Despite mediocre reviews and controversies over its 48 frames per second tech, Tolkien fans were out in force this weekend for the opening of The Hobbit.
The controversy over 48 frames a second is not dying down.
"When you have something new, you want to make sure it works. This is unique, it’s different and we’ll have to see how people adjust to it."
Future movies are likely to move much faster than the current 24 frames a second.
Footage from the upcoming first installment of The Hobbit was recently screened at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas.
