While we’ve seen first looks and new images, Warner Bros. has released another additional The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies images that evoke a somber, dark tone. Viewers who have seen it earlier on the premiere have been mostly positive reviews, even saying it is the best in the trilogy. Director Peter Jackson reveals that there will be a 30 minute additional footage on the Extended Edition, as that will give a rest for the fans who have taken a shock after hearing that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the shortest movie out of the series. Watch the new movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in theaters on December 17! The film stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom.
