Earlier today, New Line and Warner Bros. Pictures released a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the final installment in director Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit film trilogy.
Now, USA Today has revealed a new image featuring the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Thranduil (Lee Pace) from the upcoming film. Check it out here below.
The USA Today article includes an interview with screenwriter/producer Philippa Boyens. Here’s a snippet:
“It’s very much a ‘shock and awe’ by the enemy,” Boyens says, “and it’s pretty devastating” on Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his dwarf pals, who are trying to reclaim their gold-filled mountain kingdom of Erebor.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters on December 17, 2014.
