The Battle Of The Five Armies Banner

With the final chapter in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, The Battle Of The Five Armies , steadily marching towards our cinemas, Warner Bros. has launched a hefty new piece of tapestry art showing some of the various conflicts and forces featured in the film. Take a look courtesy of Digital Spy… For those who may not have read the book, beware spoilers from this point on. The Battle Of The Five Armies, of course, sees Goblins and Wargs (one army, supported by nasty bats) face off against dwarves, elves, men and giant eagles (four much smaller armies) in a quest to gain control of Erebor (the Lonely Mountain) and Smaug's treasures within.

So, Del Toro will not direct The Hobbit, but he will continue to collaborate with Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens on the films scripts, until they are completely done. Who will step in to take del Toro's place as dire
