Things We Saw Today: Go to a Midnight IMAX Screening of The Hobbit and You’ll Nab Some Free Posters


If you see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX, not only will you see the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness, too, you’ll also get four special character posters: Bilbo (above), Gandalf, Thorin, and Gollum. Alas, the giveaway is only for the midnight IMAX screenings, so get your tickets if you haven’t already. You can see the other three images at /Film.

  • The Frisky presents 10 Internet phrases that you should never, ever name your baby. Luckily, The Mary Sue is practically already a name. Feel free to strike the “The” if you want to name a member of the next generation of geek girls after us. We won’t mind.

Not only is this New Zealand reporter doing the weather dressed as an Elf, Hobbiton is on the map! Oh, New Zealand. Never change. (Tumblr)

  • Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes is working on a period drama for NBC: The Gilded Age, set in 1880s New York and involving millionaire business titans and their associated wealth and scandals. Something tells me the costumes will be fabulous. (Deadline)
  • Heads up, England-dwelling Spidey-fans: Bleeding Cool is reporting that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (production title: London Calling) will be doing some filming in your neck of the woods.

    “Practically already a name”? Uh, dude? Some of our parents already named us Mary Sue.

    Yeah, but not “THE Mary Sue.” That’s what I was saying.

    Aww, I want that Bilbo poster! There’s no way I’m pulling off a midnight showing though.

    Forget that Bilbo poster, I want that Russian Star Wars poster!

    That isn’t fair, I’m going to the High Frame Rate showing at midnight! Why can’t they offer posters for both?

    My local theater gives out special stuff to all midnight showings, you never know. Show your ticket and ask, they may have enough to go around. Also, check back the next morning. Sometimes they’ll leave extras sitting out for free at customer service. Again, it depends on the theater. Mine is a local AMC and they consistently give out extras the next day.
