The Battle of the Five Armies hasn't even started yet, but the war for this winter's most anticipated film is already over.
YouTube announced today that the trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies was it's most-watched "entertainment-related video" for 2014's third quarter. The final Hobbit sequel took the YouTube crown with almost 17.3 million views.
That's miles ahead of the season's next biggest films. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Pt. 1 only pulled in 15.3 million views and Fifty Shades of Grey only grabbed 14.6 million views.
If the YouTube hits are any indication, Bilbo Baggins' final big-screen adventure should pull huge box office numbers later this year.
And while it's painfully clear that most of us have already seen the trailer, here it is one more time.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.
