'Hobbit' pals Legolas, Gandalf and Bard return in new 'Battle of the Five Armies' pics

23 July 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Peter Jackson's Middle Earth mega-franchise -- which started with the first "Lord of the Rings" film more than a decade ago -- is finally coming to a close this December.  And now we have our first peek at the final chapter, "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies." You won't see Bilbo, Smaug or any new characters, but seeing "Hobbit" vets Legolas, Gandalf and the Bard in action will still give you that ol' Middle Earth feeling.  In the first image, it looks like Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen) and the Bard (Luke Evans) see something in the sky. Smaug, perhaps? In a photo released previously, the Bard and Legolas (Orlando Bloom) have a handsome contest, while it looks like a small army is preparing for battle behind them. The film also stars Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, and the beautiful voice of Benedict Cumberbatch. "The Hobbit: Battle of »

Smaug is Ready to Strike in First Poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

23 July 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have released the first poster for Peter Jackson’s third and final instalment in The Hobbit franchise, The Battle of the Five Armies, a movie that they’re calling “The Defining Chapter”.

In the poster, we see Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) preparing to destroy Laketown, the location he set off for at the end of the last movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. With Bilbo Baggins and the dwarves still on the Lonely Mountain, only one person stands in the dragon’s way; Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans).

The first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will likely premiere at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, and should be online shortly after, so stay tuned to HeyUGuys for that.

The movie is set to be released on December 12th. Click on the poster below for the full-size version.

New Still From ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’

23 July 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s only the second image we’ve seen from the third part of The Hobbit trilogy, but it’s probably enough for fans to get excited about. In the shot we see Sir Ian McKellen and Luke Evans, probably on their guard as Smaug intends to attack Lake Town after the events of the last movie. The film was retitled The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies in April of this year, changing from The Hobbit: There And Back Again. Jackson argued the change was due to the decision to make 3 films instead of 2, thus Bilbo already being “there”, but I’d guess it was to include the word “battle” so as to appeal to a wider audience.

The Hobbit films have both been decent so far, but the clunky extension still feels unnecessary. This will no doubt put an end to the franchise for now, but we »

First Look at Gandalf in 'The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies'

22 July 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Comic-Con 2014 just a few days away, which will offer fans a sneak peek at The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Warner Bros. has released two new photos featuring Gandalf (Ian McKellen) interacting with the elf king Thranduil (Lee Pace), and another with the wizard getting ready for battle alongside Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans). Take a look, then read on for what writer/producer Philippa Boyens has to say about director Peter Jackson's final Middle Earth adventure.

Back in April, Warner Bros. announced that this final adventure was changing from The Hobbit: There and Back Again to The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which hints that this last Middle Earth tale will be more action-packed that its predecessors. Philippa Boyens revealed that fans don't remember what happens at the end of J.R.R. Tolkien's novel, which is much more intense than some may believe. »

The Hobbit Battle Of The Five Armies First Official Image

22 July 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We’ve seen very little from Middle Earth this year, but now things are starting to change (we hope) when it comes to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies. The first official image has been released and features Dumbledore and an Orlando Bloom lookalike. I’m hilarious, I know! Of course that’s Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Bard The Bowman (Luke Evans) looking like terror is about to reign down on them from above. If you’re heading to Comic-Con this weekend, I’d expect some form of teaser trailer and hopefully those of us stuck in internet land won’t have to wait too long more either!

Check Out Ian McKellen And Luke Evans In The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Image

17 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whatever your thoughts are on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy when compared to the director’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, you certainly can’t fault him for casting. This new trilogy, which concludes in December with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, has brought back Ian McKellen as the great wizard Gandalf and Orlando Bloom as archer Legolas, while starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon Smaug and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, among many, many others. Now, we’ve got a new image from the trilogy topper, highlighting McKellen and Evans as they gaze, awe-struck, off-screen at what I can only presume is The Hobbit‘s collective worldwide box office haul.

Granted, the shot isn’t the most revealing, but it’s a nice reminder that this movie is on its way. So much attention »
