Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
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.
Despite being one of the main antagonists in the second movie, and featured in the cliffhanger, Smaug barely appears in the final trailer, nor does he appear much at all in the final movie, save the first eleven minutes, and a fleeting shot later on. See more »

[Thranduil's army of Mirkwood Elves arrives in Dale]
My lord Thranduil. We did not look to see you here.
I heard you needed aid.
[a carriage full of food approaches and the citizens of Lake-town rush to the carriage in relief]
You have saved us. I do not know how to thank you.
Your gratitude is misplaced. I did not come on your behalf. I've came to reclaim something of mine.

If you haven't read The Hobbit and/or if you like the first two movies: I envy you of sorts...
If someone had told me some years ago that I would consider walking out from a Tolkien movie opening night, I would have slapped them with a cod. Or a salmon. The Hobbit trilogy is crap.
It's little more than a long list of invented battles and love stories to attract a widest possible audience, as well as loads of idiotic storyline to make the story slide into the Lord of the Rings movies as smooth as an Elven ass.
I understand that some adaption is required from book to screen, but when dealing with a book more or less only surpassed by the Bible and the IKEA catalogue, one should tread carefully.
Do yourself a favor. Read the book. Let your mind be the big screen.
