THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES Teaser Trailer Coming Soon; Peter Jackson Says to Expect Full Trailer in October

While we will likely be able to enjoy a teaser trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies relatively soon (like, probably Comic-Con soon), we won’t get a look at the full trailer until around October.  That’s still plenty of weeks ahead of the film’s December 17th release date, but too late to attach it to this summer’s big blockbuster films.  While that’s been the case for the last two trailers, Jackson was pretty forward about the reason we haven’t seen anything from the final film of the franchise just yet.

Hit the jump for his explanation and for more on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Jackson himself broke the news via his Facebook page:

I like that Jackson’s being upfront about the VFX work, especially since The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug looked wholly unfinished in certain sequences in the film itself, and considering The Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen’s recent comments about Jackson’s love of CGI.  While I enjoyed Jackson’s Hobbit entries, I’d really love to see him knock this final installment out of the park.  If you’re wondering what happened to The Hobbit: There and Back Again, Jackson explained the title change to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies a few months back.  The new title certainly teases something fans have been looking forward to seeing on screen since the trilogy was announced, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that it pays off in a big way. Keep your eyes peeled for the film’s teaser trailer in the coming weeks.
