No Additional Charge To See Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ At 48 FPS

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.

‘The Hobbit’ May Not Be Presented At 48fps At Your Local Theater

The Hobbit

With all the news about The Hobbit being turned into a trilogy spreading in the past few weeks, it was a little bit surprising not to hear director Peter Jackson address some of the issues and concerns about the film and its sequels being presented at 48 frames per second (fps). The projection rate was to have revolutionized the way audiences watched their movies. However, sneak previews of the film at 48fps failed to rile up any positive response. This left Jackson trying to pitch an encouraging spin for the new presentation format.

But that doesn’t seem to be working and now Warner Bros. is considering limiting the release of the 48fps version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected to only select locations. This could mean that major cities like New York and Los Angeles would get to see it in its intended format, while others will be left to watch the film at 24 fps.

Before Peter Jackson strolled onto the Hall H stage at the San Diego Comic-Con in July to present The Hobbit, the promotion for the property was at full throttle. First there was the announcement photo that principal photography was completed, then came the sweet San Diego Comic-Con exclusive poster of Gandalf the Grey walking along a path in The Shire. Then we saw the video blog that marked the end of production. Now comes what may be the greatest photo promo, our first look at a scrolling poster featuring all the major characters from the first of what will now be three films, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

So check it out below.

The Hobbit

The Hobbit may have been confirmed to be a trilogy, but to make a third installment for a franchise that was originally set as a two-picture release, you got to have money and a script. Well no one has any idea how much money will it cost to finance The Hobbit 3 (which has no title as of yet) and no one has any idea what the script contains, or if there’s a script at all.

Initially, Warner Bros. stated that they would give the green light for director Peter Jackson to move forward with a third film. The filmmaker also teased that there was more than enough footage to use for a third film. It was even reported that the cast and crew would return to New Zealand next summer for a two-month shoot.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Bilbo

Peter Jackson and Warner Bros. had mulled over the idea of turning The Hobbit into a trilogy since Comic-Con weekend earlier this month. The adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novel was to be released as two films, but Jackson stated that there was a strong desire by the filmmakers to tell more of the story.

Well New Line, MGM, and Warner Bros. must like what they have been seeing, because they have given the green light for Jackson to move forward with making The Hobbit into three films, making this his second Tolkien trilogy (his first being the famed, award-winning Lord Of The Rings trilogy). Jackson confirmed the news on his official Facebook page.

Peter Jackson Talks With Warner Bros. To Turn ‘The Hobbit’ Into A Trilogy

There has been some speculation recently on whether or not Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit could be turned into a trilogy. The classic Tolkien tale is currently on track to be released as two features, but the filmmakers are spearheading to change that and if it does happen, Jackson and the rest of the team could head back to New Zealand next summer for two months of additional shooting.

Talks of a possible trilogy started earlier this month during Comic-Con weekend, where the director had a panel for the first film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The idea of adding a third entry was still very much in the early stages, but the fact that Jackson gave such intricate details about the possibility of adding a third chapter to The Hobbit film franchise gave many the impression that this was no joke.

Peter Jackson Once Again Considering Expanding ‘The Hobbit’ Into A Trilogy?

The Hobbit

Despite just being one book, The Hobbit is being extended to two films: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. This will allow director Peter Jackson to tell a more expansive and detailed story. But during the San Diego Comic-Con, reports of the film expanding to three films started to surface. This, of course, trickled down to everyone’s Twitter feed, and a variety of sources drilled Jackson during a press conference.

Jackson acknowledged that there were talks of turning The Hobbit into three films, but with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey being released this year, the film split would probably occur at The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

SDCC 2012: ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Panel and Photos

SDCC 2012: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey panel

Director Peter Jackson revolutionized fantasy cinema with his epic adaptation of J. R.R. Tolkien‘s Lord of the Rings trilogy, a monumental task, in spite of the author’s insistence that it could never be filmed. Given the phenomenal success with which Jackson pulled that off, how well would he tackle Tolkien’s earlier saga of Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit? San Diego Comic-Con Hall H fans found out earlier today with the panel for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Moderator Chris Hardwick(The Nerdist podcast) kicked off the Warner Brothers/Legendary Pictures panel with a surprise, by pulling open curtains across the back of the hall to unveil projection screens double standard size, larger than I’d ever seen in Hall H history. Over these screens they displayed a collage of images from the film, which gave fans a hint to the epic scale of the panel to follow. Then, they screened a behind-the-scenes reel of footage documenting the exhaustive 266-day production shoot, including some of the amazing epic sets and characters of Tolkien’s Middle Earth.

2012 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Posters for The Hobbit and Pacific Rim

We are just mere days away from converging at the mecca of all things geek: the San Diego Comic-Con. And to tease some of the highly anticipated Hall H panels, Warner Brothers has released a few exclusive posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Pacific Rim. Now a big title that’s missing from this collection is Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, so hopefully we will get to see that one days before the opening of the Con. Check these posters out below.

First poster (via Bloody-Disgusting) is that of Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. The film tells the story of giant robots versus giant monsters. We previously saw a tease of Idris Elba in a high-tech suit. But the poster puts an emphasis on the robots and shows just how large the mechanical beings are when compared to that of their human operators.

It was a long road for The Hobbit, with MGM’s problematic financial issues being the main reason of the stall, but the two-part film has finally wrapped principal photography. To help commemorate such a momentous occasion Peter Jackson has sent us a bit of a tease. Check out the full image below.

The photo was posted on Facebook, and as you can see, it was a pretty stressful shoot. I’m not stirring up rumors, just saying that it was a very lengthy production. But here is what Jackson had to say about wrapping principal photography for The Hobbit.
