New Sculpture for THE HOBBIT Set Up in New Zealand

Last month, a giant scupture of Gollum was set up in the New Zealand Airport to promote The Hobbit, then Air New Zealand released a really awesome Hobbit themed safety video. Now The Embassy Theater in downtown Wellington has erected a giant statue of Gandalf standing in front of Bilbo's home. The reason for the statue is that the theater will be hosting the world premiere of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on November 28th! Damn, I wish I could be there for it! The movie opens up for the rest of us on December 14th, 2012.
