The Hobbit brings HFR 3D to UK cinemas

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be the first film to be shown in the UK in 3D using High Frame Rate (HFR) technology

 

Next Thursday a little film you may have heard of called The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released in the UK, and it’s pretty much guaranteed to eat up the lion’s share of the Christmas box office. However, what you may not have heard is that it’ll be the first film to be shown in 3D and captured using High Frame Rate (HFR) technology.

HFR, apparently, offers the most realistic viewing experience available will current technology. The way it does this is by displaying the visuals at 48 frames-per-second, enhancing picture clarity and reducing strobing and motion blur in action sequences, making the film look closer to what the human eye actually sees.

Of course, since the film is being shown in 3D, viewers will still need to wear 3D glasses to enjoy the film.
 
If you’re a frequent traveller through the realms of Middle Earth and this all sounds up your street, bear in mind, this HFR tech will only be available in 29 Vue Cinemas in the UK.

At the time of this writing Vue can’t confirm which of its cinemas will be showing The Hobbit in 3D HFR, so the cinema chain is advising punters to call its sales representatives on 08712 240 240. It also anticipates the HFR 3D Hobbit screenings will be extremely popular, so it’s worth calling them as soon as possible to secure tickets.
