THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES - 4k Trailer and Ultra Hi-Res Stills

If the title change from There and Back Again to The Battle of the Five Armies wasn’t indication enough that director Peter Jackson plans to end The Hobbit trilogy with a bang, the teaser trailer that was screened during Warner Bros’ Comic-Con panel and that was released yesterday will surely win over those who have been less than impressed with the previous two films. If you have the display to support it, you can now watch the teaser in glorious 4k resolution. Warner Bros. has also released (via: Collider) uncompressed stills from the trailer that allow you to see every pore on Martin Freeman’s face, no magic ring necessary. 

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.

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.
