It premieres here on 31 Jul, so that means it sneaks next week. When does it premiere for you?

..which is fine by me.

Nowhere near the way-too-many days of torture I'm gonna go through with Australia's Dec 26 release date for BotFA. I'm going to be very grumpily off TORn for that two weeks prior! Mad
When is BotFA released in Singapore? Will you be joining me in miserable late-to-the-party suspense?

Australia always holds back its big summer blockbusters for the 26th. It's part of a Boxing Day tradition here - the first day of the long hot summer. People go the beach, the movies, the massive Boxing Day department store sales, or the Boxing Day test cricket. As we say in ad copy speak, "there's something for everyone."

Ah, past my midnight. Evil so no more thread-tipping antics from me! Off to bed before I turn into a pumpkin. Already my fingers are looking a little orange....

... last i looked at the local listings.

Actually it's pretty good here, with regards to premieres, especially for big films. We tend to get it about the same time, or even in tandem with the global premiere or early, like GotG.

LOL. Same here. 1 more hour to the witching one, and I've done my thread-tipping for the day. *Wonders who's the next threadstarter* Smile

     Fangirl pride Kerewyn! [In reply to]  

*Sniff* how oft has the term fanboy/fangirl been used by someone with their nose up. But I say, plz. Especially for movie characters, which to me to be a fan of, if anyone were to ask, even a child, most often has a lot of emotional and intellectual depth connected with it (outside of the crude-type fan-boying often directed at an actress *cough*.)

I've read some really eloquent posts on TORn as to why a person is a fan of a given character, and I could write pages on Thorin, Thranduil, Balin, Dwalin, Bilbo. Far more interesting and life-long, than being a fan of say, a football star in this country, who is only fan-boyed for as long as they can throw a ball a certain distance, and then, unless they are truly outstanding, simply discarded for the next ball-thrower.

It's a great memory for me and always will be, the fun I had at the midnight show with all the other Hobbit fans, about to bounce off the ceiling, because we had waited for DOS for SO long. It felt unreal.HeartHeartHeart

PS. Oh yeah - Giant IMAX with the seat-rumbling sound system - and PJ's Hobbit movies are worthy of that kind of a luscious viewing experience. Oh gawds. Now no matter what, I'm gonna hafta see BOFTA like that...Shocked

With a memory
Love came and whispered a story
That awakened a dream,

Open the sky up, start a fire
I believe even if it's just a dream"

I know it well.

Witness me attending ‘Thor: the Dark World’ last year, being such a massive Loki fan (a dubious pleasure I have to share with a squillion fangirls who are half my age). I was kind of rabbit-in-the-headlights stunned whenever he was on screen.


They're not all half your age. Wink (Only one more month before I can own Only Lovers Left Alive and then forever before Crimson Peak and High Rise are out!)

I'm surprised my own attempt at posting a pic here worked. (I only saw a little blue box. Crazy ) Of Course, at that size, the relevance feels weak as water...

For comic effect, maybe?:

     *amazed we're still rollin'!* Here's another piece to cheer you up Eruvandi (Leggy + Thranddy) [In reply to]  

aka "you know those photo shoots where kids swap clothes with their parents"

Just ROF absolute LoL at the expression on Thranduil's face. Hope this cheers your late night schoolwork shift!

PS: Kim shared the Master of the Realm piece, but no harm getting it more notice, it is GOOD!

*copy post for safe measure, crosses fingers and click post reply*

ETA: Yay! Success Laugh

     Love Kinko-White [In reply to]  

Tho as far as I know, perhaps wisely, she only puts up images of her book? I guess you would have to commission a piece if you wanted to be able to frame?

Thanks for posting!Heart
