9.20.12 New Hobbit Trailer Hits Web
Good Morning, Everyone,
Jump to the link below to Books & Review article by Cole Garner Hill on new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (in theaters Dec. 14, 2012). The clip runs for about 2 ½ minutes and looks fantastic (my kids are already excited about the film, so this clip made them groan when they realized that we’re still more than a couple months away from the premiere)!
The article also includes a discussion by director Peter Jackson about his choice to use high-resolution 48frames/sec technology for the film (going against the current industry standard of 24frames/sec that’s been around since the 1920s).
The end of Hill’s article gives an appreciated mention of the favorable critical reception for J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit back when it was released in 1937, as well as comments by C. S. Lewis about the originality of the book.
