You bet! It really was nice of them to let us have that much of a look behind the scenes, wish we didn't have to wait until the end of 2012 to see the first one.

I agree, I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Oh lord, is this one going to be in 3D? I wonder how hard I'll have to look to find a decent theater playing it in 2D?

Where have you been? It's being shot natively in 3D @ 48fps.

I dunno, Franin. This movie has "see me in the theater" written all over it.

it's won't be 48 FPS on BD. Aren't you curious how that will look? You can only see it in a theater.

As the biggest change in how movies are presented in nearly a century, I can't imagine NOT seeing this in an appropriate theater.

The closest reference would be Cameron's T2 3D: Battle Across Time "featurette." He shot it in dual camera 70mm at 30 frames/sec.

AFAIK, no other 3D movie has been shot at a frame rate higher than 24 frames/sec.

Won't the higher frame rate have a bit of that smooth-motion look you see on displays with frame interpolation? Granted it won't be 60fps like typical video, so it won't have that "soap opera effect" as some have nick-named it. But it certainly won't have the 24fps cadence we become used to. I think some of the people excited about it will have second thoughts upon seeing actual results.

I think it'll be somewhat offset by the alternating-frames-per-eye phenomenon of 3D projection, though I could be mistaken.

The soap opera effect will not be as pronounced as it would be for a 2D shoot at a higher frame rate. It will help to get both the background and foreground into focus. Motion blur is more of a viewing issue with live action 3D than it is with 2D. Shooting 3D at 48 FPS helps to allievate this. The issue of; "where do I look (within the two frames) so I don't get eye strain" is what I am talking about.

So I'm guessing we should be seeing the new projectors soon that are able to handle 48FPS?

No. This is a commerical cinema advancement. Not for home video. And right now, it is really an experiment. Two movies don't make an industry wide change.

Existing digital cinema projectors (most of them) can handle 48FPS

Well there you go shows my full extent knowledge of projectors.

Don't care too much for the commercial cinema side of things so I'll patiently wait for its blu ray release.

As you almost always do.

I, on the other hand will see it . . . as the director intended . . . in 3D, shot at native 48 FPS. Really looking forward to it.
