Two new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banners include an army of elves ready for battle

Last week was character poster week for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Now Warner Bros. has released banners featuring Thranduil (Lee Pace) and his army and Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) caring for Gandalf (Ian McKellen).

I’m liking the Thranduil banner, since it teases a large battle involving an army of elves. We never really got to see an army of elves fight in a Lord of the Rings film. (I’m not counting the prologue in Fellowship of the Ring, since it wasn’t a decent length battle sequence.)

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters on December 17, 2014.
