Jackson seems to have wussed out on showing the preview at 48fps although at least the feedback will finally focus on the content and not the frame rate.

Hmmmm, a little worrying that. If he made the directorial decision to shoot at 48fps 3D, then he should stand behind that and present it as such. That statement should basically be the other way around. If people really are not enjoying it in 48fps 3D they have the option of 2D at 24fps when it's released. Comic Con could have been used for damage limitation if they got the 48fps presentation right. But now we'll get to release having not seen anything to tempt us into a 48fps screening... only initial bad word of mouth that was never countered.

I was all up for going with him on this and seeing it IMAX 3D at 48fps. But now if I don't hear anything to convince me that it's not actually ruining the experience, I'll be going IMAX 3D at 24fps


You lost me at "hmmmm".

Shame. The post got progressively more amazing as it went along. By the sixth use of fps it was positively spectacular!

The new poster reminds me of the front cover of the LOTR book that was in my bookshelf growing up. (I remember having no idea what it was about; Gandalf just looked like some random, pissed off old guy)

EDIT: For some reason it won't embed the pictures. It's this cover I'm talking about.

And I agree, THGuy, Beorn's house looks brilliant. Love that they just made the set huge

Ah, yes. I mentioned this upthread awhile back. Great that the rumours are still continuing, very promising indeed!

Totally disagree.

Should be one film.  Two I had made my peace with , but 3?!  The Hobbit is not LOTR.
It should have been a 90 minute family swash-buckler in the first place.  More like, the Narnia films, than a 6 hour epic.

Yeah I saw that, it seems to be getting more official now.



There's a shit-ton of extra material in the appendices and in Unfinished Tales etc so it wouldn't be too hard to stretch this out to three films.

The question is, should they?

They don't have film rights to anything outside The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.

Any of the stuff taken solely from The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales or the History of Middle Earth books is probably out of bounds.

We all know how protective the Tolkien Estate is, and I doubt anyone wants more litigation.

Must admit that I would have liked just one film. But three films are too much methinks.

The Hobbit should be one film, not two. Never mind three.

Expect lots of made up Peter Jackson crap.

And probably hours worth of shit "dwarf humour".

If he has enough material to make three quality films then brilliant. The more Middle Earth the better. My only worry is that they may start to become convoluted or stray too far from the main storyline of The Hobbit. PJ said both films will already be sitting on under 3 hours run time, so that's a lot of footage to shoot if he wants a third of the same length. If it does happen I guess he could stretch the Battle of Five Armies pretty far.

The problem is that the Hobbit was never that complex, I mean we're talking about a story that works great as a comic (very nice art by David Wenzel btw) and if they can put 3 LOTR books into 3 movies then this should not be an issue. It seems purely like a financial decision.
