What? The Roxy Theatre in Miramar is going to have a New Zealand premier for "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies", at exactly the same time as the premier in London? And I won't be able to trot along and catch all the hoopla, and glitz, and film stars, because I am obliged to be doing something else at that same time?
Here I am, living in Miramar, down the road from Stone Street Studios, Weta Workshop, Weta Digital, the Portsmouth offices, Park Road Post, and the Roxy. And all the excitement next week will go on without me and my camera? Hey, guys - change the date. You,'re all gods to me, so I know you can do it. Perhaps bring in Gandalf; one air-twirl of that old man's magic staff and the Roxy premier can be moved to a much more convenient day, I'm sure of it.
Anyway, good luck, guys....
