War breaks out in the new 'Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' trailer

Posted on

It doesn’t look like Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield, and company will have an easy end to their journey.

New Line Cinema has released a new trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, showcasing the all-out warfare that’s about to consume Middle-earth. Just about every major character from the last two films in The Hobbit trilogy makes at least a brief appearance, and a few tantalizing glimpses hint at what’s to come in the film’s 45-minute battle scene.

It’s “the last move in a master plan, a plan long in the making” according to Gandalf’s voiceover narration, and that plan looks to push just about everyone involved to their breaking points.

Involving a battle that looks to rival the final skirmish in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the KingBattle of the Five Armies has only one question to ask, as Gandalf so succinctly puts it: “How shall this day end?”
