Hobbit: Battle Of the Five Armies anticipation thread

Yeah, the mods can cancel this thread if they like the other Hobbit thread, but since this is the only film left, I figured it could get it's own thread.. especially since this newly dropped poster is so damn awesome. (Reminds me of the cover of my Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook)

Re: Hobbit: Battle Of the Five Armies anticipation thread

Cool poster and I actually created one a few months back thinking, I guess wrongly that their was a separate anticipation thread for Smaug and not the continuation of the original thread that Skywalker created way back when and continues to post in.

I loved both Hobbit movies and I am terribly excited to see the conclusion!

Sadly, I've come to that point as well. I enjoy The Hobbit films, but certainly not on the same level as I did with The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I wonder how much screentime Smaug will...really...have in this "battle" movie.

Should be a lot; tDoS felt like a much longer film than it was, but not in a bad way as far as I'm concerned.

(Thorin's boneheaded "let's kill a being of fire with something hot" plan notwithstanding, of course.)

My guess is 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

Screentime or how long into the movie before he's killed?

There's no way he gets that much "screentime". I think he'll be dead within the first 15-20 minutes of the film. Getting maybe half that in screentime.

I did read an interview with one of the SFX guys and he said the opening battle with Smaug will be absolutely stunning.

What are the "Five Armies"? I count dwarves, elves, and orcs.

There are various nations of men, elves and dwarves. I mean LOTR even mentions the 19 kingdoms.

The men from Lake Town. And the Eagles.

How long into the movie, not screentime. I could see first 15-20, but I could see him making it a quarter of the movie (well, given the length of the movies, a sixth of the movie, maybe). My guess is there will be an opening scene and a Gandalf scene as well before the dragon dies, which is where I'm basing my number.

Re: Hobbit: Battle Of the Five Armies anticipation thread

Yeah, I'm thinking at least 20-30 minutes myself. I honestly don't remember the book, like at all, so this is purely a guess with nothing to really back it up. It just seems like a good amount of time to really tie things up with Smaug and move on the the rest of the story.
I loved the fist two movies, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
