A teaser trailer was released online for the epic-looking The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which stars Brookmans Park actor Martin Freeman, as the eponymous hobbit.

It showed Freeman deep in contemplation, as the dragon Smaug, voiced by Freeman’s Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, devastates a village, the actor, who plays Bilbo Baggins says: “One day I’ll remember, remember everything that happened.

“The good, the bad, those who survived and those who did not.”

The movie sees Bilbo, wizard Gandalf, played by Sir Ian McKellen, elf Legolas, portrayed by Orlando Bloom and a retinue of dwarves in their battle against the fearsome dragon.

A greater menace is also hinted at with the lidless, flaming eye of Sauron, the main villain in the Lord of the Rings trilogy flash up as a tantalising and ominous portent of what is to come.

The outstanding beauty of New Zealand is again showcased by director and proud Kiwi Peter Jackson, in his sixth visit to Middle Earth.

The film will be released in December.
