For those desperate to see the trailer for “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the final film in Peter Jackson’s Tolkien prequel trilogy, there’s both good and bad news today via the filmmaker’s Facebook page.
First up, two trailers are set to be released for the film before its release in December. Jackson says the second of them, the full-length trailer, won’t be released until October due to “the complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet.”
Fans however will get a glimpse before that though with the teaser trailer. Jackson says “Yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer, and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making it’s way into the world sometime soon.”
Though not said in, it’s expected the teaser will have its debut at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in a few weeks and will then probably be loosely attached to one of the big films hitting at the end of the month/early August like “Hercules,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” or Warners’ own “Into the Storm”.
