HBT3-fs-340682.DNG There are a number of wild rumours that have begun swirling about the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

These all seem to emanate from an anonymous poster on the internet messageboard 4Chan who claims to have seen an almost final cut of the film. Considering that around 150 folks saw a rough cut with Peter Jackson in New Zealand just a week and a bit ago, some have assumed that it must be a fan contest winner.

We reached out to the film production to test the strength of these claims. Wingnut tells us they are all completely untrue. So that’s it folks, we can all calm down again.
