Warner Bros. Plan Limited Release for “The Hobbit” HFR

David S. Cohen, Variety:

Warner Bros. is convinced that high-frame-rate movies are the next big thing — but they’re keeping the first HFR release fairly small.

According to source familiar with Warner’s release plans for Peter Jackson’s first “Hobbit,” the HFR version will go out to only select locations, perhaps not even into all major cities.

HFR (high frame rate) in the case of “The Hobbit” is 48 fps. I hope the HFR version comes to Silicon Valley.
