HFR and Dolby Atmos Theaters for 'The Hobbit' Revealed
'The Hobbit' is one hotly anticipated film.  Not only is it another opportunity to see Peter Jackson tackle some Tolkien, but it's also a film that's pushing the boundaries of technology.  Over 450 theaters will be showing the hobbit with HFR – that's 48fps high frame rate – and a decent chunk of those will be adding Dolby Atmos surround sound to the mix.
