Later this year, The Hobbit trilogy will conclude with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Fans of the movies can’t help but feel tremendous anticipation for the film when they think back to its Middle Earth companion, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and how its finale was almost universally regarded as the best of the series.
Benedict Cumberbatch doesn’t think those fans will be disappointed. He told us that Five Armies – directed once again by Academy Award winner Peter Jackson – is a natural progression that will bring the story to an emotionally satisfying climax. He admits he can’t wait to see the movie himself, since he doesn’t know how it will look with all of the special effects added in! (Click on the media bar below to hear Benedict Cumberbatch)
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens in theaters on December 17.
