Today, I present to you the final trailer for the last film of The Hobbit trilogy. I present it to you with a great sigh, but not for the reason(s) you might be thinking 😩. I am not sighing out of sadness for the culmination of The Hobbit characters’ film journey. I am not sighing for what is. I am sighing for what could have been. As an absolute lover of the Lord of the Rings films (and I know The Hobbit is not LOTR), I am quite disappointed in what The Hobbit trilogy is. In my humble opinion (which means nothing by the way because after all “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out…where the doer of deeds could have done them better“), much of the time, effort, and money poured into The Hobbit was a grand waste. If you’ve read The Hobbit book, I’m certain you can see why. Either way, I retain hope for the Dol Guldur scenes in this – the last Hobbit film 😁.
Release date: December 17, 2014
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.
Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.
As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
