'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' World Premiere Set For New Zealand

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to premiere in Wellington in late November 2012, director Sir Peter Jackson and Prime Minister John Key announced today at the Hobbiton set in Waikato. Wellington previously hosted the world premiere of the final Lord of the Rings movie, Return of the King, in December 2003. Over 100,000 people packed into the city’s CBD to watch the preceding parade. “I think Warner Bros. in particular were blown away by the Return of the King premiere – no one in the international industry could quite believe how the country got behind that,” Sir Peter said today. An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14, 2012. The second movie The Hobbit: There and Back Again opens December 13, 2012.

That's a year movie making time I guess that's not too bad because of the type of movie it is. I'm hoping it's as good as Lord of the Rings but that might be asking too much.

This should be good. I wish it would come faster though.
