In five months time the journey of The Hobbit comes to an end with The Battle Of The Five Armies. We’ve yet to see a trailer, but we do now have a poster, which has been released especially for Comic Con.
The image sees Bard The Bowman (Luke Evans) facing the enormous Smaug as he prepares to defend Laketown.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on December 17, 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.’
