Got my tickets to An Unexpected Journey 2D! Can't Post

I have now been freezing in queue for several days and have gotten to know many nerds in my hometown!
My seats are in the middle of the theater, so I am really happy with it!

I also have additional info!
I am not promising you that the film is three hours, but there was this famous movie guy in my hometown (don't remember his name), who had been invited to see the rough cut of the film in the theater where I was standing in queue. He was inside the theater for a little bit over three hours, so I like to imagine that we will get a close to three hour film!

Anyway, I am looking forward to watch the film 12/12/12, 12:12 am Norwegian time!

That's awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's freaky how close the release is, isn't it!? Cool

I don't even know when the film is releasing here in India. I've emailed Warner Bros. India but haven't received a reply from their end yet... Grrr!

It had gotten into the three digit numbers last time I checked! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was number 15 so I was one of the first ones to get there! Now I can just sit back and relax for two months and enjoy the film when it's released :D

2D? Should have went for 3D. ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

They are showing rough cuts of Hobbit in Norway? Have a hard time believing that. He should have told you all the secrets, then. Wink

Do they sell tickets just for the premiere or other shows as well?

They sell for the opening weekend [In reply to] Can't Post

So from Wednesday till Sunday.

Haven't bought my Wednesday midnight premiere tickets because friends want to watch it on the Friday Frown

I'm very tempted to just go by myself to the midnight premiere then again with my friends on the Friday...

Are the showtimes listed? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm just wondering, how can they schedule shows without knowing the runtime.

Yep:) [In reply to] Can't Post

About three hours and 10 min. But that usually includes all the commercials, so it will have more or less the same running length as the fotr theater version. aprox 3 hours.

Oslo Kino also says 2 hours and 44 minutes [In reply to] Can't Post

So this is apparently confirmed by Warner Bros.

So they are leaving at least 3 hours 30 minutes between shows (including commercials) [In reply to] Can't Post

Probably they are just estimating, leaving a long enough gap between shows, to be prepared in the event it's 3 hours long. Sorry, i'll believe 3 hours (or close to) when i see it officially confirmed. Wink

If I've followed your posts correctly Carne [In reply to] Can't Post

Is this corroboration from two different cinema chains of the same running time (2 hrs 44) ?

Cool! Thanks Carne [In reply to] Can't Post

It sounds to me like that is pretty official. Not that it can't change between now and then, but I doubt it will change by more than a few minutes. Good news!

I really don't think they're just pulling this out of nowhere [In reply to] Can't Post

It's likely that WB has given them an estimated length.

2 hours and 44 minutes sounds very specific, so as you said if there are any changes it's probably just going to be a few minutes.

It's interesting how other countries handle this [In reply to] Can't Post

Here in the States, can't buy tickets that far in advance, nor can you buy tickets for a particular seat or row. Or at least, not anywhere I've lived in the States.

I agree, but I still think that it can change [In reply to] Can't Post

Based on the information found by Daniel and Magpie and others in response to my thread about when we are likely to know the length, it is not likely to be set in stone until it is finalized. Still, I can't imagine that will change very much.
