'The Hobbit' Part 3 update: Trailer may be released next month
The trailer final movie for "The Hobbit" trilogy is expected to be released soon.
Warning: spoilers ahead.
The movie, entitled "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies," is set to be released later this year. TheOneRing.com predicts that the trailer would be released sometime in July--possibly on July 20th.
No poster has been released yet, but a new logo was made public last month (view it on Screenrant).
Meanwhile, fans have been petitioning to keep Thorin Okenshield--who dies in the book by J.R.R. Tolkien--alive in the final installment. Sources say that the plot for this third and final Hobbit installment will stick to Tolkien's story.
Directed by Peter Jackson, the movie, which will have a 161-minute run time, will star actors like Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins), Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield) , Benedict Cumberbatch (The Necromancer), Evangeline Lily (Tauriel), Cate Blanchett (Galadriel), and Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins).
It will be written by Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro.
Some of the biggest scenes that fans are looking forward to is the epic battle. Screenrant reports: At this point it's probably not a spoiler to say that the third act of Tolkien's novel contains a battle - one between five armies, no less. In the book, Bilbo is knocked unconscious early on and misses most of it, but since the two movies in Jackson's trilogy so far - The Desolation of Smaug in particular - have had Bilbo offscreen for a significant amount of the running time, it can be safely assumed that audiences will actually get to see the whole battle."
"The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies" is set to be released on December 17, 2014 in the United States.
