The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Extended editions of films normally are seen in the DVD and Blu-ray release, and very rarely get a theatrical release. But fans of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit trilogy should be excited to know that the longer cut of all three films will be hitting the big screen this fall.

More on this story after the jump.

Peter Jackson On The Set Of The Hobbit

What happens when a geek finds themselves abundantly wealthy? They purchase massive homes and add lots and lots of amazing stuff to them. We’ve seen it with Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House, and now we have another example with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies director Peter Jackson‘s 1930s mansion in New Zealand.

Jackson has had all sorts of cool stuff built to make his home unique, but perhaps most notably is the addition of an exact replica of Bilbo Baggins’ Hobbit house, Bag End. And better yet, Jackson had it built underground, behind secret doors.

Warner Brothers
Release Date: December 17, 2014

In what I like to call a “see it while you still can” style of reviewing movies before they leave theaters, I finally got around to catching Peter Jackson’s final film in the The Hobbit trilogy: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

And honestly, I can say that if you loved the Lord of the Rings movies of Jackson’s, then you might indeed wanna catch this before it leaves theaters. And you need not worry if you skipped the second movie in the trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, or even the first movie, An Unexpected Journey, at this point. But I would never recommend a fan of the original book to ever see this particular film. The first two…sure…but this one, not so much. It’s complicated. Let me explain.

Child Suspended For Using ‘The One Ring’ From ‘The Hobbit’

The Hobbit Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins with One Ring and Sting

Gandalf the Grey once warned Bilbo Baggins that use of magic rings is dangerous. That is a lesson that one fourth-grade boy in Texas is learning after he received a suspension from his elementary school for allegedly threatening another student with “The One Ring,” the magical object made famous in the The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books by J.R.R. Tolkien, which have been made into two film trilogies by Peter Jackson. Apparently, the boy recently saw Jackson’s The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and his imagination was kicked into overdrive.

The 9-year-old boy’s father, Jason Steward, took his son’s story to the local paper and its since gone viral. Apparently, the school boy told a classmate after bringing a ring to school that it was indeed “The Ring of Power” — like the One Ring to rule them all that Bilbo uses in the movies — and that he could use it to make the classmate disappear.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Movie Review
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Director: Peter Jackson
Writers: Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson
Cast: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Orlando Bloom
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 144 Minutes
Release Date: December 17, 2014

“In all the mountains there was a forging and an arming. Then they marched and gathered by hill and valley, going ever by tunnel or under dark, until around and beneath the great mountain Gundabad of the North, where was their capital, a vast host was assembled ready to sweep down in time of storm unawares upon the South.” – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Co-written and directed by Peter Jackson, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the third and final chapter in a trilogy of films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 fantasy novel, The Hobbit.

At the conclusion of 2013’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), and the Dwarves reclaimed the Lonely Mountain, but failed to kill the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch). Unable to reclaim his precious treasure, the dragon fled the mountain and set his sights on laying waste to Lake-town.

The Battle of the Five Armies picks up only moments after, with Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) defending his home against the “Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities.” Meanwhile, Sauron sends forth legions of Orcs to the Lonely Mountain to attack Bilbo and the Dwarves. With Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) at their side, the races of Men, Elves, and Dwarves must unite to save Middle Earth from the Dark Lord and his minions.
