Those lucky Americans are being given the chance to see all three extended versions of The Hobbit in cinemas in October.
The latest round of projects announced at Cannes include new roles for Richard Armitage, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman and the return of David Brent.
Fan girls rejoice – James McAvoy and Richard Armitage have both been nominated for Best Actor at this year’s Olivier Awards.
Are you as excited/sad as I am about the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? I’m excited because that means I’ll get to see it soon but I’m also incredibly sad as I don’t want to say goodbye.
Anyway the big world premiere takes place in London on Monday evening and if you can’t make it there’s a live stream! Hurrah.
Peter Jackson will walk the green carpet alongside his cast including Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Lee Pace, Andy Serkis, Stephen Fry, Sylvester McCoy, Mikael Persbrandt, Ryan Gage, John Bell, Aidan Turner, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, Adam Brown, Jed Brophy and Billy Boyd.
It all starts at 5.30pm and you can watch it here: https://www.warnerbros.co.uk/insider/articles/2014/november/watch-the-world-premiere-of-the-hobbit-the-battle-of-the-five-armies-live-from-the-green-carpet
December 8 will be Peter Jackson Day in Hollywood as the director is honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The event will take place at 11.30am outside the Dolby Theatre with Andy Serkis on hand as one of the guest speakers.
Also attending the event will be The Hobbit stars Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lily, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage and Elijah Wood.
Jackson receives the honour the day before the LA premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Not long now until the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which is taking place in London on December 1.
Not to worry if you’re not based in the UK though as more international premieres have been confirmed: Paris follows London on December 4, then it’s on to Toronto for December 6 with a simultaneous event going on in Mexico, it’s Brazil’s turn on December 7.
The cast and crew arrive in North America for the New York premiere on December 8 followed by LA on December 9.
And at some point they’ve got to fit in Wellington – wouldn’t surprise me if they make it the very final event.
So here we are then, the final trailer for the final Hobbit film has been released. This is the last time we’ll ever see a trailer for one of Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films and it makes me very sad.
I absolutely loved Lord of the Rings and always name the trilogy as my favourite film. I’ve enjoyed The Hobbit but it’s never real,y lived up to my expectations. I hope The Battle of the Five Armies gives the series a fitting send-off and actually the trailer looks pretty epic.
i both look forward to and dread seeing the final film – it really will be the end of a chapter for me, I started writing about LotR before Fellowship was even released and 14 years later it’s time to say goodbye…
