Did 'The Hobbit' kill high frame-rate already?
So, remember all that excitement over "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" being filmed and projected at 48 frames per second? Yep, it's been crickets ever since "The Hobbit" hit theaters in December. Granted, Warner Bros. and MGM were lucky there were no stories of moviegoers complaining of nausea or disorientation, but the fact there hasn't been one major new release that has jumped on the 48 FPS bandwagon speaks volumes for how it played in the industry. We still expect James Cameron to shoot both "Avatar" sequels in 48 FPS, but how many theaters it project it in that format remains to be seen. It's also unclear if theater owners will continue to embrace 48 FPS for the two remaining "Hobbit" installments. Will moviegoers "adjust" to the change by 2015 or is it one technology advancement that just doesn't fly?
