Video: An Unexpected Briefing
This week our friends at Air New Zealand launched an amusing on board safety video inspired by the upcoming film The Hobbit. The first in a trilogy of films from director (and Kiwi) Sir Peter Jackson, and created in conjunction with the Lord of the Rings, you’ll see familiar characters make appearances throughout the video in anticipating of the new film coming to theatres this December:
Viewers who pay close attention to the safety video could win a once-in-a-lifetime Middle-earth experience in New Zealand.
Hidden within the video are secret Elvish codes. Viewers who spot the codes can then visit www.airnzcode.com/hobbitmovie to unlock the door to Bag End and be in to win a trip for two to New Zealand, including a tour of the Hobbiton movie set, a visit to the Weta Cave in Wellington, and double passes to the red carpet global premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
About The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”
