the black silhouette on the left [In reply to] Can't Post

is it a troll too ? I'm probably wrong but I'm seeing a creature that has more or less the head of an elephant...
Is it even alive ? I really can't work out what it actually is. Maybe it's one of those "tank" creatures, but maybe it's a bit too small for that...

I'd say... [In reply to] Can't Post

...someone brought catapults.

I am more intrigued by the host in the background over the ridge of the horizon (Rohan allusion, anyone?) Looks like these is the Dwarves' cavalry. But what are those projectiles above them? Are the dwarves using slings?

the walls of dale probably, and they are shooting projectiles from up there, probably sings since they look like big round stones

The more I look at this picture the more I tend to think [In reply to] Can't Post

that this was originally an artwork of the battle itself, and Bilbo was put there on afterwards, but wasn't planned to take the center of this picture initially, or even be there at all

Lots of Dwarfs in the valley. [In reply to] Can't Post

I wonder if PJ will actually let the battle play out the way it was in the book?

I'm hoping for a war council between Bard, Thranduil, Gandalf and Dain. That

Trolls have been hinted at... [In reply to] Can't Post

Magazine articles have made mention of Trolls (and other previously unmentioned critters) at the Battle of Five Armies. This confirms at least part of those reports.

Of this moment, which was an early CGI shot from the FOTR trailer that never made it into the final films.

It looks like really good fan art to me... It's based on the first Bilbo poster, but comparing them, the flags have been shuffled around a lot...

Trolls! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love how enormous those trolls are. Look unstoppable.
Could indeed be that they have Beorn face one of these, if Bolg and Azog already meet their death at the hands of others ( still looks like Legolas will kill Bolg, and Thorin and Azog murder each other).
