For the final film in his Hobbit trilogy, Peter Jackson is attempting to make up for all the goofy and boring shit of the previous films with a lengthy, dramatic action scene in which, as offered in the title, five armies engage in battle. Also: bats! And not just any bats. As Orlando Bloom explains in this trailer, "These bats are bred for one purpose... for war." Finally, we'll see on screen J. R. R. Tolkien's epic vision of a bunch of guys trying to get these terrible creatures untangled from their wigs.
