The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey HFR 3D FAQ

November 7th, 2012 · 19 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


A short official FAQ about the HFR 3D (High Frame Rate 3D) format using 48 frames per eye in 3D mode that will be available as an option for watching The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The movie will also be available in 2D, 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D format, apart from the HFR 3D format that Peter Jackson is trying to promote and that he has announced to be used also for the sequels of the movie – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. James Cameron is apparently also interested in the high frame rate 3D format, so he might be using it for some of his upcoming 3D movies. And here comes the big question, is doubling the frame rate from 24 to 48 perin 3D really that good for a movie and does it make the experience much better? We’ll have to wait and see after watching the HFR 3D version of the movie, and when you do so as well please share your feedback as well in the comments below.

Journey 2 and The Hobbit Official 3D Trailers in German

February 13th, 2012 · 8 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


It seems that in Germany Warner Bros has an official YouTube channel where today they’ve started uploading 3D movie trailers for their new movies and the first one is for the movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, have in mind though that the audio is in German. You can watch the stereo 3D trailer embedded above in YouTube 3D format, this movie apparently as been shot in 3D and is not a conversion and if you still haven’t seen it in the cinema, it just recently premiered, then you might get an idea on what to expect from the 3D in it. Here you can also find the 3D trailer with English audio, although the video appears to be made for the Russian market.



The second stereo 3D trailer also available in the channel is for the upcoming movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, also shot in 3D and with audio in German. The Hobbit is still a bit far from appearing in movie theaters, it should premiere near the end of this year, so the trailer might give you some idea on what to expect from it as well. Again this movie as with Journey 2 is being shot in 3D and is not a conversion to 3D, so the expectations are quite high, especially considering what story the movies is based on. Feel free to share your comments below for the 3D trailers of these two movies…
