First Concept Images Of The Titular Battle In ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’; Peter Jackson Talks About The Sequence
While we await the release of the film’s first full-length trailer, this new set of images have arrived online, via Entertainment Weekly, from the final film in Peter Jackson’s cinematic Middle-earth, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies.’ Providing us with our first looks at the titular battle, Jackson had the following to say about designing and creating the 45-minute fight sequence. “There’s a lot of logistics that have to be thought through,” he tells the outlet. “We have dwarves and men and elves and orcs, all with different cultures, with different weapons, and different shields and patterns and tactics. Before we could loose the first arrow, we had to design the landscape itself and figure out, ‘Okay, if we have 10,000 orcs, how much room are they going to take up?’ ” Jackson says. “ ‘Are they going to fill up the valley or look like a speck?’ Then we could start drawing the arrows on the schematics.”
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes this new poster for the final film in Peter Jackson’s cinematic Middle-earth, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies.’ The trilogy of ‘The Hobbit’ films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ which Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and his team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will be released in the UK on December 12th and in the US on December 17th.
This new poster has arrived online for ‘The Imitation Game,’ which stars the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard.

‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star Billy Boyd To Sing ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ Credits Song
Peregrin “Pippin” Took’s (Billy Boyd) melancholic rendition of “The Edge of Night” is undoubtedly one of my favorite moments in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, and now we hear that Boyd will be performing the end credits song for the final film in Peter Jackson’s cinematic Middle-Earth, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies.’ In collaboration with ‘The Hobbit’ co-writers and co-producers Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh, Boyd has penned an original song titled “The Last Goodbye”. Neil Finn (“Song Of The Lonely Mountain”) and Ed Sheeran (“I See Fire”) provided the two previous outro songs in ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy.
Colin Farrell Enters The ‘Doctor Strange’ Mix; Benedict Cumberbatch & Keanu Reeves Still Said To Be Considered
Linked to the role since Comic-Con, earlier this month it was revealed that Marvel Studios‘ talks with Joaquin Phoenix to play Doctor Strange have fallen through. And while previous online rumors have linked the likes of Tom Hardy, Oscar Isaac, Justin Theroux, Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhall, Keanu Reeves, Ethan Hawke, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jared Leto to the “Master of the Mystic Arts”, and you can now add another name to that diverse list: Colin Farrell.
Colin Farrell is currently preparing to shoot the second season of HBO’s ‘True Detective,’ and Marvel has always gravitated towards actors with heat, and the lead in ‘True Detective’ is considered one of the hottest roles on television. Farrell is scheduled to wrap the second season of ‘True Detective’ early next year, and could move right into “Doctor Strange” should he be tapped to play the title role. The Wrap also point out that Cumberbatch remains high on the Marvel’s list. Furthermore, comic book fans have urged Marvel to consider Keanu Reeves, whose ‘John Wick’ has been getting stellar reviews from the fanboy press, and the studio has been paying attention. Fingers crossed we get more concrete word about this role shortly.
