Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins is shown bracing himself for war, proclaiming, "One day I’ll remember, remember everything that happened here: the good the bad, those who survived and those who did not."
The preview, which declares the movie to be the "the defining chapter of the Middle-Earth saga," shows an elfin Cate Blanchett kissing a fallen Gandalf (Ian MacKellen).
Other familiar faces from the Tolkien-inspired epic are back, including Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Ameritage and Lee Pace.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theatres on Dec. 17.
