Character Posters of the day: It’s almost over. Just a few more months and the Middle-Earth saga will finally be complete. Whether you see that as a good thing or a bad thing will come down to your love of all things Tolkein-y, but when The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies - previously titled There And Back Again - is released in December, the running time of all six films will stretch to over 20 hours long (factoring in all those mammoth extended editions and whatnot). Basically, we’re going to need a lot of snacks and toilet breaks for that marathon. The film’s marketing department have cannily handed the film’s first character posters for the the four major Middle-Earth residents who also carry over and appear in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy (although of course, Ian Holm played Bilbo in that series), just in case anyone forgot the two are connected.
The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is set to be released on December 17th.
