After the release of the main poster for the final part of the Hobbit trilogy, there was a vote on social media to decide what poster would be released next. unsurprisingly, Gandalf won that one!
It’s the sort of poster that could have been used for any of the previous 5 films that were set in Middle-earth. All you need to do is change the name of the film and bingo!
If we had seen it on a background of fire and destruction, like Bilbo’s then it would stand out more than just a generic character shot from the last 15, ish, years. I’ll probably say the same when Galadriel wins [ I’m going for the men vote here! ]
A new vote is now under way for another reveal tomorrow – visit The Hobbit Trilogy Official Facebook Page to cast your vote for Tauriel or Galadriel.
“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. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.
As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honour in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead. An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, 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 as five great armies go to war.
