Hello lovelies!

Hope the title meets with everyone's approval.

I have just one thing to say at the moment, a propos of the John Finnemore thing in the last thread: 'pub kitten'? 'pub kitten'?!!? Just how cute does that sound?

LetUsPrey Tue 04-Dec-12 08:17:08

Good grief, that photo! That's set me up nicely for the day grin

You know, I'm sure DS1 would love to see The Hobbit.

holmessweetholmes Tue 04-Dec-12 14:13:36

Just booked tickets for the Hobbit for the 15th. Excited!

Frankelstein Tue 04-Dec-12 21:41:45

Love this grin

We probably won't see The Hobbit till the week after it comes out. My MIL wants to come with us and we have to go before 22nd as my parents arrive for Christmas and I won't be able to get out of the house.

LetUsPrey Tue 04-Dec-12 21:46:22

Was just going to post lots of seriously phwoarworthy links - DH has just walked in.

Think I'll try to get tickets to see The Hobbit with DS1 on the Sunday after it's out.

Frankel - do I need to prepare some sort of escape plan for you? [hgrin]

Frankelstein Tue 04-Dec-12 21:51:52

Oh yes, an option for escape would be good. Either that or just send BC round wink

Confirmation on some Star Trek news:

+ Online trailer released 6th December
+ Cinema trailer will be shown prior to all Hobbit screenings
+ Extended 9 minute trailer will be shown pre-Hobbit at all IMAX cinemas


Double Cumberbatch at all cinemas soon grin

Squeeeee! at Star Trek trailer before Hobbit!

LetUsPrey Wed 05-Dec-12 00:04:29

Can't wait for the trailer!

BC in Japan

Yes, I think holy crap sums this up quite well

More BC in Japan. I must say he's looking rather nice.

The top photo in particular ...

Frankelstein Wed 05-Dec-12 06:22:49

The Spencer Hart photos look a bit odd. Not BC, but the other chap (presume SH) looks like he's forgotten his glasses!

holmessweetholmes Wed 05-Dec-12 07:49:26

Ooh, lovely suitbatch. I didn't think I could get more excited about the Hobbit, but the prospect of seeing the Trek trailer too.... Just decided to re-watch all of LoTR (yet again) after seeing the Hobbit too. <geeks out shamelessly> Oh and does anyone else have SNOW this morning?! Everything is just too exciting! Excuse me while I go and find a paper bag to breathe into...

LetUsPrey Wed 05-Dec-12 20:16:58

Excited about The Hobbit - tick.
Excited about Star Trek trailer - tick x lots.
Prospect of snow (supposed to be tomorrow) and excited re said snow - not tick at all.

Having this to keep me warm would help though grin

holmessweetholmes Wed 05-Dec-12 22:19:46

Phew LetUsPrey - thought my geek-out had made everyone leave the thread in disgust! Thing is, I'm a proper LOTR geek even without the involvement of BC, so I'm doubly squeeee! I have also just watched Baskerville. PSOS. Oh yes. Dh has given up bothering to raise an eyebrow at me when he comes in late and finds me watching sherlock

LetUsPrey Wed 05-Dec-12 22:31:41

I grew up with a brother who was a big Hobbit and LOTR fan. I seem to recall an animated version of The Hobbit, although sometimes I think I've made it up!

Have to say, I'm quite looking forward to the Making Of ... bits of The Hobbit. No particular reason of course wink

I'm just watching Inside Claridge's. (Can just imagine myself in one of those suites with BC). One of the shots from the street panned out to across the road and you could see the Spencer Hart shop. I actually did a little shriek.

Line.Officially.Crossed. a long long time ago

LetUsPrey Wed 05-Dec-12 22:39:30

Oh for goodness sake. They're playing an instrumental version of "Pure Imagination" now - you know, the song BC sang a little bit of in that ?MTV? interview.

Perhaps they're building up to him being in a future episode? In a suite? With me? That will not be televised grin

Frankelstein Wed 05-Dec-12 23:20:46

I remember the Hobbit animation Prey, though IIRC it only covered part of the book - up to the discovery of the ring.

I watched the Claridges programme the other night. Oh how the other half live!

Frankelstein Wed 05-Dec-12 23:43:03

Beyond good and evil grin

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 07:13:10

Star Trek trailer goes live at 8am UK time. Twitter will probably go bonkers at that point, so hope someone can post the link here for the rest of us. Unfortunately I'm in meetings from 8am till midday, so I can't do it.


LetUsPrey Thu 06-Dec-12 08:32:19


I really hope that link works.

It's an "announcement" trailer. Think it says there's another trailer after the weekend.

Won't say what the trailer's like but the film looks completely amazing - even on my tiny iPod screen!

holmessweetholmes Thu 06-Dec-12 09:35:46

Ooh yes, I've just watched the trailer. Looks amazing! And much swishy-coated, gravelly-voiced intenseness from BC. Yum.

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 18:23:33

Haven't managed to watch the trailer yet - boo! I have seen comments online though grin Apparently the Japanese trailer gets more footage hmm

I feel this is one of those films where in rooting for the bad guy wink

LetUsPrey Thu 06-Dec-12 18:48:09

I'm greedy. I just watched it again, but this time on my laptop. The film itself looks fantastic. Aaaarrrrgghhhhh - won't say more until you've seen it Frankel.

I've watched the Japanese one too. Sqquuuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 19:21:00

Seen it! Yay! grin x 100

How come the Japanese get more footage then? Hmm? Hmm?

Can't wait for the cinema trailer!

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 19:44:54

Hand porn for Prey

LetUsPrey Thu 06-Dec-12 20:56:43

I read the caption underneath that picture when it was on - I think - Cumberbuddy's Tumblr. Nearly made me blush. But only nearly grin.

Prey, do you mean this comment?



Managed to stealth-watch the trailer at work today; was grateful that I had the foresight to bring my headphones with me. [mops puddle of drool off floor] Mercy me, that is going to a wonderful two hours of cinema.

Am off to the colourist again tomorrow -- I don't want to start my new decade as an Accidental Ginger. (Although that would make a good nick, don't y'all think?) I told her a little red. Now I'm out 60 Euro and look like I (over)did it myself with a bottle of L'Oreal. [grump] So instead of prepping the house for 20 party guests on Saturday, I will be stuck in The Chair. And I won't even be able to troll Tumblr because for some reason I have no internet connection when I'm there. [double grump]

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 21:32:05

Oh dear, sorry about the hair issues GreenCard.

Can I just say this shot from the trailer just makes me hhhnngggg wink
