The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies — Music Video: 'The Last Goodbye'


added: Fri, Nov 21st '14

It's always tough to say, "goodbye." But it's even tougher to sing it. Watch Billy Boyd belt out an emotional ode to Middle-earth in a new music video for Peter Jackson's final "Hobbit" installment, "The Battle of the Five Armies."

The song, written by Jackson and his partner Fran Walsh, and writing collaborator Philippa Boyens, will play over the film's closing credits when it opens in theaters next month, December 17th. Naturally, the song is titled "The Last Goodbye." So, have your tissues ready.

“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.
