A lot of people have been wondering when we will see the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. Well, directorPeter Jackson took to Facebook and addressed that question, saying:
Thank you all for your responses to my posting about Lorri and Damien’s book. Of course, many of you asked about the Hobbit Trailer. So, yes – there will be a Hobbit Trailer. But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet.
However…yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making it’s way into the world sometime soon…
So it sounds like we will get a teaser “soon” and a full trailer this October! Latest news on the Hobbit front was the renaming of the third movie from “There and back again” to The Battle of the five armies. This means that we can expect a lot more of footage that happened after/outside of the hobbit book. We explain in more detail what this name change means, and what we can expect here.
