What I'm keen to see is what part Barry Humphries will be taking! As usual there's not a lot of girlie roles in there so perhaps it'll be a rare straight role out of drag
Looked it up - glad I did as he'll be CGI'd to the nines
He's playing the Great Goblin whose legions of darkness capture the Dwarves and Bilbo and take them under the Misty Mountains
I think he'll handle it brilliantly by channeling some of the more objectionable facets of his Les Patterson persona - particularly the drooling
Seeing it on Saturday in 2D as my local cinema only holds 150 people and I think the 3D might be a wee bit overwhelming in a confined space...
Will probably go to Plymouth (MyVue) to see it in 3D in a proper multiplex, but it's really confusing programming there as there are no less than 3 types of 3D screening there!
Standard 'Incredible' 3D - £9.90 matinees & £11.25 evening
'Xtreme' 3D - £11.40 matinees & $12.40
3D HFR (high frame rate) £9.90 matinees & £11.25 evening
Looks like they're taking note of the 'sick' factor for the HFR version and reflecting it in the price...
The reviews already up for it are really scathing for doing so many screens in 3D - can't say I blame people as the markup's pretty high. Just as well we don't have IMAX this far west - they probably charge even more for that!
2D in Plymouth is £7.65 & £9 - in Bude it's £6 for 2D and £7 for 3D
- and they never run out of popcorn
