‘The Hobbit: Five Armies’ Review: Pete Hammond On The Journey’s End

‘The Hobbit: Five Armies’ Review: Pete Hammond On The Journey’s End
Peter Jackson’s great journey there and back again with J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy tales comes to an action-filled and excellent end in The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, as I say in my video review above.

This one features, of course, series regulars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Richard Armitage, Christopher Lee and Evangeline Lilly. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the acquisitive and vengeful dragon Smaug.

Jackson, who has been creating movies based on Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books for more than 15 years now, co-wrote the script with his usual collaborators Philippa Boyens and wife Fran Walsh, along with Guillermo Del Toro. Jackson, Walsh, Carolynne Cunningham and Zane Weiner produced. The film, which is being distributed by Warner Bros., opens today in the United States following strong overnight previews in the United States and a huge overseas bow last weekend,

Peter Jackson Revamps 3rd Hobbit Movie Title – The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema jointly announced on Friday that the much-anticipated final film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy adaptation of the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, has now been titled The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies.

The film, previously titled “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” will be released worldwide December 17, 2014, with select international territories releasing on December 10, 2014.

Peter Jackson stated, “Our journey to make ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo’s own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we’ve gone along. ‘There and Back Again’ felt like the right name for the second of a two-film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced — after all, Bilbo has already arrived
