Will The Desolation of Smaug premiere in Russia?
Earlier this month we discovered that the contract between Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema required only one of the Hobbit movies to have its premiere in New Zealand. It now seems that the world premiere of The Desolation of Smaug will be held in Moscow, Russia.
At the most recent Supanova event in Sydney, Australia, Jed Brophy and Aidan Turner mentioned that they might be heading to Russia this December. For what? The only reason that comes to mind is the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
