The Hobbit hasn’t really come close to matching the grandiosity of the LOTR trilogy so far, but in the third and final instalment of a single book that was definitely stretched out to three films for artistic purposes and was in no way an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the brand we see the culmination of Bilbo Baggins’ adventure, complete with Orcs, Dwarves, Goblins, Elves (and a Dragon) battling it out to determine who goes home with the most impressive tales of daring do.

One thing the “sequel” trilogy did well on a large scale was landscapes – as you’ll see from the trailer, there is no shortage of rolling hills, mountainous caverns and what looks like some pretty serious looking armies, but set pieces aside, will this be looked back on as fondly as the original? Only time will tell. And if 45 minutes of that time isn’t spent saying goodbye at the end of the film, then all the better.
