With the highly anticipated ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ movie set to hit theaters on December 14th, we can expect plenty of awesome promotional material to hit the scene over the ensuing weeks.

The latest piece is one of the coolest we have ever seen in this amazing Giant Gollum Sculpture located at the Wellington Airport in New Zealand. The massive sculpture weighs in at 2,645 pounds, and measures in at 9.8 foot high and 43 foot long. Designed by the team at Weta Workshop, the gargantuan Gollum can be seen fishing suspended from the ceiling over the eating area of the main airport lounge. Surprisingly the sculpture was constructed in only 3 days, and the design team documented the build in the video seen below.
