All Is Lost in New 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' Posters

Bilbo and Gandalf approach the warfare in very different ways

Weaponry is getting unsheathed in the new promotional artwork for the final Hobbit film.

The two The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies posters, shared on the film's Twitter page, each focus on a main character from the film trilogy.

In one poster, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) points a sword in front of him as the world gets destroyed. At the top reads the film's tagline: "The defining chapter."

The other image shows a close-up of Gandalf (Ian McKellan) as he appears devastated. Clearly, these are not happy-go-lucky times.
