Paramount Is Preparing Theaters For Extra-High Frame Rate/3D Versions Of Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Starring Will Smith

Quote:
The note sent to exhibitors comes with instructions on how to test whether the theater is equipped
to handle the HFR technology. The letter states the film will have versions presented in 60fps 3D and
120fps 2D. Of course, one has to assume this is in addition to the typical 24fps 3D and boring old 24fps
2D.

Paramount is taking a big risk releasing Ang Lee's science-fiction action film in 120fps.

Quote:
One of the big question marks on Paramount’s upcoming slate is “Gemini Man,”
a science-fiction action movie starring Will Smith, Clive Owen, Mary Elizabeth
Winstead, and Benedict Wong. Launching an original sci-fi property has proven
risky at the box office as of late, and making matters more interesting is that Lee
shot the film in 3D at 120 frames per second and 4k resolution. The filmmaker
did the same thing with his previous movie, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,”
but the gamble of shooting at five times the normal frame rate (24fps) did not
pay off as critics largely complained the footage was hyper-real and looked like a
video game.

Critics had it in for "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" anyway. The frame rate just gave them something else to complain about. (Yes, I saw the film, and in 120 fps too.)

I'm not a big Ang Lee fan. I haven't seen Billy Lynn in any frame rate. The movies I have seen from him are ok.

Lol. Glad you're back. We all need a walkabout periodically.

This movie kind of reminds me of Looper with Bruce Willis.

Give Billy Lynn a spin sometime, it not the Life of Pi or The Hulk.
