The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies brings war to Middle Earth with the rise of a familiar foe Sauron connecting The Hobbit with the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is the ‘defining chapter’ in the series as Goblins, Elves, Men, Eagles and Dwarves attempt for control of Erebor, The Lonely Mountain. There is also a small matter of it’ s current occupant the dragon Smaug whose determined that his new keep and the treasure that lies in it will still be his. But as Thorin becomes blinded by his plight to regain Erebor, an unseen enemy rises, Sauron who sends the Orcs to Erebor, but will men, Elves and Dwarves unite or face death?
On evidence of this 2 minute trailer we might just have a mighty battle to rival The Two Towers Helm’s Deep battle, a battle that looks spectacular. With this footage you can now appreciate the film’s new name and the song Pippin (Billy Boyd) sang before the Battle of Minas Tirith in The Return of The King delivers some homage to the affray too.
