The Battle of The Five Armies not only brings The Hobbit trilogy to a close, but the entire Lord of the Rings franchise. An all-encompassing tapestry poster has arrived for The Hobbit 3, which shows off all of the main characters and some of the movie's biggest set pieces. Check it out as Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) rises from the fire to battle Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) while Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and Gandalf (Ian McKellen) step to the forefront of an attack upon the Lonely Mountain. Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) are also in a bit of trouble as things take an epic turn in this rousing climax, in theaters this December.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo's frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide - unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
