News from Sin City!!

Hey guys!

 

Was just surfing the net and found out that Las Vegas is hosting a CinemaCon today (Tuesday April 24th, 2012 to be exact) at which they will be showing a 10 minute preview or teaser of Jackson's prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy:  The Hobbit! 

 

There are more details at the Hollywood Reader online. 

Check it out!

I think its going to leak out onto Youtube very soon so keep your eyes pealed and let us know if there is anything to see anywhere on the net and I'll do the same.

 

Cheers!

I assume the footage has yet to be uploaded, but here is a review of the presentation at CinemaCon.

I read the review FirstBorn,

I can understand what the reviewer was saying. I have watched beloved movies of mine in "Incredible HD" only to have the feeling that I was watching a stripped down 'behind the scenes version of it. It seems like HD and this new 48fps concept eliminates the lighting filters put on them during the shoot making once epic scenes look like the "filmed before a live studio audience".

I don't know. To Jackson's credit he did warn the viewers at CinemaCon that they were watching a rough version of it, so once again I'll reserve my opinion until I see it for myself.

It was exciting to read about certain scenes that will play out.

To All:

You should hit the link that FirstBorn posted and tell the forum what you think about what is written.

Thank you FirstBorn for directing us to that page.

I'm afraid not my dear Bilbo Baggins.


Fingers are crossed though...

I'm finding it difficult to understand how the thing could look too sharp and smooth? Surely the sharper the image the better?

I think I understand, Mr. Baggins. It's like how I see HDTV stuff. Because it looks so clear, the way the actors move doesn't flow the way it did before. Also, the picture is so clear that it's easy to see that it's a set instead of being filmed "on location". Before, with regular tv/movies, it looked more real on screen because it wasn't so sharp.
