The footage might have premiered at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, but Warner Brothers has already (and so kindly) released the first trailer for The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies. This is the final installment in the epic story of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, so the film is meant to serve as a bridge between the two trilogies. It’s appropriate, then, that Pippin’s song (from Return Of The King) plays over the trailer. Lee Pace is featured sparingly, but we do get to see Thranduil wielding his sword. The Battle Of The Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.
