The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Infographic

The good folks at shirts.com have sent us over a rather awesome Infographic for the new Hobbit Film: The Battle of the Five Armies. Here is what they have written from their site:

It all began with the words, “In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.” The Hobbit trilogy is coming to an end this year with the final film, The Battle of the Five Armies, and we got to thinking…just how does one have a battle with five armies anyway? That sounds confusing! We explored the words of J.R.R. Tolkien himself and used them to create this interactive battle map and companion infographic. They’ll give you a detailed play-by-play of the final chapter in this epic fantasy!

 

A couple of final notes before we get into the good stuff. First: All of the animation, information, and battle movements in this piece are derived from the novel’s version of events, not the film’s. Next: We’ve left out some minor details for the sake of brevity – Tolkien may be many things, but brief he is not. Finally: This post contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for The Battle of the Five Armies, which is based on a book that is 77 years old. Read on at your own risk:

First Trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure

I remember quite enjoying the first Maze Runner but I never got around to watching The Scorch Trials; this latest entry in the series actually looks like it might be pretty decent so I may have to give them both a watch before ...

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
