Big Preparations for King Kong Premiere at New Zealand

That's a big title for a post...

December 14 is the day that King Kong will be released all over the world. And just like the Lord of the Rings premiere, the King Kong premiere on New Zealand is going to be huge.

If you happen to be in New Zealand by that time, the Embassy Theater in Central Wellington is "The place".

According to

Preparations for a crowd of thousands need to be made, roads will be closed and an enormous red carpet will run along Courtenay Place from Allen St to the theatre. Entertainment will begin at 3.30pm.

Roads in the area will be closed to most vehicles from 11pm on Tuesday December 13. Courtenay Place (from Tory St to Cambridge Tce), Cambridge Tce (from Tennyson St to Wakefield St), Kent Tce (from Wakefield St to Elizabeth St), Allen St and Blair St will be closed.

Limited access will be allowed on to Allen St and Blair St, as well as a single lane on Kent Tce through to Majoribanks St till the Wednesday morning. There will be no parking in the closed-off area till the roads re-open at 4am on the Thursday.

Mayor Kerry Prendergast said: "It's a privilege to host another red carpet event for Peter Jackson. (He) is a hometown hero and we consider this a hometown film because so much filming was done locally."

Stars Adrien Brody and Naomi Watts will attend the premiere.
