This evening, London’s Leicester Square plays host to possibly the biggest premiere of the year (although they’ll have to go quite a job to make it bigger than the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II!). We’ll be there along with thousands of others to see the cast and film-makers responsible for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey walk the carpet.
If the press conference yesterday is anything to go by, those expected to attend include Director Peter Jackson, Producer Philippa Boyens, Ian McKellen (Gandalf the Grey), Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins), Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), Andy Serkis (Gollum), Sylvester McCoy (Radagast), Adam Brown (Ori), Aidan Turner (Kili), Dean O’Gorman (Fili), Graham McTavish (Dwalin), James Nesbitt (Bofur), Jed Brophy (Nori), John Callen (Oin), Mark Hadlow (Dori / Bert), Peter Hambleton (Gloin / William), Stephen Hunter (Bombur), William Kircher (Bifur / Tom) and Ken Stott (Balin)! Not a bas list eh!
The live steam should commence from 17:15 GMT so keep your eyes peeled on this page to watch the premiere as it happens. We’ve put up multiple interviews with the cast of The Hobbit as well as Director Peter Jackson but we’ve loads more to come so keep checking back.
You can read our review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey here and it’s released this Friday 14th December.
