The Hobbit Global Fan Celebration Event To Be Held In Early November
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has unveiled two trailers so far on its way to its December release date, but the good news for fans won't have to wait that long for a nice long extended look at the film. Warner Bros., New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures announced today that on Monday, November 4, at 5:00 pm EST a special global fan celebration will be held and simulcast around the world.
Cinemas in Los Angeles, New York, London and Wellington will simultaneously host the event, with special guests from the film present at all four locations. Richard Armitage, who plays Thorin Oakenshield in the film, and Orlando Bloom, who returns as Legolas from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will take part from New York; Evangeline Lilly, who plays the new Elf character Tauriel, will be in Los Angeles; Lee Pace, who portrays Elf King Thranduil, will be broadcasting from London; and Luke Evans, who plays Bard The Bowman, Andy Serkis and Peter Jackson will be in Wellington. The entire event will be hosted by CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper.
But while those four locations will be the ones hosting talent from the movie, they won't be the only ones able to participate in the event. Audiences in Brussels, Belgium; Hamburg, Germany; Madrid, Spain; Mexico City, Mexico; Miami, Florida, USA; Paris, France; Rome, Italy; Sydney, Australia; and Toronto, Canada will be able to go to their local cinema and not only watch the nearly 15 minutes of footage from The Hobbit but also participate in the Q&A with the stars and filmmakers. The conversation with the talent will also be broadcast online, but rather than having the full 15 minutes they will only be able to see an edited version of the scenes shown.
So how do you find out about how to attend one of these fan events? Details will be centrally located on the film's official website, TheHobbit.com, but you will also be able to find out more on the movie's Facebook and Twitter pages. Until more information becomes available about the fan celebration enjoy the two previously released trailers below - and stay tuned!
