”It’s great to have so many people Michael Kors Tote Bags come out to celebrate the movie,” Jackson told the News. ”It’s very humbling. New Zealand is a very small country, it’s a very young country, I just think we like to celebrate when we punch above our weight. We sometimes do quite well in sports, and now we’re doing okay in movie making too.”
