The trailer for the final movie in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” debuted at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. Watch that full video featuring Martin Freeman (“Fargo,” “Sherlock”) as Bilbo Baggins one final time.
Originally titled “There and Back Again,” this installment of “The Hobbit” now has a title that reflects the central battle of the story. The dwarves have reclaimed their homeland from Smaug, but these actions have driven the dragon to seek revenge on the defenseless inhabitants of Lake-town. To make matters worth, Sauron is sending legions of Orcs to attack the Lonely Mountain.
It’s a lot for a hobbit, even one with friends and allies, to face.
“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” will be released in Dec. 2014.
