The Hobbit

Most theaters aren’t equipped to handle Peter Jackson’s 48 frames-per-second (fps) presentation of The Hobbit, since most of their projectors are 24fps. So to bring in new equipment to handle the new frame rate means new more expensive projects, which means you would have to pay a higher premium to watch The Hobbit in its intended format. But before you decide not to watch the movie, just know that Warner Brothers has worked out a deal where you won’t have to pay a penny more to watch The Hobbit in 48fps.

Because The Hobbit will also be presented in 3D, audiences will already be paying a higher premium, so the decision not to increase the price of the ticket just because of the increased fps was unnecessary. So that’s a little bit of good news for our frugal fans.

With all the negative reaction the film has received after the film was presented in 48fps at CinemaCon, and presented at 24fps at Comic-Con, the decision to not increase prices doesn’t really change anything. WB is also considering giving the 48fps presentation a limited release, which could expand if there is a positive response from audiences.

Would you have been willing to pay another surcharge just to see The Hobbit at 48fps and a surcharge for 3D?
