The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

"This was the last move in a master plan… A plan long in the making." Well, the end of it all is almost here. Presumably, this will be the last time director Peter Jackson takes us back to Middle Earth on the big screen with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies concluding this trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic book following Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and the dwarves of Erebor. Now the final trailer has arrived and it's just as epic as you would imagine. We recently heard that the film will conclude with a 45-minute battle between the titular five armies, and we get to see part of that on display in spectacular fashion, with a mesmerizing tease in this trailer. Get ready. "Will you follow us one last time?"

Here's the final trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, direct from Warner Bros:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies right here.

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.

....Until they announce a prequel to the the prequel. Called Sauron Awakens: Revenge of the Orcs

They could do the Quinta Silmarillion which is a prequel to the Hobbit........

Mike on Nov 6, 2014


seriously - I want a movie about the wars with the witch-king of angmar......kick-ass stuff!

dan on Nov 6, 2014


It's gonna happen eventually. Look at the Star Wars franchise. Everyone though SW III would be the finale to the saga and now...many years later...they're continuing within the far away galaxy with a fresh story. They'll eventually go back to middle earth.

I think I speak for most of us when I say that we were frustrated that Peter Jackson turned one book into three movies. But I think I can also speak for most of us when I say we are impressed with the product so far and are excited for the final chapter.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 6, 2014


Agreed, though it doesn't feel as refined as the LotR.

Steven on Nov 6, 2014


I enjoyed the movies, but some scenes just go on forever. Peter Jackson has always been guilty of dragging out scenes though. (see King Kong)

TheOct8pus on Nov 6, 2014


King Kong was certainly longer than it needed to be but its my favourite Jackson movie.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 6, 2014


Agreed, here here! Though it was a little too long, I enjoyed every minute of it, thoroughly.

JBrotsis on Nov 6, 2014


I really don't think you should speak for anyone except yourself. Shoot that sounds rude. What I mean is, this is not the imagery I see in my mind when I read the book.

ik on Nov 6, 2014


I know what you mean, I made a bold prediction. but it is a movie, not a book. No one who loves a book enjoyed the movie as much,

Jon Odishaw on Nov 6, 2014


This is true.

ik on Nov 6, 2014


I think...The Hobbit movies are much better than the book. I love every part of it.

Dubmaster2010 on Nov 7, 2014


Cant help but think Jackson got the endings of the first two movies wrong to build up to this epic final chapter. The first should have ended with them getting almost to the mountain, say Bard's barge, the second then deals entirely with the dragon, but with something at the end to build upon what is to come.

Steven on Nov 6, 2014


the naysayers can bitch all they want......I'm so ready for this!

dan on Nov 6, 2014


Looks epic, I'm so excited for this to come out.

Justin R on Nov 6, 2014


I winced they initially said it was going to be another trilogy. Really though it's has been a good ride. Numero Tres vamanos!

DAVIDPD on Nov 6, 2014


I'm surprised Smaug wasn't in this trailer. In fact (as I didn't read the books), how early into the film do you think it'll be that Smaug is defeated? 'Cause it looks like the story is no longer about him anymore in this film.

JBrotsis on Nov 6, 2014


I think it'll be in the last bit. The war will have been fought, then they'll be like...oh yeah...there is still that dragon...shiiiit.

DAVIDPD on Nov 6, 2014


For the most part Peter Jackson is a visual director and I agree that he does tend to embellish on certain things and they can drag on for while, but damn, it has been beautiful to watch. I was afraid 3 movies was too much but I will be sad to see it end.

This is the enndnnnddddd. Well why not, be good to see it.

I think Christopher Tolkien is an upstanding sort of Oxford professor for bringing his father's main life central fictive narrative into public view. Whatever he thinks to do with the Silmarillion should be his affair (he's 90). As for future Tolkiens who may be guardians of his estate, I hope that, the Silmarillion being what I would argue is the fantasy field's most influential work's background material, they will see the opportunity to introduce this kind of more heavy fantasy to the non-literarilly oriented fans of the current wave of PJ movie popularity, and take more of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginary world into ken of the general public. I really don't think Peter Jackson gets enough credit for the effort he took (and for managing the expense involved) to bring Middle Earth to global theaters with more beauty and accuracy of Tolkien imagery than anybody really had a right to expect (that description is only fair). I imagine a series of 6-7 films made in the Jackson format, probably with a good number of different directors, to be released over a period of about a decade. Alternatively, if a product of the prerequisite quality can be made on a premium channel's television budget, two or more seasons of hour-long television episodes akin to the Game of Thrones series, amounting to the 8 parts (but not animated; that was tried in the 1980's LotR movie with a cinematic effect I personally found consterning): Part 1: Revolt of the Noldor A whirlwind tour of the making of Arda, from Music of the Ainur, the tens of thousands of years of work (if translated to years of the Sun) before the Spring of Arda and the fall of the Lamps, to the coming of the 144 "Adamic" elves, to the Chaining of Melkor. All this in about the time taken for the Unexpected Party in The Hobbit movie one. Then the main story line from creation of the Silmarills till the elves drive Melkor to Thangorodrim ending with a cut to Morgoth corrupting men in Hildorien. Part 2: Beren and Luthien The battle Dagor Bragollach, plus the self-titled story. Parts 3: The Children of Hurin The battle Nirnaeth Arnodiad, and so on like the book of the same name. Part 4: The Fall of Gondolin Hurin and the dwarven necklace the Nauglamir; Tuor, Maeglin, and a lot of Balrogs. Part 5: The War of Wrath Earendil. Ends with Eonwe judging the Belerianders, the awarding of Numinor, and the mis-apprehension of Sauron. Part 6: The fall of Numinor Starts with the forging of the Rings of Power, ends with the reshaping of Arda and the establishment of Gondor as chief power. Part 7 (optional): The Last Alliance Self-explanatory. The link to Lord of the Rings with Elendil and Isildur.
