There are only eight weeks left until the long-awaited The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey world premiere takes place.

And Sir Peter Jackson is building suspense by giving fans a hint of what is to come.

Jackson has launched a new video on his Facebook page celebrating 'Tolkien Week', announcing that a new trailer will be released later this week and revealing more images from the film.

MSN NZ will be getting the trailer FIRST and it will be live this Thursday, September 20, at 2am.

Lead actor Martin Freeman as Bilbo, Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf, and the 13 dwarfs who visit Bilbo are included in the pictures.

Images of Kiwi actors Dean O'Gorman as Fili, Mark Hadlow as Dori, William Kircher as Bifur, Peter Hambleton as Gloin, and Jed Brophy as Nori are also set to be released.

Preparations for the film's November 28 premiere are also under way at Wellington City Council, which has set aside $1.15 million for the premiere. Jackson has promised the premiere will be a "huge party", and several stars, such as Freeman and Lord of the Rings stalwarts, Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf) and Orlando Bloom, are expected to attend.

Next month, the council will discuss road closures planned to be in place from 9pm on Tuesday, November 27, to 5.30am on Thursday, November 29. The current plan will see parts of Courtenay Place and Tory St, and several adjoining streets, closed.

The council is receiving written objections on the road closures until 5pm on Friday, September 28.
