'The Hobbit' Takes the Safe Route: 24 FPS Goes Wide, 48 FPS Goes Limited

Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" was supposed to lead the 48 fps revolution in the film industry, but now it looks like its debut will be more whimper than bang. After the film's 48 fps footage received mixed reactions at CinemaCon, and the filmmaker took the safe route at Comic-Con by screening "The Hobbit" footage at only 24 fps, Warner Bros. has opted to give the increased frame-per-second "Hobbit" a limited release on December 14, with the standard frame rate version releasing wide.
