I do hope it isn't 2 hours and 44 minutes [In reply to] Can't Post

I have grave concerns that if the speeds are not matched exactly, those jumping from the sub-2-and-a-half-hours-cash-grab bandwagon to the plus-2-and-half-hours-bloated-tripe bandwagon will risk falling and being hurt.

Wait...what?! They're previewing the film already? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't suppose there's any chance of early reviews/info leaking online, however.

Anyone remember the insanely detailed review of TTT which was up on ToRN in what, October 2002? Cool

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Nothing from them yet. I really want to get tickets to a midnight release for their cinema suites which they always wait to put out. However, I won't kiss this at midnight no matter what.

There was guards with him the whole time, [In reply to] Can't Post

And he has signed a contract to not tell anyone about anything!
I can imagine the guards sitting beside him in the theater watching him the entire time xD

And for those asking about 2D... I HATE 3D!!!

And 2 hours and 44 minute seems like a good length, hoping it doesn't get much shorter if changed :)

He's followed around by guards the whole time or just when he goes to a movie? What was he doing there anyway? It all sounds rather strange. Wink

He was guarded in the cinema, [In reply to] Can't Post

Because they didn't want him to take pictures or film or record anything.
And I don't know if I ever knew his name, and I know very little of him. I just know that there is this guy who have watched a rough cut in my local theater :P
I remember we sat and plotted a way to break in and watch the movie with him xD

I can try to find out who he is :)

You can't?!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Then how do you decide who gets to sit in the best seats? You fight till death? Throw pop corn and cola at each other?

I always buy movie tickets as soon as possible to get the seat I want.

But every word you say today
Gets twisted 'round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

Maybe he has a twitter and is talking in codes about the film! :D
