A new clip from [The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies](movie:512312) has been released and it contains a particularly intense scene: the start of war!
Unfortunately the clip doesn't look as though it's the finished product, the sounds and music seem to have been left out, and certainly it's not as high quality as we can expect to see in the movie, but don't let that sway you - it's still awesome!
Check out the highlights from the one minute clip:
Azog send the signal to attack
Gandalf sees the attack coming
Bard orders the army to fall back
We see some epic battle trolls
Thranduil and his war elk are right among it!
The attack is launched
And the town is badly damaged
The whole thing looks pretty dramatic, even with most of the sound effects still to be added in, not to mention the quality will no doubt increase.
I love drama of the Middle-Earth battle scenes, and i'm sure Peter Jackson and his team will pull out all the stops for this final installment in the saga. I can't wait to see this and the whole battle in all it's glory when The Hobbit 3 opens on December 17th, 2014.
