Dain's late Arrival to the battlefield *possible spoilers* Can't Post

I have a feeling this was discussed in some way or other on these forums - sometime ago.

Basically, the shot in the teaser - of the Dwarves charging down (presumably into battle) - raised a thought about the unfolding events leading to the Battle of Five Armies.

Does this shot demonstrate that the Dwarves will arrive AFTER the other four armies have engaged in combat?

Will it be a moment reflecting the arrival and ride of the Rohirrim in The Return of the King?

One of the absorbing aspects of reading The Hobbit, is the politics and the arising tensions between the Elves, Men and the Dwarves.

Dain's arrival prompts a deadly feud, which soon subsides by Gandalf's intervention and the threat of the Orcs and Wargs.

It is that moment of setting aside differences between the Free Peoples - against a common enemy - that highlights the beauty of that part in the story.

Seeing the trailer, this event in the book seems to be heading towards a significant change.

Unless the Dwarves still arrive before the Orcs and Wargs and attack the encamped Elves: hence Billy Connolly's quote on Dain killing Elves?
