Richard Armitage is Thorin Oakenshield, determined to regain his mountain kingdom

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead.

An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, 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 as five great armies go to war.

Stars of the final film include regulars Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, Evangeline Lily, Orlando Bloom, Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as a very welcome Billy Connolly.

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' is released in UK cinemas 12 December 2014. Meanwhile, call yourself a Hobbit fan? Check this out...
