We understand a premiere in New York of some sort is planned: charity VIP tickets were auctioned for the event several months ago. Additionally, fans tell us of a group called VIP Ticket Stand that appears to be selling tickets to the event for several thousand dollars apiece. Warner Bros. informs us that they do not work with this group, so we urge you to be wary in order to avoid being disappointed.
Date: December 9
Location: The Chinese Theatre
Note: this date hasn’t been fully confirmed, and at this point should only be considered a strong rumour.
Wellington cast & crew screening
Location: Embassy Theatre
