The Hobbit: You Won't Have To Pay Extra For 48FPS!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTech Talk

This is good news for all us nerds out there — Peter Jackson's super special edition of the upcoming Hobbit movies won't cost you any extra to see!

The kicker is that you'll have to find one of the FEW theaters that can actually project it, though!

Here's the thing about 48fps: people aren't really liking the footage so far. This is because we're alllll used to the standard 28fps, which gives us motion blur and that "movie" quality that we all know and love.

When we climb to higher frame rates, things become super smooth and realistic looking, that it almost doesn't look like a movie (or what we feel is a movie) any more!

Luckily, because of the luke-warm reception of clips and teasers presented at the new 48fps, and even though there are only a handful of projectors and theaters that can handle it, they won't be charging you any more for it.

That makes us wonder — why are they gouging us for 3D?? When digital 3D first started up, it came with a surcharge. We were told it was because of the equipment.

Now almost every theater has it, and yet we're still paying extra!

Seems like bullshizz to us!

Oh, and in case you missed it — check out the second trailer for the flick (above)!

    The standard film frame rate is 24fps (or more accurately 23.98), not 28.

    its 24fps. Not 28fps. If you're going to comment on these things, you really need to get a clue.

    3D requires 2 projectors, one for Left Eye and one for Right Eye. It does add an additional ongoing expense to the exhibitor, hence the surcharge.

    Thanks for another wonderful post. Where else may just anyone get that type of info in such a perfect approach of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I'm at the search for such information.
