The first official still has been released by Warner Bros. for the third film in their Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. The title is a bit of a mouthful admittedly, but based on what the film will be about, its pretty apt.
The image itself features Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen) and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) looking concernedly towards something big in the distance. It might be Smaug the dragon or something even worse than him. Either way, it has enticed us with what is hopefully going to be one of the biggest finales of all time.
If you haven’t read the book, the battle itself features Goblins and Wargs as one army, duelling against another army made up of Dwarves, Elves, Men and Eagles. They are fighting for the right to control The Lonely Mountain and Smaug’s treasures within.
We can’t wait, but sadly the film isn’t released until December 12. Hopefully a trailer should be introduced soon which will hint at what else is to come.
