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 honour 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.

"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" is released in UK cinemas 12 December 2014


 I don't know about you, but I'm pretty damn excited for this! Like most of the Internet, I wasn't keen on splitting The Hobbit up into three books, but now we're at the conclusion I can't wait!

  1. Looking forward to the last one! And sad the Middle Earth journey will be over.

    1. Aww, that is a little sad. Though chances are Peter Jackson will be asked to do something based on the Simarillion - that I'd love to see.

  2. Oh man, I cannot wait for this to come out! I had a Lord of the Rings marathon the other day, and it made me miss that world so much. Bring on December!

    1. A LotR marathon? Wowza, nicely done! The last time I attempted that it was 14 hours! I'm hoping to do a full Middle-Earth-fest when The Battle of Five Armies is released :)

  3. I'm so super excited for this! But also sad because i know how it ends. And like Alex said, then we're done

    1. Very true, but I don't think that's the last we've seen of Jackson's Middle Earth movies. Give it time :)

    1. It's one of my favourites from the Hobbit series :)

  5. The poster looks awesome. I'm pretty darn excited for this. Great post! :)

    1. Thanks Hanna - the only trouble is we've still 5 months to go!
