"The Hobbit".- New Zealand film director Peter Jackson (“The Lords of the Rings”, “The Lovely Bones", "King Kong") has unveiled 10 minutes of footage of his last film, “The Hobbit”, which is intended to be a pre-sequel of the famous “The Lords of the Rings” trilogy.
The footage has received mixed critics when shown at the CinemaCon convention celebrated in Las Vegas, the United States.
The innovative point in “The Hobbit” is the fact that it has been shot at a rate of 48 frames per second and not at a rate of 24 frames per second which is the usual in the industry. This decision was taken as Jackson believes that 48 frames per second deliver a better quality image.
It is expected that the first of the two parts of “The Hobbit” reaches the movie theatres next month of December in the midst of Christmas season under the title of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and using 3D technology.
On the other hand, the second part of the series which was filmed at the same time than the first part will reach the big screens one year later, in December 2013, under the title of “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”.
