Moments ago, the teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies went live on the internet.
One minute and forty-eight seconds of epic, set to Billy Boyd heartbreaking tune from The Return of the King, The Edge of Night. At this point we think it’s worth reminding you of what one of our spies said to us just a couple of weeks back: “it’s going to make us [all] cry!”
The best line? There’s only four, but for mine it’s:
““Will you follow me, one last time?”
But enough gabble — check it out for yourself! We’ll be back with more our analysis!
Today is the big day!
The teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be released worldwide at Midday PT/3pm ET.Posted in Barliman News, Barlimans, Events, Headlines, Hobbit Movie, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Trailer

Our friends at Weta Workshop have some really fantastic stuff this year at Comic-Con from both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. As they announced last year at Comic-Con, The Lord of the Rings 1:6 statue line is back in the hands of Weta and this year we get two fantastic pieces to start that off. The first piece is the Balrog, in a huge scale standing at 21″ tall with a huge footprint because of the base. The other statue is Faramir – who, finally, after eight years since the end of the original The Lord of the Rings 1:6 statue line, gets to come home to us. We also get, for fans of the mini-statue line, a brand new Ringwraith mini-statue, which at the show was only $80.Posted in Collectibles, Collectibles, ComicCon, Conventions, Hobbit Movie, Lord of the Rings, LotR Movies, Movie Fellowship of the Ring, Movie Return of the King, Shop, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Weta Collectibles, WETA Workshop
Teaser Trailer Monday is what the Warner Bros. marketing brainstrust wants to call it, and it’s happening tomorrow at Midday PT/3pm ET. But what’s that in YOUR timezone, you ask?
Follow this link to work out when the trailer will debut in YOUR timezone.
Warner Bros. UK has also uploaded a higher resolution (up to 1080p) version of the pre-teaser to their Youtube channel. It reveals some nice detail. Check it out below, plus our screencaps at the bottom (if you’re avoiding spoiler discussions, you might want to skip the screencaps).

Several Cast interviews have started showing up on YouTube after The Hobbit Panel on Saturday. Message board regular Arannir shared these ones on the boards and we thought we’d share them with you here. Something else for us all to enjoy while we impatiently await the teaser trailer to appear online.
Warner Bros. behind-the-scenes efforts mark this as more than merely another panel — despite the fact it’s sharing a slot with Mad Max Fury: Road, Jupiter Ascending and Batman vs Superman.
The enormous, multi-scened wraparound panaorama that muralises the walls of Hall H declares the pre-eminence of The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies in the pecking order.
It’s the panel of the day. (more…)Posted in ComicCon, Conventions, Events, Hobbit Movie, MGM, New Line Cinema, Peter Jackson, Studios, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Trailer, Warner Bros.
Many thanks to Ringer Piet for bringing this video of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Panel to our attention. Before you get your hopes too high, the teaser trailer has been excised from the video, so it only shows the Panel, but it’s still worth watching for that. Meanwhile we’ll all keep hoping they’ll release the trailer online soon.

We had heard that Hall H had been turned into a massive surround screen for The Hobbit, but now we understand precisely what people mean!
Even better, Warner Bros. used the panoramic montages that they created for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Why? Because they also revealed the panoramic scroll for The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies and we can get a bit of a taste for six key scenes of the final film!
Just a warning, because these are screencaps from phone vid (see the Screenscrush video at the bottom), the sharpness is not the best. We’re certain that Warner Bros. will debut the real thing in a few days so if you’re after quality you might want to skip this for now.
