The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Tickets Go On Sale This Wednesday
People don't tend to line up for movie tickets these days, since being able to purchase them online makes that whole thing a lot easier, so don't go looking for nerds dressed as elves and dwarves at your local multiplex this Wednesday. Instead, check for you local geek frantically clicking to to Fandango or MovieTickets.com, as tickets for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey are set to go on sale at 12 pm EST this Wednesday, November 7.
That is, of course, just a day after the U.S. Presidential Election, which means that people who are both political junkies and Tolkien freaks might be struggling through a hangover-- or severe depression, depending on whether their candidate wins-- before they can buy the tickets. But of course, the effort will probably be worth it. When The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on December 14, the theaters are likely to be crammed not just with people who love the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but those curious to check out the groundbreaking 48 fps shooting technique that Jcakson is using, which depending on who you ask will either make the movie look hyper-realistic or like a bad soap opera. But hey, you can't know if you'll love it or hate it unless you check it out for yourself!
To share in the Hobbit excitement we've got going around here, check out Eric's series of extensive reports from the set in New Zealand, in which he gives an overview of the massive set, chat with Peter Jackson about unanswered questions, takes his own adventure to Mount Doom, and maybe most crucially, lays out an extensive guide to recognizing all the movie's dwarves-- something I'm confident I'll have a hard time with when the movie finally arrives. Let us know in the comments if you'll be digitally lining up to buy your Hobbit tickets, and click here for pretty much everything else you need to know about the movie.
