THE HOBBIT: THE UNEXPECTED JOURNEY set for November premiere

Peter Jackson’s first Hobbit movie is to receive its world premiere in November.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will debut at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington on November 28, two weeks ahead of its official opening.

“I know I speak for a company of hobbits, dwarves, elves and orcs when I say that this city holds a special place in all our hearts,” said Jackson in a statement.

“We cannot think of a more perfect way to send The Hobbit off into the world than to celebrate with a huge party here in Wellington, where the journey began.”

The Hobbit stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and features an ensemble cast including Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Bret McKenzie, Cate Blanchett, James Nesbitt, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Fry, Sir Ian Holm, Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner and Freeman’s Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug the dragon.

It will be released in cinemas across the world on December 14, 2012.
