That breakdown doesn't seem to leave much for the third film...
the Dol Guldur plot would still be the climax of film 1, the death of Smaug film 2, and the BO5A film 3.
I would reorder An Unexpected Journey so that it ends at either Beorn's house or at the edge of Mirkwood. The second movie would end at Lake-town, but would contain most of the Dol Guldur subplot as well as the company's adventures with spiders and Wood-elves. The third film would be There and Back Again.
Although I still don't see an overwhelming need to break the book into three films.
