While DC Comics fans were waiting for an online release to surface from Comic-Con of a teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which doesn’t arrive for two more years and still hasn’t made it to the Web, Warner Bros. and MGM released a giant preview for the last film in The Hobbit trilogy–the last of Peter Jackson’s epic fantasy J.R.R. Tolkien series.
With a great title that seems to fit the dark and violent scope of this last chapter, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies looks to be another winner. In addition to the exclusive Comic-Con poster released earlier this weekend that we posted here, another version features Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins.
But this first preview… a peek at Smaug devastating Lake-Town… War-goats!
Thranduil in battle… Thorin calls for war… Dark times are ahead for fantasy fans, and we can hardly wait.
Check out this first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies:
