Peter Jackson, the famed director, had been working on his next big hit, The Hobbit. To all such fans who loved the Lord of The Rings trilogy, this was great news and they have been waiting anxiously for the launch of the movie. Jackson had decided to shoot the movie at the high-frame rate of 48 frames per second.
However, when he initially showed off the 48fps recording of the movie, many viewers stated that it wasn’t really good. While some felt it looked very real, others complained that it made the scenes look rather artificial.
Back then, the movie was still being produced. Now, the movie has undergone all the regular post-production polishing and those who have viewed it now claim that it looks a lot better. 48fps is not an industry standard and Jackson had been adamant that he would shoot at this rate to make ‘The Hobbit’ looks like very real.
In response to the unhappy comments of some viewers apparently, it is now being reported that Warner Bros. will be releasing the 48fps version of the movie only to a limited audience initially. This would help them gauge the response of the audience and if it is good, they may go for a full-scale 48fps release.
Most of the theaters will get the regular 24fps version of the movie which they will show to the viewers. So far, it hasn’t been announced that which cities will feature the 48fps release. But we hope that ahead of the official release date of the movie, which is December 14, this will be announced.
