I'd be alright with all of this if The Hobbit had preceded Lord of the Rings since the follow-up would have a more intricate story and, frankly, more of interest. Instead, this Hobbit duo-logy feels like a regression given how samey it looks and the source material's inferiority.
I get where you're coming from, & I'd be fine with someone creating a different vision of Middle Earth outside of these but it'd be odd doing it within the same continuity & this is going to be a multi billion dollar grosser, there's no way they'd piss off the people expecting the same look & feel. Think how irritated a lot of people are at Spider-Man being rebooted with a new look & feel, & that comes from source material that evolves & reboots constantly as a medium. Del Toro's influence will still be there as the screenplays were developed with him, but they were always going use the same production designers.

Unnecessary. Why not go back and re-shoot the original "trilogy" to be 9 movies while we're at it?

They may mine the appendices, but even so it sounds like these films will have a large portion of (what essentially amounts to) fan fiction. I'm guessing they're going to ramp up the "whole of Middle-Earth is in jeopardy" angle a la LOTR, which isn't truthful to the book. One 3 hour film would have sufficed well enough.

Can we go musket hunt Peter Jackson together? I usually refrain from Utahn justice, but I'm beginning to seethe with rage.

Agreed. They didn't even need a second movie.

Theatres displaying The Hobbit in 48 fps:

48 fps Theater List - 48 FPS Movies

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/255...it-hfr-rollout

Quote:
Talking about the rollout with Deadline, Warner Bros Domestic Distribution President Dan Fellman says that equipment is being tested and glitches are being fixed even now, while the limited rollout is because the technology "is going to change the way people see movies… you have to do it right."

Along with color correction, and the addition of "graininess and filtering," the final footage will reportedly look very different to the footage screened to a mixed response at CinemaCon back in April. Tickets for the HFR screenings likely will cost no more than cinemas already charge for conventional 3D films.

I thought 48 fps would only be available in 3D.

I have not been in here in a while, and because of the conversation regarding Cumberbatch in the upcoming films thread, I just saw that there are going to be three movies.

Fuck it. I don't think I'm going to watch any of it.

Who the fuck is the "Necromancer" anyways?
