#SPOTTED: PETER JACKSON, LEE PACE + PHILIPPA BOYENS IN TORONTO FOR CANADIAN PREMIERE OF “THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES”
Fans of The Hobbit Franchise might be sad that the end of the road is near for the epic Trilogy, but Toronto Fans certainly would not be let-down! Director Peter Jackson, Screenwriter Philippa Boyens and Actor Lee Pace (who plays Thranduil), made a surprise visit to the City today to promote the final Film in the Series, The Battle of the Five Armies. This Installment sees Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), the Wizard Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellan) and the 13 Dwarves try to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the Dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).
Among their hectic Press Tour stops today included several interviews, including a visit to eTalk Studios for a Live Audience taping of eTALK & THE HOBBIT: ONE LAST TIME, which airs Monday, December 22, 2014 at 7:30 PM EST on CTV. The Trio then head over to Scotiabank Theatre to watch their Film with Fans, before partying at the Windsor Arms Hotel. Some lucky Fans in festive “middle-earth” Cosplay at Eaton Centre this afternoon also were awarded a chance not only to win Tickets to the Premiere, but also the Afterparty!
Be sure to check-out the limited-time-only The Hobbit Lego Display at Eaton Centre before Wednesday, December 10, 2014!
We lined the chilly Red Carpet tonight where Jackson, Boyens and Pace arrived shortly after 9:30 PM, stopping to chat with several Media Outlets. Some Fans even were lucky enough to score a rare Autograph from Academy Award-winning Jackson, although he made clear a no Selfie Policy though his Handler. Pace however was amazingly-giving, taking his time to accommodate Fans, some who had been waiting for at least ten hours for a chance to see him.
See the Trailer below:

#SPOTTED: RICHARD ARMITAGE IN TORONTO FOR “THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY” | SIGNED PHOTO GIVEAWAY
Toronto received a great treat today with British Thespian Richard Armitage visiting Toronto for the Canadian leg of the Press Tour for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Appearing bright and early at Union Station this morning to present an installation by Warner Bros.’ which includes visuals from the eagerly-awaited Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) Blockbuster. 100 devout Fans – many who got the tip here – were lucky enough to score passes to tonight’s Canadian Premiere from our Friend Maurie Sherman from KISS 92.5.
The Method Actor is a familiar face to many having landed a role in last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger, but it is his breakthrough role as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit Trilogy which will make Armitage a household name. Arriving at the Station shortly after 8:00 AM amidst the bustle of Commuter Traffic, he caused a commotion among Onlookers, many asking “Who is that?”. Oh trust me, they’ll soon know.
Armitage appeared dapper and handsome in vest and suit with all eyes migrating towards his blue eyes – looking like a perfect Cousin to Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. Generously he posed for Photos and Autographs with Fans new and old. An interesting tidbit is that he happens also to be a Multi-Instrumentalist, playing both the Flute and Cello.
Fans are welcome to visit the Roots Flagship Store at 100 Bloor Street West throughout the day where Passes will be handed-out to the Premiere. For one day only, the Shop will be hosting Lenticular Displays for The Hobbit, so don’t fret – it’s not too late! Word is, at some point the Actor might even surface at the Store…
So I happened to nab an Autograph for one lucky Reader. All you have to do is click “like” on this Post at Mr. Will Wong on Facebook before January 1, 2013 to enter. Good luck. All are welcome!
Warner Bros. releases The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Friday, December 14, 2012.
