The Hobbit films have been a slow burn up to this point but this new teaser trailer for The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies promises that something could finally happen in this final installment of the series. I mean, it has to. They couldn’t reasonably stretch the source material any further, and it has “battle” right there in the title. One guy even screams about wanting war. Plus, did you see all of those gold-armored soldiers? Now multiple that by five. That’s a lot of armor to track down. The wardrobe department would be pissed if it wasn’t put to good use.
Seeing as this is a Hobbit film, there will also likely still be a lot of ponderous staring because you’ve gotta keep the core fans happy.
