Back in July we saw the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the final film in the Hobbit trilogy and director Peter Jackson‘s lengthy stay in Middle-earth.
Now Warner Brothers Pictures has released the main trailer for the movie, which runs about two-and-a-half minutes. You can read a synopsis and watch the new trailer below.
From Academy AwardÂ®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes â€œThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,â€ the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
â€œThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armiesâ€ 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 Bilboâ€™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 â€“ 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: Battle of the Five Armies will be released on December 17th.
