THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES (12A,

SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW)

Peter Jackson finally brings his six-part Middle-Earth saga to a close with an epic conclusion for Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), and the company of dwarves.

This final part of The Hobbit trilogy sees super-dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) unleash fiery vengeance across the land, and to make matters worse, the evil Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs to attack Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their homeworld, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide to unite or be destroyed, culminating in a reported 45 minute-long final battle that should bring impressive closure to the film adaptations of JRR Tolkien’s novels – as Jackson’s truly admirable work goes full circle.

If you want a real treat, go see it in breathtakingly realistic HFR (High Frame Rate) 3D.
