From the official PBS twitter:




I hope I'll be able to watch it online somewhere once it aired, as we don't have any TV connection currently.

I know I know, I still need to put together a fandom post... although by now both The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug and Sherlock S3 are almost an old hat (well, S3E3 of the latter aired in the US tonight, but many Americans have seen it already anyway...) but I would still like to put down some of my reactions/thoughts. As much as I remember them, hee. Oh, and Benedict has written the foreward for Weta's upcoming book about the design/creation of Smaug for DoS - can't wait to hold that book in my greedy little hands!

Just a few highlights from the past weeks:

Wellington Town Hall “off-limits” as NZSO records for The Hobbit

Analysing the role of The Necromancer in The Hobbit

Benedict Cumberbatch to be honoured with Britannia award
- Congratulations Benedict! This is well-earned! :D

Peter Jackson receives New Zealand’s highest honour - And congratulations to PJ too!

Researching THE FRODO FRANCHISE: Part 5, Watching Peter Jackson Direct - Links to parts 1-4 of Kristin Thompson's series of entries about the research for her book are at the start of this entry. If you haven't read the book, it's well worth getting!


Loosely related:

Are the studios trying to kill Blu-Ray? (The answer is certainly a "YES" if you look at the Star Trek Into Darkness release - commentary only with the iTunes version WTF???!!!)

Someone made a suggestion for a Sherlock Lego set - click the "Support" button if you want to see it realized! :D

Let's just stick with that title, even though of course many posts preceded #1. :)

Yup, got some big news!

New official Hobbit poster and trailer debut details! (Dangit, they had to go and schedule this at the exact same time as my graduation ceremony??!!)

Don't know whether that invalidates this item, but we'll find out on the 12th, I guess!

The IMAX website now has a list of the select IMAX theatres that show The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in HFR (48 fps). Mostly US and Canada, but some international theatres as well (at the very end of the entry).

Also, "Attend an IMAX midnight show of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to receive this exclusive collector’s series of four character prints (while supplies last)! Check here for a list of participating theatres: http://bit.ly/HobbitIMAX" - from the official The Hobbit Facebook Page. Aren't they gorgeous?

The IMAX we are going to see the midnight screening at is on both lists, so we'll see it in HFR and we should be able to get our hands on the prints, hooray!
