In this photo taken Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, a giant sculpture of Gollum, a character from "The Hobbit," is displayed in the Wellington Airport to celebrate the upcoming premiere of the first movie in the trilogy, in Wellington, New Zealand. The sculpture was created at Weta Workshop, part of Peter Jackson's movie empire in the Wellington suburb of Miramar. The world premiere of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is Nov. 28 at Wellington's Embassy Theatre. (AP Photo/Nick Perry)A crate full of sushi arrives.
