Legolas' Poster for THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES
Everyone's favorite Middle Earth elf, Legolas, is the latest character to be featured on a poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. The character has been played by Orlando Bloom since Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I think it is great that they were able to implement the character into this new Hobbit trilogy. He's obviously one of several characters who will help bridge the gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Warner Bros has previously released posters for Galadriel, Gandalf, and Bilbo.
The conclusion to the epic trilogy will be released on December 17th. Here's the synopsis:
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.
