Richard Armitage talks Thorin, ‘Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies’ and surprises

Richard Armitage The Hobbit An Unexpected JourneyMore Hobbit news came via Richard Armitage by Total Film as he discusses what fans can expect from The Hobbit:  The Battle of the Five Armies.

Armitage hinted at some possible twists and turns in the series’ concluding installment.

“There’s a couple of big surprises,” teases Armitage, before going on to enthuse, “I think it will probably be quite a cinematic event.”

Director Peter Jackson’s diversions from the source material have tended towards fleshing things out, rather than making key narrative changes, so this is intriguing news.

“It’s going to be quite a nostalgic event I think,” continues Armitage. “It’s going to be 15 years of seeing Middle Earth on the big screen, the culmination of Peter Jackson’s life’s work.”

No official synopsis yet, but The Battle of the Five Armies was a battle waged between the Goblins and the Wargs against Men of Dale, Elves, Dwarves, Eagles and a Shape-shifter on and near the Lonely Mountain (Erebor).

Armitage stars alongside Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Manu Bennett, Cate Blanchett, Aiden Turner, Hugo Weaving and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will arrive in theaters on December 17, 2014.
