Key members of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies cast joined director Peter Jackson at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con to talk about all things Hobbit. They also introduced the teaser trailer for the final film of the epic Hobbit series and, fortunately, that trailer’s now online for all of you who didn’t get a ticket to Comic Con this year. Coming to theaters in High Frame Rate 3D, regular old 3D, IMAX, and 2D formats, Warner Bros is releasing the last Hobbit adventure on December 17, 2014.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) 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 (Ian McKellen), 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.
