The long awaited Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens December 14, 2012 in the states. Directed by Peter Jackson. The 3D adventure fantasy stars, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Martin Freeman as Bilbo, Andy Serkis as Gollum and a host of other amazing thesbians. You’ll be able to view the 3D tenpole film in four different formats, 2D, 3D, IMAX, IMAX 3D and HFR 3D(48) frames per second. The standard film rate is 24 frames per second. The new higher 3D film rate (48 frames per sec) was designed to improve the quality of the 3D experience. Advocates of the new HFR 3D say that the higher film rate reduces strobing and motion blur also creates a brighter image making up for the dimming effect of wearing the mandatory 3D theater glasses. There has been some criticism of the new format, some saying that the new HFR gives film that “Soap Opera” look, too clean, a loss of texture, loss of the cinematic look. 3D guru James Cameron is an advocate of the new format and will shoot the upcoming Avatar sequals in the new 3D HFR format. December 14th I’m there can’t wait to see this one!
