The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: A most expected journey


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey cast was in New Zealand for the World Premiere! I am crying ugly tears. Here be highlights of the event.

Also we got our first clip from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, where we see Gandalf giving Sting to Bilbo:

True courage is about knowing not when to kill a life but when to spare one.

OMG, having flashbacks when Gandalf told Frodo that “The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many”. Dammit, I know I am gonna squeal at the theather. Oh yeah, we also got a bunch of Hi-Res images~

OMG! Bryan Singer tweeted that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will be in X-Men: Days of Future Past!

So Cate Blanchett could be the evil stepmother in Cinderella. This trend of making the superior actress the evil stepmother? I like it.

Sue Vertue, Sherlock producer, tells us that while Sherlock‘s filming has indeed been pushed to March, it probably won’t affect the broadcasting transmission.


We start the day with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey IMAX posters. They are very pretty!

James Cameron will start production of the Avatar sequel next year for a 2015 release. That sequel, as well as the others, will probably use the 48 frames per second format used in The Hobbit.

So, Thor and Malekith keep fighting in this behind-the-scenes video for Thor: The Dark World. Considering this is way before post-production, doesn’t look half-bad!

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim viral campaign started. There’s an emergency test video and a document about the “Kaiju attack”. We also got blueprints of many Kaiju-fighting robots. Finally, there was “footage of a Kaiju attack” that gives me Cloverfield/Evangelion feels.

Mechas vs. Monsters? I’m so in!

And, well, it seems Charlize Theron would be in a remake of Park Chan-wook’s Sympathy for Lady Vengeance… and I am not sure if want.Why?

This will be very American — and very unexpected.
