Japanese premiere today

The Japanese premiere is this evening with the red carpet beginning at 6pm local time, and a press conference this morning at 11.30am local time.

I think there will be live streaming from this site, though I don't know if everyone will be able to access it:

One fan has tweeted a picture of the Japanese poster in a morning newspaper:

How cool!

I hope all the main actors are able to be there, for the fans.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Yes

According to Warner Brothers, PJ, Elijah, Hugo, Martin, Andy and Richard are all due to be there. I've seen pictures of Martin and Elijah arriving at the airport.

I've found this other link

also, but no idea if or how the links will be activated http://gyao.yahoo.co.jp/special/lotrdigest/

Also Niconico will show it but i think you need an account there Frown

By the way, both the Yahoo and Gyao Hobbit pages are really cool :) Yahoo even has a Middle Earth weather forecast!

WOW!

I just came here by coincidence, just in time for the live stream, I only missed the first 15 minutes. It's amazing, all the screaming and everyone takes so much time signing, taking pictures, and talking; great atmosphere.
And Elijah has to be constantly reminded to move on Smile
