The first symptons of "What then?" are slowly starting to appear. [In reply to] Can't Post

After waiting this long, it's freaky to thing the waiting will one day end... how do you live if you don't wait, count the days, wake up every morning to check TORn for news?

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

There's a couple options [In reply to] Can't Post

If one is set on being there at the midnight showing or whenever it first plays - well then you (or a really reliable friend/family member) get to the theater super early and make (or start) a line. If you're there early enough you just ask the theater where they want to start one - or if you're lucky they're organized and have some things roped out - I remember they did this for the Star Wars Prequels. The closer you are to the front of the line, the easier it is to get good seats since you get in before the others do. Then you have a couple people "hold seats" if there's a group of ya and the others go and get the goodies.

Or, if you're not set on going to the first showings, just slip in on a weekday early a couple days after the movie has been out. The lines aren't as long, usually.

King Arthur: Who are you who can summon fire without flint or tinder?

Tim: There are some who call me... Tim?

King Arthur: You know much that is hidden oh Tim.

Tim: Quite.

He may, it seems he did for the first two [In reply to] Can't Post

From your post and Magpie's in another thread, I've seen that FOTR and TTT were both said to be around 2:45 minutes at one time, but they later changed to 3 hours. Wouldn't it be funny if the same thing happened again? Laugh

Got my ticket also [In reply to] Can't Post

I was a bit unsure if I should wait after the premiere to see it, so that I could go with my friends (who are not as big a fan as I am) but I decided to go to the midnght premiere and then to the normal premiere also.
I just know that my mind will be so blown from the midnight premiere that I have to see it again after a few days to take it all in!

Hmmm [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm happy for you you've already got your tickets. Smile Well, 2:44 hours, that's not as long as FOTR but I was hoping splitting The Hobbit into three parts meant shorter films.Tongue But I suppose, to quote Roger Ebert Crazy, no good film can be too long...

So is there no 48fps screenings in Norway? [In reply to] Can't Post

No one seems to have mentioned the availability of 48fps. I would think that if the cinemas had it available one would be able to either buy a ticket for a 24 or 48fps screening. Does this mean that people in Norway won't see the film in 48fps or are the cinemas themselves not quite sure if they will show it yet?

I live in Denmark, and I am VERY concerned that we will have too few (or none at all) cinemas to show the Hobbit in 48fps.

All the big cinemas in Norway will show it in 48fps [In reply to] Can't Post

I bought tickets yesterday and asked if they were showing it in 48fps or 24fps, to which the person behind the counter answered "Only tickets for the 48fps screenings available so far".

48fps! [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think we could see the film in 24fps :o
But I don't mind, I wanted 48fps, 4K and 2D, and I got it :D

It is already rated? [In reply to] Can't Post

The movie's not finished, they may still add or remove scenes. I guess, they would re-rate it...

There would have to be major additions for them to re-rate it this late [In reply to] Can't Post

They would have been working towards a particular rating for months now. I can't imagine it would suddenly be re-rated so close to the premiere.

If you add any scenes you have to resubmit the whole movie [In reply to] Can't Post

even if you just add a few extra alien butterflies.
