Just ahead of its official bow, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will screen for Britain’s royal family as the 65th Royal Film Performance. The event will take place December 12 and benefits the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, which cares for UK industry employees and their families who are suffering hardship. Warner Bros UK chief Josh Berger said, “It’s fitting that this film, with a significant number of British cast and crew, will help support the great work the CTBF does for those most in need in the UK’s film and television community.” British castmembers include Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Ian Holm, Andy Serkis, Luke Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch. Warner Bros releases the film December 14.
