Attention East Coast Hero Complex readers! We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be heading to Manhattan to bring you a special free preview screening of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” director Peter Jackson’s anticipated final installment in his latest trilogy of films based on the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Stars Richard Armitage, Lee Pace, Luke Evans and Orlando Bloom will be on hand for a Q&A following the IMAX screening.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. on Dec. 11 at New York’s AMC 34th Street 14 & IMAX.

“Five Armies,” which arrives in theaters Dec. 17, picks up where last year’s “The Desolation of Smaug” ends, with dwarf king Thorin (Armitage) and company, accompanied by Martin Freeman’s good-natured hobbit Bilbo Baggins, having reclaimed the treasure of their lost homeland Erebor from the evil dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).

A vengeful Smaug heads to Lake-town to decimate the nearby village of men, and the destruction the dragon causes leaves the townspeople insisting upon recompense from the dwarves who disturbed his resting place, setting into motion the conflict that will grow to include the armies of the title.

“It’s very much like a thriller. That’s the tone of it,” Jackson told Hero Complex. “I’m not letting that tone go for a second. It gives me a chance to feel like I’m making a different movie, not something that has the familiar elements that we’ve had in the past.”

Click here to RSVP for the event beginning Friday at 10 a.m. EST — 7 a.m. PST.

Be warned, seats will go fast.

    hi, I sent you an email because I came too late to RSVP…
    My friend and I are heartbroken about this. We would be thrilled if there is a way we can obtain a pair of tickets for this event- we will pay or be seatless if we must…please contact me at artistwithoutidentity@gmail.com if there is something that can be done. Several of my internet friends are rooting for us and sending messages as well, I am a tremendously dedicated fan of Orlando Bloom and this would mean the universe to us. If there is any way this can work…this is our life dream. The fandom is the basis to our friendship. To be part of such an event would mark the night of our lives…thank you so much for your consideration!
