The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies First Trailer

Yes, we know it shouldn't have taken three films, and you're right, there's a lot in here that isn't in Tolkien's material, but the first trailer for the final instalment of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit is so glorious we're willing to overlook all that - and so should you.

For those of you struggling to recall the events of last December's The Desolation of Smaug, Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves have managed to unleash the Dragon Smaug upon the citizens of Lake-town. If fiery carnage from above weren't enough, legions of Orcs are marching toward the Lonely Mountain. Unless the forces of Dwarves, Elves and Men unite, all will be lost.

With battle scenes on similar scale to those of The Return of the King, The Battle of the Five Armies looks to be signing off The Hobbit's journey in epic fashion. We know you know how it finishes - but it still looks like a lot of fun getting there.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies arrives in cinemas on 12 December
