away at that point, the film has been shooting for awhile, and fans are hungry for something. It might arrive online before the, so stay tuned. As for The Battle of the Five Armies, it sounds like that will be epic too.
EW has revealed The Battle of the Five Armies will end with a 45-minute battle sequence:
The art above is from the epic finale, and while that might sound exhausting, Jackson says, "We have a rule that we’re not allowed to go more than two or three shots of anonymous people fighting without cutting back to our principal characters. Otherwise the audience just ends up with battle fatigue.” It sounds like we might end up with fatigue anyway with a battle that long, but when you have five armies fighting at The Lonely Mountain, it's not going to be a quick fight. Surely it will look gorgeous, but these movies are already long, so hopefully it's worth our time. For more on the battle, check out the full story right here. Thoughts?
