Tweets Of The Week

The Hobbit’s 48 frames, Man Of Steel and Patrick Stewart’s Christmas tree are the hot topics on the latest Tweets Of The Week

Even if the idea of watching Halflings, dwarves and wizards wander across New Zealand makes you break out in hives, you have to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to be part of the discussion on 48fps.

We already know X-Men Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer is a fan and James Cameron is likely to make the two Avatar sequels in 48fps (or higher) but now that The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey has opened around the globe more genre film-makers have been weighing in on the debate surrounding 48fps and 3D:

@ManMadeMoon "Oh! 3D 48fps. NOW I love 3D!" What no part of my brain is saying right now.

@DAVID_A_SLADE So I'll be seeing the Hobbit this weekend in 3D at 48 fps all heavily compressed 12 year old file format. Shouldn't they update that?

Actually, none of those really slag off 48fps, but we found it to be very distracting, so consider yourself warned!
