Watch The Hobbit world premiere red carpet LIVE from New Zealand!

There are less than four hours until Peter Jackson's long-awaited big-screen return to Middle Earth, An Unexpected Journey, has its world premiere red carpet and debut. The stage is set (the city of Wellington has been prepping for weeks), the stars have touched down (including leads Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage), and the whole she-bang kicks off from New Zealand starting at 9:50 pm (EST).
