This latest image from Peter Jackson's third and final Hobbit flick gives us another look at some of Thorin's company of Dwarves, all armored up and looking ready for battle -- but will they be fighting by the increasingly unstable Dwarf-Prince's side?

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

Starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Orlando Bloom, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released on December 17th.

Dammit I wanted some hot Dwarf on Elf porking all because he alluded to the contents within his trousers or at least some of Bombur's downhill barrel orc madness minigame it really brought the last movie together so well.

Cant wait for this movie!!

Honestly I'd be totally okay with them cutting the whole trilogy down to one 3 hour movie.

As much as I love LOTR, these films are very disappointing. Spending more time in Middle-Earth is great, but the overuse of CGi in these films is distracting, especially compared to the perfect balance of practical and CGi from the original films.

I'm sure this will be the best of the three, so I'll be there opening night.

Would have been far, far better.

In this film, Bilbo will fall off the very top of the Mountain itself whilst slaughtering 10 foot Orcs midair before landing in the ground with no wounds, utterly unscathed before inexplicably slaughtering another 2,000 in half a minute.

"-- but will they be fighting by the increasingly unstable Dwarf-Prince's side?"

Bilbo needs to get laid.

If hollywood is as greedy as we know they are, they'll cut it down to 3 hours and re-release it anyways. And people will go...*sigh*
