No Extra Charge for The Hobbit At 48FPS Screening

While Peter Jackson would probably prefer as many theaters as possible screen The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at 48 frames per second (FPS), Warner Bros indicated a few weeks ago only a few locations would actually screen the movie at the frame speed. Most of the likely 3000 screens in the US will have it in traditional 24fps speed. However, if you are in that rare (unannounced) location that gives you a chance to watch it at 48FPS, you now have an extra incentive to give it a try as theaters have agreed to not charge extra for the format. At least for this movie. I am sure they reserve the right to add a surcharge to the sequel if the new format proves popular.
