Happy Birthday Peter Jackson!

Director Peter Jackson is 51 today!  We wish him many happy returns of the day; and hope he takes some time to celebrate, and then gets back to editing those three, precioussss movies….  Happy Birthday Sir Peter!

Fabulous new video from Air New Zealand – with some familiar faces!

OCTOBER 31, 2012 at 11:11 AM - 
Today, our friends at Air New Zealand – THE airline for Middle-earth – released this fantastic new safety video.  Look out for some familiar faces – including TORn staffers Quickbeam and MrCere!  This is so much fun – and typical of the spirit and humour of the folks at Air New Zealand.  And as if the video itself weren’t excitement enough, when you go here to watch the video, there’s a link to a chance to win one of six double passes to the world premiere screening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in Wellington this November!  What are you waiting for?!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey soundtrack

NOVEMBER 1, 2012 at 9:24 AM - 
News is out on the internet about Howard Shore’s upcoming soundtrack for the first of Peter Jackson’s three Hobbit movies.  The release date is given as December 11th – so no month-in-advance November release this time, alas.  As with the three Lord of the Ringssoundtracks, there will be a regular edition and a special edition; you can see the artwork and read the track listing here.  Neil Finn’s ‘Song of the Lonely Mountain’ is confirmed as the closing credit number, as we reported here.  The track listing is interesting as it seems to confirm what has been speculated for a while about where the first movie will end; but I’ll say no more on that, for those who wish to stay spoiler-free!  Hop on over to to read for yourselves, if you wish!
