"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" unveils new poster

PanARMENIAN.Net - Smaug is front and center in "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" poster released ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con panel this coming Saturday, July 26. It features the dragon roaring and looming over a burning village with Bard the Bowman blocking his path. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the giant, and Luke Evans plays Bard, AceShowbiz said.

The movie will come out in the U.S. on December 17. "Like the previous two years, [the trailer] is not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we're all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet," director Peter Jackson said.

"However ... I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making its way into the world sometime soon...," he added.

Other than "The Hobbit" one-sheet, posters for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" and "Mad Max: Fury Road" are also unveiled. The former is slated for November 21 this year, while the latter will not hit theaters until May 15, 2015.
