Five New Pictures from 'The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies'

31 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has released five new pictures from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and granted, they are pretty much all screen captures from the first trailer, but I felt some of you may appreciate the shot of Smaug up top since capturing anything too clearly from that scene in the trailer was a little tough. Arriving in theaters on December 17, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the final chapter in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy and it begins as the dwarves may have reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, but Smaug reacts with fiery doom, meanwhile the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain and the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide - unite or be destroyed. The film stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies - 4k Trailer and Ultra Hi-Res Stills

29 July 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If the title change from There and Back Again to The Battle of the Five Armies wasn’t indication enough that director Peter Jackson plans to end The Hobbit trilogy with a bang, the teaser trailer that was screened during Warner Bros’ Comic-Con panel and that was released yesterday will surely win over those who have been less than impressed with the previous two films. If you have the display to support it, you can now watch the teaser in glorious 4k resolution. Warner Bros. has also released (via: Collider) uncompressed stills from the trailer that allow you to see every pore on Martin Freeman’s face, no magic ring necessary. 

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.

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.

Watch: First Trailer for ‘The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies’

28 July 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The two-minute trailer includes snippets of preparation for battle by the armies, followed by several fast-paced fight scenes and concludes with Richard Armitage’s Thorin asking, “Will you follow me one last time?”

The final “Hobbit” movie was featured as a significant component of Warner Bros.’ panel at Comic-Con on Saturday along with the first preview of the trailer. The Hobbit’s Facebook page also included some preview footage prior to the trailer’s release.

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. »
