We’ve seen a number of images and trailers for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, but how about a clip from the film? Lee Pace’s Thranduil may not be willing to risk spilling more Elvish blood by carrying out Gandalf’s (Ian McKellen) orders, but Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins has no problem stepping in to get the job done.
Check out our very first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies clip after the jump. The film also star Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens in theaters on December 17th.
