The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey World Premiere Live Stream Planned

As you are reading this, Wellington, New Zealand is prepping for the world premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey set for November 28th...New Zealand time. Which is about 12 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time or 18 hours ahead of the United States east coast (and not accounting for daylight savings time). In other worlds, for Europe, the premiere is occuring before dawn and for the states it is in late afternoon or early evening. Why does this possibily matter since none of us are there? As part of the red carpet event, Hero Complex is promising a live stream from the red carpet that will start at 6:50 PST/9:50EST/2:50GMT. I have no idea if the stream will be limited to the States or not. Once I know the link for the stream I will post it on the blog.

Expected to appear on the red carpet and possibly answer questions from reporters are Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Ian Holm, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Christopher Lee, Lee Pace, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood and more. Ian McKellen had to cancel for unknown reasons. Neil Finn will also be there to perform at the event including "Song of the Lovely Mountain" that is part of the end credits. Not sure what else is going on but red carpet world premieres are mostly a way to get a bunch of quit interviews into TV and magazines as the various stars that attend look their very best. Having watched a live stream before of a red carpet thing for Transformers 2, it is actually pretty boring unless you like to star watch. Hopefully though might seem some more Hobbit inspired touches like the Bag End baggage carousel and Gandalf knocking images in this post.
