In a big day of movie news, the official trailer for "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" has been released. We are reunited with Gandalf, Thorin, Bilbo, Tauriel and company, and of course the treacherous dragon, Smaug.
With a title and epic conclusion that is in store, a ton of action and fighting sequences were expected and that's exactly what we got. The tone overall is very dark and intriguing and a certain intensity increased as the trailer reached its conclusion. It definitely has a "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" vibe to it which is pretty damn exciting.
Check out the production details below:
"From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.
As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead. An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.
As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war."
