The Battle of the Five Armies separate article[edit]

When will there be an article on The Battle of the Five Armies? It is releasing this very year, and if 2015/2016 films already have articles, why doesn't this? Kailash29792 (talk) 08:43, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

It will be created when we have more specific information about the film. Although it does release later this year, there isn't much information that pertains specifically to this film. If you look at the article history of The Desolation of Smaug, it was created relatively late as well. In the meantime, I suggest developing it at Draft:The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies for now.--TriiipleThreat (talk * comment on List of Marvel Cinematic Universe films FL nomination) 10:10, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


Has the budget of '$425 million' been confirmed? As I remember there begin speculative budgets of the over-all trilogy that I myself, and other editors posted around a year ago, and it was deleted from deciding that a final budget won't be known until after the final film is released, because of taking into case marketing and any other production costs, etc. So should this be mentioned? Or shall we get rid of it for a few months until we know for definite, or even have a very reliable source that the $425 million is the over-all trilogy budget?

I do not think a budget should be put up without a citation and reliable source. (talk) 18:30, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Ditto. I think if we can't find a reliable source we should better not mention the budget at all. De728631 (talk) 19:03, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Article uses "the trilogy" without identifying LotR trilogy or Hobbit trilogy[edit]

There are several points where the article just uses "the trilogy" instead of specifically identifying which trilogy is meant. I presume much of the text was written when the first Hobbit film had yet to be released, so that "the trilogy" was understood to be the LotR trilogy. Now that the Hobbit films are also a trilogy, those references need changed.

Example: from the Development with del Toro section: For his part, Jackson had kept the Rivendell scale model and the Bag End set (which he has used as a guest house) from the trilogy. (talk) 19:51, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

'voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch'[edit]

Surely with all the evidence of motion capture work describing Cumberbatch as voicing Smaug is unjust, untrue, and crude. Frogkermit (talk) 15:54, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
