Ah, the future. Sometimes you just have to love how much it rocks living now as opposed to back then. Sure, we don’t have hover cars or jet packs – yet – but we do have the capability to attend the red carpet of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘s world premiere. If you caught the most recent Hobbit video blog from Peter Jackson you know they were still working hard on the finished film with only days left before the premiere. The premiere date has come and Warner Bros. will be streaming live from the red carpet for all us folks not in attendance.
There’ll be a range of things to see like a performance of “Song of the Lonely Mountain” from Neil Finn, red carpet interviews with the cast, and speeches made by the filmmakers. No, you don’t get to see the movie, but it’s the perfect primer for this Hobbit season.
The stream, available below, begins at 3:50pm NZDT Wednesday, but that’ll be 9:50pm/6:50pm EST/PST tonight for us in the States.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens worldwide December 14th.
