Today is November 7th, 2012, which means you can officially pre-order your tickets for Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The film will be releasing in a wide variety of formats, ranging from traditional 2D to the controversial 48 frames-per-second, which presents the film at double the usual 24 frames-per-second rate, which is supposed to provide a much smoother and more life-like experience. Some have called this new technology an eyesore that simply takes away from the viewing and makes the film look like a soap opera, while others have praised it for its free-flowing motion.
I have yet to see anything in proper 48 FPS, but I’m hoping to make my first experience be with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The Film Stage has posted an updated list of all the theaters presenting the film in 3D 48 FPS, so click here to read that one over. For local readers you’ll want to check out the film at the AMC Southdale 16 or the AMC Rosedale 14 to experience the film the way Jackson wanted you to, in 3D 48 FPS.
You can also choose to see the film in 2D, regular 3D or IMAX 3D. Here’s a nifty little letter that has been released regarding the 48 FPS and what it exactly is:
How do you plan on seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? Will you be pre-ordering your tickets shortly or have you already done so?
