    Does anyone have any idea when the New York City premiere will be taking place? Obviously it’s not going to happen before the Wellington premiere, but I so want to go to the NYC one so if anyone has any inkling of when it might be happening, I wanna know!! 😀

    Im a bit disappointed they aren’t doing the long car parade like they did for the Return of the King premier. It says its only going to be the 500 metres from Reading cinema to the Embassy theatre. I guess what im saying is I don’t see how they are going to get all the people in such a small space considering the Return of the King premier had well over 100,000 people
