TwinIon Posted October 8, 2019 Share Posted October 8, 2019 I know there isn't a great love for high frame rate in film (despite an ever growing love for it in games), but I remain very interested in what filmmakers can do with it. Ang Lee remains one of the few prominent directors pushing for different formats, shooting Gemini Man at an impressive in 4k at 120 FPS in 3D. However, no theater in the US will get that combination of specs. (They did bring in a special projector for the premier, and several screens in Asia will show it with all the bells and whistles). There are 12 Dolby Cinema theaters in the US that will show the film at 120fps in 3D, but only at 2K resolution. Those theaters are listed in the article. All other HFR (high frame rate) showings, including IMAX and Dolby Cinema, will be at 60fps, also in 2K. 2D showings will be at a standard 24fps, but they will be in 4K. With a 38% on RT with only 34 reviews, I don't think I'm going to be able to justify going up to LA to see this in 120fps. There are a few theaters around me that will show it at 60fps, so I might venture farther than normal to try that out. We still don't know what higher frame rate Avatar 2 will be shown in, and Cameron has been teasing glasses free 3D for a while now. Maybe that film will convince theaters to invest in some new projectors. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
