Empire's The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Covers Are Here

Bard the Bowman or Smaug the Magnificent?

Empire's The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Covers Are Here

Luke Evans' Bard the Bowman was left in a pretty difficult spot at the end of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. A particularly angry dragon is about to light him up, and chances are the rest of Lake-town may end up a little on the crispy side. Now, we're putting you in a similarly awkward, although slightly less perilous predicament of having to pick one of the two new The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies covers shown below.

Your pickle is definitely prettier than Bard the Bowman's but it's still one well worth thinking about: will you chose Benedict Cumberbatch's vengeful wyrm, or be seduced by the sheer ruggedness of one of fiction's most famous arrow despatchers? You'll need to have made up your mind by Thursday, August 31, although subscribers will get theirs a little earlier, and with this beauty on the front:{Empire' The Hobbit: Battle Of Five Armies Subs Cover}

Inside the issue you can look forward to the skinny on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Sin City 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as an in-depth interview with Expendables 3's most eagerly-anticipated ass-kicker Wesley Snipes and a Doctor Who photoshoot you definitely won't want to miss.

And while the new magazine is out this Thursday, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is out in the UK on December 12, and in the US on December 17.
