As promised prior to Comic Con the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies has been released by Peter Jackson.
It’s a very somber affair here, with a focus on destruction and loss. And it’s given a particular kick of the morose by reprising Pippin’s lament for Faramir from Return of the King, as the insane Steward Denethor sent him and his men out to what was obviously a death trap.
There’s also a distinct lack of any real battle footage here, and I assume that’s purposeful both in terms of Jackson and co. not wanting to blow their load too early, and (as mentioned previously) the effects shots just not being ready to reveal yet.
Expect a full trailer by October folks – and prepare yourself for the final trip to Middle Earth this Christmas.
