The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies - Rated PG-13. Peter Jackson takes cues from the appendices of The Lord of the Rings to expand New Line Cinema's Hobbit adaptation with this third film completing the epic tale of Bilbo Baggins. The story opens to find the vengeful dragon Smaug decimating the peaceful hamlet of Laketown as Bilbo, Thorin and the rest of the dwarves lay claim to the Lonely Mountain. But their celebration is short-lived as Thorin grows obsessed with finding the Arkenstone. Meanwhile, Galadriel, Elrond, and Saruman battle the Nazgul in an attempt to free Gandalf, getting unexpected help from eccentric wizard Radagast. Unfortunately for all involved the struggle has only just begun, because as armies of dwarves, elves, orcs, humans and goblins converge at the base of the Lonely Mountain, the fight for the future of Middle Earth begins.
