Initial reactions to the 48 frames per second version of Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' were less than pleasant. Those who saw it said that the difference between effects and real actors and sets was glaring, which is a huge problem for a movie as digitally enhanced as this one. The latest impressions though, from folks who have seen it with more post work done, is generally positive. Sadly though, you might not get to find out one way or the other.
A source familiar with Warner's release plans said that the company won't be giving 48fps versions of the movie to all of the theaters that can handle the high frame rate. ""The high frame-rate (HFR) version will go out to only select locations, perhaps not even into all major cities," the source said, adding that if reception is positive from the first one, they'll be expanding the release for the second and third films.
