The first fiery poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Jul. 23, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

The first poster for THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES Dragon Standoff Before this Saturday Comic-Con panel Warner Bros. has released the first poster for Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES. It’s being called “The Defining Chapter” according to the great poster, and it certainly looks that way. The forthcoming battle will set up Middle-earth for the events in that take place in THE LORD OF THE RINGS saga.

While my Conesus of The Hobbit movies films so far could be summed up with a “meh”, if this is to be Peter Jackson’s last journey, you just know he’s going to go all out. The standoff between Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) has to be spectacular right? So long Lake-town.

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on December 17th 2014.

Too bad Bard is not actually going to use a bow like in the book and in the poster, the whole Dwarven Windlass thing is a bit too much in my opinion. I know the action should be good but having him tethered to one spot only able to shoot if he happens to fly into his arc of fire is dumb. Who can forget the iconic scene from the animated Hobbit when Bard fights Smaug, ah going to miss that.

Though maybe the the windlass will be destroyed and he'll have to be a badass and shoot that giant arrow from a normal bow :-P not bloody likely...

Now THAT'S a great poster.

I enjoy the Hobbit films just as much as the original trilogy. I thought Desolation of Smaug was one of the best films of last year and the cliffhanger ending absolutely killed me in wanting more and seeing what happens next.

But yeah, December can't get here soon enough.

Beautiful poster.

I'm not even a LOTR or Hobbit fan but this poster makes me want to see this movie. Wow.

This one will be good. Maybe not Return of the King good, but good nonetheless. That is definitely one kick-ass poster.

I loved the Hobbit films (yes I read the book - more than once) and I don't think PJ is stretching the book because he is not adapting the book - he is making an LOTR prequel trilogy!
The stuff he added is not beyond the realm of what goes on in Middle Earth. He expanded some of the characters - which is a good thing and he is turning simple story elements into all out action sequences!
This series is equal to the first series (if not better - I like the hobbit storyline better than LOTR -

Poor Photoshop

Seeing the thumbnail, I thought this was the poster for a B movie by The Asylum studio. It's not the ugliest poster ever but the colours and the photoshop are really bad. And I'm so sick of the blue/green vs. yellow palette.

Do you mean the image at th etop of the page, or the bottom of the page? Because I'll agree, that top image is pretty bad. But that's not the poster they're talking about.

@HoyleHaw I meant the actual poster (but you're right that banner is way more disastrous). Like I said, it's not a catastrophe, but the elements are not really well blended together (fake airbrush smoke and blurry fire from low res pics). And shouldn't a movie called The Hobbit have at least one Hobbit on the poster. Obviously I hate those Hobbit movies, so I guess I'm biased, sorry. I always thought the first Fellowhip teaser poster showing only Frodo holding the Ring was perfect. Anyways, I
