Bilbo & Sting on New 'The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies' Poster
"I have… I have never used a sword in my life." We're getting closer and closer to the grand finale of The Hobbit, with Peter Jackson's third and final movie The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies due out in theaters in just a few more months (starting December 17th). We've seen one full trailer so far, waiting for another one to hit soon (likely attached to Interstellar), and one teaser poster with Bilbo before. But now Warner Bros is releasing a series of character posters for The Battle of Five Armies and they've started with Bilbo - who is brandishing Sting like he definitely has handled a sword and knows how to kick some orc (and spider) ass with it. With a huge ensemble cast we expect to see many more posters soon. Check this one out.
Here's the first character poster showing Bilbo in The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies from Twitter:
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.
This should be "I can't wait!", but for this series I feel more like "Okay let's get this over with already."

My feelings too. You can't say you won't go see it, but you wish you could

Peter Jackson needs a lesson in brevity.

The article title is very misleading. I was hoping to see a poster of Bilbo and actual Sting, from The Police.

So crispy. Is this poster in 48 fps?

He's making it look like I'M the antagonist in this one. That's unsettling.
