Hobbitty goodness

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has its première tonight and opens for the public Wednesday 12 December at midnight. We have tickets! Yes--for midnight! [is excited] And awww, today's Herald had a poster of Martin Freeman looking very anxious and Vila-like. [loves] There was a photo of the main cast and I noticed Sylvester McCoy was in there; he plays Radagast the Brown.

Wellington is calling itself Middle of Middle Earth as Greg found when he went there last week. On the plane they had the Hobbit-style safety video and also Hobbit-related trivia questions. Of course Gollum is fishing in the airport. When Greg got back, he said he'd also seen Mount Doom from the plane, meaning Tongariro, and it erupted the next day.
