The Hobbit To Premiere In New Zealand In November


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the new film by Peter Jackson (director of The Lord of the Rings saga), will premiere Nov. 28 at the Embassy Theatre in the city of Wellington, New Zealand. The screening comes two weeks before the premiere.

“I know I speak on behalf of hobbits, dwarves, elves and orcs when I say that this city has a special place in all our hearts. We can not think of a more perfect way to introduce The Hobbit to the world than celebrating with a large party here in Wellington, where the journey begins,”

said the filmmaker.

In the premiere, the producers hope to have the presence of all the main cast, composed of Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Bret McKenzie and Cate Blanchett.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is scheduled to hit cinemas on 14 December, 2012, with the sequel set to be released on 13 December, 2013.
