Publicity for the Peter Jackson film is ramping up to its climax during these last few days, when a Hobbit will once again rule the world. I have friends too numerous to count who are going opening night. They won’t be the only ones. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has every possibility of breaking records given the success of The Lord of the Rings. The box office will be thrumming with more gold than Smaug’s treasure trove!
I am a bit worried about the movie. I love The Lord of the Rings but I feel like the last few Peter Jackson movies have been overwrought and under-edited.
Will The Hobbit suffer from these problems? Or will it be a tightly told tale to wow us for generations?
Despite my worries, I’ll be there opening night!
But, will you?
Will you be seeing The Hobbit on opening night?
I have been to numerous opening nights for many different movies. The fantasy / sci-fi movies are always the most fun. We geeks are happiest when we are celebrating our own culture. And The Hobbit is most definitely that!
Now I just want to go to a Terry Brooks premiere on a red carpet…
… please, Hollywood?!
