The Battle of the Five Armies certainly looks like it will be delivering on the title’s promise. This is your typical third instalment trailer. Looking back on the conflict of the previous two episodes and looking forward to the bigger, more costly conflict of the third instalment. These trailers always have a hint of tragedy about them, serving as a premonition to the deaths of major cast members. Which, as this is a prequel to one the biggest selling books/most profitable film franchises of all time, seems pretty redundant. Everyone knows Legolas dies at the end of this one, right?
