The final instalment of The Hobbit trilogy gets a long teaser trailer.
Film studios tend to build hype for their movies with a carefully planned marketing campaign beginning months before the scheduled release date. An early stage of these campaigns is to release a small teaser of what to expect from the film, these are usually 30 to 40 seconds before a full trailer a short time after. We tend not to bother with teasers on the site as they offer little and we’re happy to wait for a full trailer a few days later under usual circumstances.
The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is a little different though. The teaser drops in at a pretty hefty one minute fifty, the length of many full trailers. Still, I suppose the film will be three weeks long so there’s no doubt plenty of footage to pull from.
The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies forms the final part of Bilbo Baggins adventure and hits cinemas in December.
“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.
