The holiday movie season is fast upon us, and yup, that means there's ANOTHER Lord of the Rings hitting theaters.
The final trailer for the
sequel prequel The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies was just released, and it looks epic!
The film picks up right after the events of The Desolation of Smaug. Our hero, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) finds himself (spoilers ahead) …
…dealing with having released the terrible dragon upon Middle Earth. As Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) wreaks his havoc, another enemy emerges.
Sauron, the big baddie from the first LOTR trilogy, is planning to unleash his army of orcs in an attempt to seize power.

There are epic, giant battles that made the first films so outrageous and, hopefully, more screentime from hunky elves like Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Thranduil (Lee Pace). Check out the trailer below:
The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies opens in theaters on December 17, 2014.
