While the previous two Hobbit films have been great I don’t think they really lived up to the grandeur of the Lord of the Rings films. However, with this new full length trailer landing for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies I think we may have a winner. At least we know that the rumors of a 45 minute battle to end the film are probably true considering the entire trailer is a battle.
Giving us our best look at what appears to be a movie that will be nothing but a bunch of armies fighting each other the trailer definitely ratchets up the tension. More importantly, and missing from the previous films in some ways, is the shifts in character. This looks like the film where we actually get to see some darkness in Thorin creep out.
Think the conclusion to the trilogy will stand once it arrives on December 17th?
