Billy Boyd to sing the end credits song for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

20 October 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Billy Boyd and company were responsible for one of the most suspense filled and dramatic moments in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Pippin’s heartful rendition of ‘The Edge of Night’ is one of my favourite moments and one of the best original songs to come out of the series. With that in mind it is no surprise young Peregrin Took has been invited back to test his vocal chords once again.

A recent announcement suggests that Lord of the Ring’s Pippin – a.k.a. Billy Boyd – will be taking on the challenge of singing the final Hobbit credits song. Considering previous Hobbit original songs have not quite lived up to the reputation of Oscar-winning Lotr songs like Annie Lennox’s ‘Into the West’, Boyd has the chance to make a real mark and round off the latest trilogy in award-winning style.

'Hobbit 3' Posters and Banners Tease Key Action Scenes

15 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a beautifully executed series of 9 character posters released throughout last week, we now get two more posters and three banners teasing key action sequences from the upcoming trilogy ending sequel The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.

Gandalf (Ian McKellen) lies amongst the rubble of war, bleeding from the head as Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) comforts him with a kiss in both a poster and a banner. In the second poster, we see Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, who has become obsessed with his reclaimed treasure as the Orcs march towards the Lonely Mountain. That moment is depicted in the second banner. And finally, we see Lee Pace as Legolas' father Thranduil, who gallantly leads the charge as part of the first army.

This December, The Hobbit trilogy concludes as Bilbo Baggins joins the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to keep »

'Hobbit 3' Poster Series Ends with Bilbo Baggins

14 October 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has come full circle with their character poster roll out for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, showcasing another one-sheet featuring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo Baggins was the first poster to debut last week, featuring the actor holding his trusty sword Sting, followed by Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly).

In The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Bilbo, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves have reclaimed their homeland, but, at the same time, they have also freed the deadly dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), who unleashes his fiery fury upon the untwitting residents of Lake-town. This group of men, dwarfs and elves must either unite or be destroyed as The Battle of the Five Armies begins.

8 Character Posters for 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Stare You Down

14 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the last several days Warner Bros. has been releasing a series of character posters promoting the December 17 release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the final film in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, which has basically become a punchline for everyone as of late. Hell, there was even a joke about it during the puppet sketch on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. The studio has dubbed this the "defining chapter" in the overlong franchise and who knows, maybe some redemption can still be found after the hours spent with Bilbo and the gang over the course of the Unexpected Journey and the Desolation of Smaug. I'm not expecting much, but perhaps those lowered expectations are exactly what this franchise needs. As for these posters, you get a look at Bard (Luke Evans), Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Thorn (Richard Armitage), Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly), Thranduil (Lee Pace) and, »

New The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Character Posters Featuring Legolas, Thorin, Tauriel, Bard, and Thranduil

13 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has been releasing a new Hobbit poster every day for some time now, so we figured now was a good time to round up the latest The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies character posters in one convenient location.  The concluding installment in Peter Jackson’s trilogy will no doubt feature a battle of epic proportions as the title suggests, and indeed Thorin (Richard Armitage) and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) look pretty roughed up in their posters.  The elves, curiously, don’t have a scratch on them.  Then again, when you’re as pretty as Orlando Bloom, Lee Pace, and Evangeline Lilly, it’s hard not to look good no matter the circumstances. Take a look at the latest The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies character posters after the jump.  The film also stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, and Benedict Cumberbatch. »

13 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. continues its daily poster roll-out for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which features the massive cast of characters in director Peter Jackson's final adventure. Today's one-sheet showcases Thranduil (Lee Pace), following last week's posters that featured Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly).

In the original J.R.R. Tolkien novel, Thranduil is the king of the Woodland Realm in Mirkwood Forrest, and he is also the father to Orlando Bloom's archer elf Legolas. Thranduil lead his elf forces into The Battle of the Five Armies, whose army, positioned on the south side of the Lonely Mountain, was the first to attack.

Last week, fans were given the opportunity to vote on which character poster will debut next, but it remains unclear which character will debut next. »

Tauriel, Thorin, Bard Posters for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

13 October 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Three more character posters for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies have been released. They feature Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. Last week the studio released posters for Bilbo, Gandalf, Legolas, and Galadriel. The posters all seem to have a very dark tone to them, and from what we've seen in the trailers and know from the classic J.R.R. Tolkien story, things will get very dark before the light comes. 

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the epic, defining chapter of The Hobbit trilogy, and it will close out the adventure of Bilbo Baggins, who has joined the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield for an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The movie hits theaters December 17th.

'Hobbit 3' Poster with Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel

12 October 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies continues to roll out even more character posters with a new look at Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel, following one-sheets featuring Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Luke Evans' Bard the Bowman.

Tauriel is a character created specifically for The Hobbit movies, having not appeared in J.R.R. Tolkien's original novel. She was created by director Peter Jackson and writer Fran Walsh, whose name literally means "Daughter of Mirkwood." She is the head of the Mirkwood Elven Guard, who was first introduced in last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Her introduction in last year's blockbuster hinted at a burgeoning relationship with archer elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom), although fans will have to wait and see how that potential romance unfolds when The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies hits theaters this December. »
