The excitement is mounting for the release of The Hobbit. We've already gathered our list of interesting/useless facts and now we're just going to ogle at some pics of the cast and crew. With just a few short weeks to go before it hits cinemas, Peter Jackson got the whole gang together on Air New Zealand to bring them back to where it all began for the official world premiere in Wellington on the 28th of November. As eager to see the movie as we are, here's a little video of the cast - among which our very own Aiden Turner is included - chatting about their experience of making the movie and their enthusiasm for returning to New Zealand and the family they'd forged.

In a move of pure genius, Air New Zealand have rebranded themselves as the "airline for Middle-Earth" to tie in with the release of the movie this December. Decorated both inside and out to reflect a hobbit-esque theme, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Elijah Wood, Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner and Sylvester McCoy were just a few of the big names on board.
