Richard Armitage, who plays Thorin Oakenshield in "The Hobbit" trilogy, is looking forward to seeing an epic battle in the upcoming third movie.
"There's a couple of big surprises. The one thing I'm really looking forward to is seeing the Battle of the Five Armies," Armitage told OTRC.com at the recent WonderCon Anaheim 2014 convention in Anaheim, California, where he was promoting his latest film, "Into the Storm."
The battle in question is referenced in the novel "The Hobbit" and pitted the the evil goblins -- some riding on wargs, or beasts -- against the dwarves and allies the elves, the eagles and men, as well as a skin-changer, or shape-shifter, named Beorn. Oakenshield fights as well.
"I think it will be probably quite a cinematic event," Armitage said.
