This, the final film in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, doesn't hit the big screen until 17 December, but you can get a sneak peek at the first teaser trailer right now.
Screenwriter/producer Philippa Boyens: "People tend to forget what happens at the end of The Hobbit. They think of this little children's book. The rest of the story needs to be told, and it's pretty intense stuff."
Those lucky sods who've been able to preview the movie advise that fans should get ready for huge clashes and heartwrenching losses... and of course, lots of gorgeous sweeping New Zealand scenery shots!
