As part of the promotion for the December 13th release of the movie, New Line and MGM are going to have a "global fan celebration" on November 4th at 5:00PM EST in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Wellington. The unknown theater in each city will have a satellite, real time connection to Peter Jackson, some of the cast and crew to show footage from the film and answer fan questions with host Anderson Cooper. The announced cast will be Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Richard Armitage (Thorin), Evangeline Lilly (Tauriel), Lee Pace (Thranduil), Luke Evans (Bard), and Andy Serkis (2nd Unit director). Other cities may have their own events but they will be in spectator view as get a look at the event but not participate with cast and crew.
