On the eve of San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has released the first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies poster and it looks fantastic.

The very first one-sheet features Luke Evans’ Bard the Bowman taking a stand against the red-scaled dragon Smaug “the Magnificent” (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).

Director Peter Jackson also revealed that teaser will be released soon, with the full trailer premiering in October. With Comic-Con kicking off this week we expect more Hobbit hype soon.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens in theaters on December 17th 2014.

See  this really nice poster. The real question is, where’s “The Hobbit?”


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. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron 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 in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
