The Hobbit New Zealand Premiere
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey premiered in New Zealand last night and they rolled out the red carpet for the many cast members and crew in attendance. There was music and excellent weather in Wellington and it appeared everyone was in high spirits. Peter Jackson and his, now-grown-up, daughter Katie were there along with so many others. I grabbed some screen caps from the live feed (which seems to be looping as a rebroadcast, so check some of it out for yourselves, though it is a few hours long!) for reportage purposes. Enjoy!
