The Hobbit The Desolation Of Smaug Air New Zealand Aircraft Peter Jackson

Last week, Smaug got out of his cave and took a small vacation to Los Angeles, which also was just in time to celebrate the premiere of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. But how did he get there exactly? Well, the famed dragon teamed up with Air New Zealand of course, and flew across the Pacific, where he was welcomed at LAX airport by Jackson, two cast members from the film, and the New Zealand National Board of Tourism.

Okay that may be a bit too much, but to celebrate the release of the film, Air New Zealand completely transformed a seemingly normal Boeing 777, into the mythical dragon. Hit the jump to find out all the details of the plane, and some photos from the event, which we were able to attend.

Jackson made a brief appearance in fifth doctor Peter Davison’s short, “The Five(ish) Doctors” last month in honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Now it seems (and we hope) he is taking his fandom to the next level.

Gandalf's "You Shall Not Pass!" In Real Life

Most geeks have at one time or another quoted Gandalf the Grey’s (as played by Ian McKellen) most epic of lines from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, “You shall not pass!”

So it was only a matter of time before someone dressed like Gandalf and tried it out on the unsuspecting public. As part of their Movies in Real Life series, Improv Everywhere took over Bow Bridge in Central Park and got to the denying passage…without much luck.

BBC Sherlock Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman

Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has been working hard over in New Zealand over the last few weeks finishing up on the filming of his most recent Tolkien trilogy, The Hobbit. The director has posted photos to his Facebook page of the final days on The Hobbit set, including one of star Martin Freeman‘s last day on July 12 (here below), and then the final shot done on July 26, 2013.

One of the last pictures of the filming that Jackson posted on Facebook was taken two weeks ago of Sherlock stars Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch together on set. Freeman has the lead role in the film trilogy as the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, while Cumberbatch is voicing the dragon Smaug, who is the center of attention in the second film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, due out in theaters on December 13, 2013. In the photo, shown here below, which Jackson titled “Smaug admires Bilbo’s feet,” Cumberbatch is touching Freeman’s prosthetic Hobbit feet. Check out the photo here below.

Peter Jackson, Edgar Wright, Nick Frost, Simon Pegg

If you’re excited about The World’s End, the new movie from director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost that follows Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz to close out the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, you’re going to enjoy this video.

In it, Wright, Pegg, and Frost sit down for some tea and a chat with papa Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, who’s resting comfortably in his chair and wearing cozy wool socks. Jackson had a cameo in the second film of the trilogy and they’re all obviously friendly, so it’s pretty awesome to see them sitting back and chatting shop. The group discusses making The World’s End, from how the idea was born to various complications that arose.

You can check out the video below now. And be sure to watch to the end (starting at about 17:45) for some good ol’ papa Peter wisdom!
