A large number of people are excited for Peter Jackson's newest venture into the world of Lord Of The Rings. The upcoming flick is the first of a new trilogy based off the famous book The Hobbit, and like the original Lord Of The Rings trilogy is mostly being filmed on location in New Zealand.

In honor of the first installments release on December 14th, Wellington airport in New Zealand has erected a giant promotional sculpture of one of the most iconic character in the movies, Gollum. The statue, built by world famous FX house WETA workshop stands at 13m wide with a large number of fish to keep him happy whilst he protects his precious ring.
