It's the end of October and you know what I'm wondering: where in Middle Earth is the full trailer to The Hobbit 3: The Battle of Five Armies? Prior to the release of the first trailer, director Peter Jackson stated that we could expect to see the full trailer to this finale around October. Well it's October and there has been no sign of a full trailer.Perhaps the preview acquired the one ring and vanished into thin air. At this point, I was beginning to suspect that the first trailer was going to be the only trailer. That might seem like a let down, but given everything that is coming in this defining chapter, maybe having one trailer would be for the best. However, that accusation could be proven wrong according to the information I have discovered on theonering.net.
In the report, it states that a Norwegian film distributor discovered that the full trailer to The Battle of Five Armies may be released on November 6th. Now that could just be for that country, however it seems likely that this date would be for a global release of the trailer. At this time there is nothing to confirm that this preview will be released on the date suggest, but seeing this trailer hit on November 6th does make sense. Why? Well let me answer that with a question of my own: what film comes out November 7th?
Arriving in theaters next week is Interstellar: the new anticipated movie directed by Christopher Nolan. This sci-fi film's primary distributor is Paramount Pictures; but also attach to this movie is Warner Bros Pictures (whom also distribute The Hobbit Trilogy). Seeing that the Warner Bros will be connected with next week's big release, having The Battle of Five Armies's full preview attach to Interstellar would make sense. Another thing to consider is the audiences that will be attending Interstellar's opening weekend No doubt that many moviegoers are looking forward to the release of Christopher Nolan's new film, and likely some (if not all) of that demographic are looking forward to the final Hobbit film. With so many moviegoers likely to see Interstellar next week, having this anticipated trailer attach to this anticipated movie would be like having your cake and eating it too.
This is just theory as well as speculation. At this given time, there is no guarantee that the full to The Hobbit 3: The Battle of Five Armies will be arriving on November 6th, or that it will be attached to Interstellar. However, given the report and the variables that go with it, it would not be shocking to see the next preview to the defining chapter be attached the anticipated sci-fi flick. Worst case scenario: The full trailer to The Battle of Five Armies will likely be arriving in November. Best case scenario: you will be seeing the trailer more then once come November 6th. We'll see.
The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.
