Face it, the only time you pay attention to the pre-flight safety demonstration is when the flight attendant is hot. And if it’s a video presentation, you’re out cold before they even get to the seat-buckling part. But massive kudos to Air New Zealand (the official airline of Middle-earth) for taking this tired old tradition and injecting Hollywood-style production values into it.

“The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made” features appearances by Elijah Wood and director Peter Jackson, as well as a huge cast of extras who all get to play in the world of The Hobbit. There’s elves, orcs, a giant hawk, and New Zealand’s beautiful landscapes. The video is meant to celebrate the third and final film in the trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, due in theaters December 17.
