It’s raining, it’s pouring–RA & Hobbity goodness!


It’s actually raining and pouring the regular wet stuff here right now. No wonder Bad and Even Worse Knee hurt all night. That may have impeded sleep, but it didn’t stop me from soaking up all the pre-premiere Hobbit hoopla. I have never been so ridiculously excited over the premiere of any movie, including one that was shot right in my hometown and county.

Of course, it didn’t star Richard Armitage as the world’s sexiest dwarf, either, more’s the pity.

Here are some photos that Sir Ian McKellen tweeted earlier of the preparations in Wellington as they literally rolled out the red carpet for Sir Peter and Company.

There are interviews which I tried to link to here, but only end up with big black holes. ?? Go to YouTube and type in “Hobbit Cast Interviews” and you should pull them up if you haven’t seen them already. Richard looks great, is in mellifluous voice and is his typical gentlemanly and articulate self. And those smiles and the laughter!

  1. Oh Angie, Richard and your artwork with his pictures are going to be the end of me, I swear… You really know how to take his pictures from beautiful to breathtakingly gorgeous!! I love the black and white one…
    I’m so incredibly happy he’s finally the big movie star he always deserved to be. And I’m (like all his army) so immensely proud of him!! He’s the best!!!

    • What Noemi said! On RAnet’s facebook page, there are functional links to the interviews, too.

      I know how the stormy, soggy weather can really hurt. Take care and remember to take a LorTab before the pain goes to a 7. Hope you feel better soon, well enough to enjoy the stream from NZ later.

      • No links are functioning for me, now, re videos. All I get is a big solid black box with no controls. *sigh* Fortunately I downloaded two vids I can no longer access. Anyway, I need to try to get some sleep now or I won’t have much fun later.

  2. I’m really sorry, I also hope you feel better soon, it’s just (like you said in your fabulous vid) that I only have eyes for Richard… But I really hope you feel better soon Angie, take care, big hug 🙂

  3. Healing vibes for your knees, darling! Hope those LorTabs will work!! I’m officially on leave tomorrow but I’ll have to pop in the office in the morning, don’t know how I’ll get up as I intend to watch the live stream from the Premiere which will start at 4.30 Eastern European Time!
