I loved the books and the LOTR films but I'm just not getting excited for this like I assumed I would. Hopefully that changes over time. Didn't think much of that first teaser. I read one post about how the part with them all singing looked like some SNL sketch (that's unfair, I know, the books are full of show tunes) I just can't get that 'skit' idea out of my head now.

I'm sure we'll hear more in the next few weeks but aren't we due another trailer soon? I know it seems like only yesterday we got the 'announcement' trailer but, going by FOTR and TTT patterns, we should get a proper teaser trailer in May and a full trailer late September/early October. I know ROTK skipped the teaser trailer but I don't think that'll be the case here - the audience at that point knew that ROTK was due, FOTR and TTT had 'teased' them enough. As much as we all know that they'll be a Hobbit film in, ooh, 237 days, the general public could do with being reminded.

The only WB release in May is Dark Shadows, certainly one they think will be huge and one they may want to push the Hobbit trailer onto (there's no point holding it back until The Dark Knight Rises in July). TDKR has its new trailer with The Avengers on May 4th so it could follow the Christmas pattern where WB released a trailer for each within a week of each other. It also means the trailer is out there then for all of the summer blockbusters. Here's hoping.

We'll get a trailer with TDKR.

That makes sense with the size of the film, it just seems a bit late to be releasing a teaser trailer as the full trailer will only be a couple of months later.

Doesn't look like the 48fps went down well.....at all. Granted they hadn't finished some scenes but I have to say this has got me slightly worried!

IGN posted a review on the latest screening

http://movies.ign.com/articles/122/1223523p1.html


I didn't go into CinemaCon expecting to write anything less than great things about The Hobbit, but the very aesthetic chosen by Peter Jackson has made me very nervous about this film. It just looked ... cheap, like a videotaped or live TV version of Lord of the Rings and not the epic return to Tolkien that we have all so long been waiting for. I still have hope for The Hobbit, but I'd be lying if I didn't say my expectations for the film have now been greatly diminished.

Cinema almost *requires* a lower quality format to maintain an 'Epic' feel. A crystal clear picture for something like LOTR just doesn't work. TDKR, yes, but not a Fantasy Epic.

For the record I HATE the "fluid" 120 hz true motion filters on LCD tv and I have everything turned off so that i get the clean 24fps. on BDs.

Oh no... looks like no one was feeling the 48fps!

http://www.slashfilm.com/cinemacon-ten-minutes-the-hobbit-underwhelms-higher-frame-rates-cinematic-future-james-cameron-promised/

Hopefully this will be less of an issue seeing the film as a whole, as opposed to just being thrown into footage out of context and projected in a brand new manner. God I hope thatís the case anyway. These films have to mesh with TLotR viually! Be a HUGE shame if this (of all things!) ends up looking fake and cheap.

I though this was the way forward too... letís hope it comes good for December.

It seems that all the criticism has been aimed towards the 48fps but not a single mention of the context of the scenes themselves. As for whether it really does look "70's TV" or not I'll keep an open mind until I see it myself and not forgetting the 48fps will only be available in specific screens (probably IMAX). It'll be down-converted to 24fps on 2D screens and when it reaches blu-ray.

EDIT: The footage was only ten minutes long and ungraded so I think the criticism is a tad premature.

An interesting article on 48 FPS and comparrisons to 120HZ and TrueMotion that you get on TVs... which I can't stand.

This is interesting, it seems fans are not happy with what they have seen in LA.

Sounds to me like the actual footage took away from the actual experience of the film, so much so that's all reviewers are commenting on. Which is a little misguided....

I think it's gonna have to be a 'wait and see'. All else fails, if it does not work at 48 fps we can always opt for a cinema which is showing it at the 24fps instead.

When this footage was released there was a bit on radio 1 as i was driving home and they were talking usual rubbish about how the new 48fps would be a new revolution over 3D. I wasnt too fussed about it to be honest and im still looking forward to the hobbit- my eyes never really fully adjusted to Beowulf 3D but i still loved that...

What worried me more is this differentiation now between 48fps and "normal" films and the suggestion that chains may charge higher prices over standard films.... and that really irritated me a lot. Im going to see avengers on monday and told my friend i had no preference of 2D/3D (he is seeing it second time around and says 3D is awesome) but the fact those cost more AND Vue cinema now have "VIP" seats which you have to pay more too makes me pretty sad.... I feel priced out of the cinemas and thats before you add in popcorn or a drink. Sad times.
