The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has a title logo

May. 1, 2014by:

It was just last week when THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN, the third part of director Peter Jackson's trilogy, got its new title THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES. Well, it’s now cemented in logo form!

This logo isn’t bursting with excitement, but it’s something else to keep us going until the anticipated final chapter arrives where humans, Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, and Wargs battle the hell out of each other; I can’t wait.  As someone who was a little perturbed at the notion of three movies for one (310 page) book, I can admit that I've become a big fan of THE HOBBIT series of movies and have nothing but optimism for its finale.  Then I just have to wait for the 24-disc edition of Peter Jackson's six movies (not a real thing).

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES will be out in theaters on December 17, 2014.

Nah, the title still sucks.

I'm not even going to get into what I think of the movies (okay, much: I loved them, period). All I have to say is, 'There and Back Again' is the most fitting subtitle there ever could have been for this final film - it was 100% appropriate to the story (it's part of the freakin' subtitle of the original book, AND is used in 'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'). Now, not only have the producers blown it by changing it at all, they chose the most generic-sounding (and video

I honestly don't get The Hobbit movies. Overuse of CGI, mediocre acting, and a story that could have been told beautifully in one epic movie. These movies play on the hype that the LOTR trilogy had, and anyone who disagrees is wrong. I'll never call them terrible films, but they're not great, and definitely don't deserve the hype they have.

Let's call a duck a duck and just say that the title change was made just so people would be painfully aware that there's a ridiculously huge battle sequence in this film and it's full of action, action, and more action. There's no reason why "There and Back Again" wouldn't have still worked, and this change is pretty much the representation of why this trilogy has gone so far off the rails: Stray as far away as the source material as possible in favor of surface-level features that guarantee

Which I really wouldn't mind so much, if only the quality of what we've been getting was miles higher than what it is.

Missed opportunity. This would have been the perfect time to use 'Comic Sans', 'Courier New' or 'Arial'. Or to make it more impacting, perhaps even using 'Impact'.
Just hope the marketing guys don't drop the ball with the poster as well. IE - There better be several big heads on the poster or I'll be boycotting the movie right up to the point when I go see it repeatedly.

And how does that different from previous Hobbit movies aside from the title change? I thought it'd be in different font or something.

Good point! This seemed like a rushed job.

I know. It seems like one of those preview movie banners you see at movie festivals.
