5 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The official video for Billy Boyd's end theme to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has been released.

'The Last Goodbye' will run over the end credits of the final film in the trilogy.

The Lord of the Rings actor has already lent his voice to Peter Jackson, performing 'Edge of Night' in Return of the King, which was also used in one of the trailers for Five Armies.

Boyd who played Pippin Took in the trilogy co-wrote the song with filmmakers Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.

Exclusive Hobbit Behind-The-Scenes Still

14 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Peter Jackson has edited the upcoming issue of Empire - on newsagents' shelves next week (November 27) - and to celebrate, there will be an ever-so-tantalising drip feed of Hobbity goodness here on EmpireOnline.com. Yesterday, there was Jackson himself and the subscribers' cover; today, there's a behind-the-scenes shot that proves why Richard Armitage is the king.As you may already know, this finale finds the Dwarves, led by Armitage’s Thorin Oakenshield, reclaiming the vast wealth of their mountain home of Erebor, but all is definitely not going to go smoothly. In taking back the mountain, they unleashed the terrifying dragon Smaug, who has flown off to attack the humans of the nearby Lake-town after realising that they helped the dwarves.That’s not all that Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and his comrades have to worry about, because an ancient enemy has returned in force to Middle-earth.

Thorin's Regal Armor in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

22 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is less than a month away, and I eagerly await its 45 minute end battle sequence. The UK based Empire Magazine has released the cover for their January issue online. The cover features the 6' 2" Richard Armitage looking very short as Thorin. He's wearing "Regal Armour" (UK spelling of armor) that's gold, geometric, and 100% hardened dwarven badass.

Peter Jackson finally ends his 17 year long odyssey adapting J.R.R. Tolkien's works for the screen. Other than The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun (what's with the long titles?), which is already in post production, Jackson has not announced what he's doing next. I vote Star Wars: The Old Republic, but that's just my wishful thinking.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be in theaters December 17th (USA). »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Billy Boyd had this to say about how they wanted to say goodbye to audiences with this song.

"We had to get the song just right, to send the audience out of the movie theater in the most perfect way we could. But I don't »

Listen to a Preview of Billy Boyd’s Closing Credit Song for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

12 November 2014 11:35 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A few weeks ago we found out about Billy Boyd’s (aka Pippin) plan to perform “The Last Goodbye,” the closing credit song he co-wrote for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and now we’ve got a sample of the piece to share.  The song may not have the same effect as Boyd’s performance of “The Stewart of Gondor” in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King because Boyd won’t be on screen and the song also won’t be paired with such stunning imagery, but Boyd’s got an incredible voice so “The Last Goodbye” should still make for a nice treat after the action of The Battle of the Five Armies closes out the trilogy. Hit the jump to give the preview of “The Last Goodbye” a listen.  The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters on »
