If you’re a fan of the Lord of The Rings trilogy then you’ll be looking forward to the return of Bilbo Baggins as The Hobbit makes it’s way on to the big screen. Peter Jackson is back directing whilst The Office’s Martin Freeman takes the lead role. Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett and Andy “My Precious” Serkis are all involved too. You’ll also need to keep an eye out for Sylvester McCoy (ex-Doctor Who), Billy Connolly and Barry Humphries (Dame Edna)!
The UK premiere of The Hobbit is expected in December and thanks to Amazon you could be there. They’re offering you the chance to win “two tickets to the London premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, overnight accommodation in a five star London hotel and travel to and from London for two people”. You have until the 16th September to send your details in and take part in the draw.
Although I tend not to enter too many competitions and prize draws, a trip to a film premiere is on my own wish list. The problem is that most premieres are in London and prizes often don’t include travel/accommodation and/or are run at short notice so there’s little chance to get organised. This one from Amazon is quite nice as it not only offers hotel and travel but it’s also for a film I’d quite like to see!
This most certainly won’t be the only Hobbit themed prize on offer in the coming months. The Hobbit is expected to be a movie trilogy – part II is due in 2013 and we presume part III will follow in 2014/15. Expect to see plenty of movie tickets, Blu-rays, books and movie goodies galore up for grabs.
