Wylie Writes on the Red Carpet: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’


The Canadian premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies took place in Toronto and Oscar-winner Peter Jackson, co-star Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies, The Fall), and screenwriter/producer Philippa Boyens hit the red carpet at the Windsor Arms Hotel.

Here’s what to expect from Jackson’s final chapter in the Hobbit trilogy:

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves.  The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone.  Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead.  An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth.  Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.  As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed.  Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theatres (in 2D, 3D, and HFR 3D) on Wednesday, December 17.
