The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

When the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies debuted at Comic-Con this summer, the entire room of Hall H was covered in a massive screen that became filled with a huge banner made up of several different scenes from the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic book. Now that banner has made its away online, and it's absolutely gorgeous. It shows Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) facing off with Smaug, Gandalf (Ian McKellen) having some kind of dramatic encounter with Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and of course Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.

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.

not a spoiler alert because the book has been out for a long time. "lets just make the main dwarves who die visible on the banner, and while we're at it, we'll only give those dwarves character arcs... it'll make their deaths more meaningful to the audience, who we'll presuppose, for the sake of our own laziness in the writing department, are all mildly mentally handicapped."

Mildly mentally handicapped?

And said by a "tree" for that matter? Not very nice indeed.

haha come on guys. These movies blow in so many ways. (there are SOME redeeming qualities, and, to be fair, they have had a couple of fun moments). Bad qualities: Writing, too much cgi, pointless action, no real tension, and characters we haven't gotten to know at all. With scripts this bloated you'd think we'd all be able to name every dwarf by now. To both top it off, and keep this related to the article, look at how bad this photoshop job is on this MULTI-MILLION dollar franchise. Everything is in focus, and look at the size of the elf girls FACE!!! I know kids in high school who could do better photoshop work than this... sorry if my "mildly mentally handicapped" comment offended you. (I really am, but I really do feel like hollywood has been dumbing everything down for their audiences. These films specifically are far from an exception). But remember, I could have just gone the extra mile and simply wrote "retarded" straight up. At least I softened the blow for you. Hollywood would have done the same.

I never read the books, but when I heard Kili is suppose to die next film, I was pretty saddened by it. He's a cool dude and I really enjoyed watching the brotherly bond between him and Fili.

6 someone who loves the Hobbit movies this banner is just plain...bad.

When will it end? Finally this year! You've heard me rave on this site over the years how much I loved the books as a child and now even I don't care about this movie. It's a shame.

Totally. I'll wait till DVD to complete the collection, but it saddens me how there simply isn't any spark of interest in these films from me.

Will Gollum's journey to Mordor be in this?

Jimmy Greenfield on Sep 15, 2014


I think he is already chilling in his cave.

DAVIDPD on Sep 15, 2014


Well from An Unexpected Journey to The Lord of the Rings there more story to him because that's the most important arc of The Hobbit

Jimmy Greenfield on Sep 20, 2014


Whatever the drama. At least we know Bilbo ends up alright.

DAVIDPD on Sep 15, 2014


Even though I'm looking forward to this last film, I'm not excited by the carnage that takes place. Not a fan of seeing beloved characters die (but then again, I did read that in the books years ago).

Terrible, Terrible photoshop on the faces.
