Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is.
When Tauriel and Legolas arrive in Gundabad and she questions him about what is beyond the fortress, he answers: "An ancient enemy". This enemy is the Witch-King of Angmar, leader of the Nazgul. Angmar was the kingdom that existed beyond Gundabad. The word means "house of iron". See more »

If Peter did it for money - I understand. I hope he is happy for taking the money from people earning 250 EUR per month in my country, and that is with the story which is about how gold eventually corrupts everything. In a way, he proved the point, didn't he?
But, if Peter truly believes that THIS was the Hobbit, than something is seriously wrong with his reading and directing skills.
Hollywood at its worst, 144 minutes of violence based on anti-war children book. Could there be a bigger nonsense than this?!
Fortunatelly, this gives an opportunity for someone to make a good Hobbit movie soon.
