New The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Images: Luke Evans Prepares for War

29 July 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off yesterday’s teaser trailer debut, Warner Bros. has released a few new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies images for director Peter Jackson’s final installment in his J.R.R. Tolkein saga.  This third Hobbit film will obviously cover the concluding events of the book, but will also likely cover much more ground from Tolkein’s appendices, as we glimpsed some truly epic footage of Lee Pace’s Thranduil doing battle and Ian McKellen’s Gandalf in a rather precious position in yesterday’s trailer.  I still don’t think the Hobbit films are near the quality of Jackson’s masterful Lord of the Rings trilogy, but during the Hobbit panel at Comic-Con last weekend, I did get the sense that Jackson really aims to go out on a high note with this one.  Here’s hoping he succeeds.

Beautiful first teaser trailer for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies’

28 July 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The final chapter of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy has its first teaser trailer and it is fantastic. The Battle of Five Armies promises to be an epic conclusion to the story of The Hobbit, while also being a transition to Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, some of the greatest films of all time. Though the decision to split J.R.R. Tolkien’s 300-page novel into three movies was highly controversial for some, it happened and it is time to accept the films for what they are. Though The Hobbit was never going to reach the towering heights of The Lord of the Rings, it has been a fun and nostalgia filled return to Middle-earth. The trailer is haunting and emotional, with a fair share of beautiful imagery, and a rendition of “Steward of Gondor” from The Return of the King, as song by Billy Boyd’s Peregrin “Pippin” Took. »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Trailer and Poster: Peter Jackson’s Trilogy Concludes in Epic Fashion

28 July 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies trailer for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy.  This is the trailer they showed us at Comic-Con on Saturday, and it's interesting to see how the prequel trilogy is trying to pull into The Lord of the Rings by using "The Steward of Gondor", which was sung by Pippin (Billy Boyd) in The Return of the King.  The song still works here because it's sad and somber, but the line that sticks with me from this trailer is when Thorin asks his company, "Will you follow me one last time?"  It's a line that's really directed towards the audience, but there's a weariness to it that's surprising.  It's almost like saying, "Well, we've already come this far.  May as well finish it out."

Must Watch: 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' First Trailer

28 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Will you follow me... one last time?" The beginning of the end. Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the grand finale in his Middle Earth series, and it looks to be a very nostalgic and exciting ending. Martin Freeman returns as Bilbo, Luke Evans as Bard, Richard Armitage as Thorin, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, and everyone else they have in the illustrious cast. As this is the first teaser, it doesn't reveal too much footage, but does hint at how epic the "Battle of the Five Armies" will be and how he's trying to match the tone of Lord of the Rings, so it can lead right into Fellowship. I'm really looking forward to seeing this sure-to-be spectacular Hobbit finale. First teaser for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies direct via »

28 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is likely to be our final return to Middle-earth for a very long time, and smart money says Peter Jackson has saved the best ’til last.

He’s been at the helm from the very beginning, and over a decade and five films later, he’s seeing us through to the end.

The final instalment in The Hobbit Trilogy arrives in cinemas this December, bringing a close to one of the most successful franchises of all time, and as Jackson recently promised, Warner Bros. has debuted our first good look at the epic fantasy blockbuster with the first teaser trailer.

Martin Freeman leads the cast for one final outing, joined by Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Sylvester McCoy, and Mikael Persbrandt, with of course many, many more completing the substantial ensemble. »

8 things we learned at the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Comic-Con panel

27 July 2014 9:51 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Super Saturday marked what could be director Peter Jackson's final Tolkien-related Comic-Con presentation. Perhaps fittingly then, the panel proved to be both a look back at both trilogies, a thank you to fans, and a look ahead at the final film of the Hobbit series, The Battle of the Five Armies.

The prolific New Zealander took that stage in Hall H along with moderator (and obsessive Tolkienite) Stephen Colbert, screenwriter and producer Philipa Boyens and popular cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Graham McTavish, Andy Serkis, and Elijah Wood. Notably missing this time around? Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage and Ian McKellen. Both Freeman and Armitage are starring in London theatre productions at the moment, "Richard III" and "The Crucible" respectively, while McKellen is filming his next project.
