Stars Dazzle At The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies World Premiere

Oscar Winning New Zealand director Sir Peter Jackson and his stars arrived on a green carpet for the world premiere of his latest film The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

The premiere was live streamed to more than 160 countries from the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square, London.

Actors from the trilogy who joined Jackson at the premiere included Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Lee Pace and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The film marks the culmination of director Sir Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.

Sir Peter, 53, who finished editing the movie a week ago, said: “Saying goodbye to the cast was like this agonising long torture over 10 weeks. But the real emotions will hit me in the days to come.”

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released on December 11.
