There has been much anticipation for the last installment of The Middle Earth saga, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. While the film is scheduled to hit theaters later this year, many fans have long awaited the first trailer to the upcoming film. Given that around this time last year, moviegoers already had a taste of The Desolation of Smaug as its first trailer arrived last June. So the eagerness of seeing the trailer for The Battle of Five Armies has no doubt been long anticipated. Well, there is good news this evening as a major update on the anticipated blockbuster has come from the man behind The Middle Earth Saga: Peter Jackson.
Right on his Facebook page, the director of Middle Earth updated fans on when they can expect to see the full trailer for the third chapter in The Hobbit trilogy. Jackson confirmed that that the full trailer will not be making a debut anytime soon, however he also stated that the teaser is on its way.
Of course, many of you asked about the Hobbit Trailer. So, yes - there will be a Hobbit Trailer. But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet.
However … yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making it’s way into the world sometime soon…
So as you can see, while fans will have to wait to get a full taste of The Battle of Five Armiess, the teaser is indeed coming. So when can moviegoers expect to see this preview? As Jackson stated, he just sent the preview to Warner Bros; so it could mean that the studio plans to release it as soon as possible. Then again, the studio could have other plans. Perhaps Warner Bros will release the teaser at Comic-Con, or attach to the disaster film Into The Storm (which just so happens to Hobbit star Richard Armitage). It is anyone guess what could happen with this teaser in the coming weeks. So we just have to keep an eye out for the teaser to The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. Better yet, we should use two eyes; as long as we can spare them.
