Peter Jackson loves 3D

Dec 24 2012, 4:20am CST | by

Sir Peter Jackson thinks 3D is the way forward.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' director has defended the use of new 48 frame-per-second 3D technology in his three-part Middle-earth adventure epic and says that when new state-of-the-art projectors come into cinemas in a year's time, every filmmaker will want to use the visually enhancing process.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''As a director, I've always been somebody that tries to transport you from your seat into the adventure of the screen in other words. I don't want to restrict the audience as observers; I like that sense of involvement which is why my natural directing style involves moving the camera around a lot and using wider angle lenses.For me 3D is just something that can enhance that experience.

''I think 3D technology is going to improve. Certainly what needs to improve is the projection of 3D in the sense that you put your glasses on and the light level drops and I know it's always a frustrating thing. Hopefully that's only got a year to go before the laser projectors come in, the next generation of projectors.''

Despite being an advocate for new technology, Peter finds it depressing that the public chooses to watch films on small gadgets such as iPads and hopes he can encourage people to fall back in love with the cinema experience.

He said: ''There is a degree of jeopardy at the moment with all the opportunities we have to see movies now. I really hate the idea that I'm a director making a film for an iPad, that's kind of depressing. I think I would go on lie on a beach in Fiji instead!

''It is a time when cinema audiences are dwindling and as an industry we just do what we can to enhance the experience of cinema-making.''

'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' Trailer Marches Into War

Jul 28 2014 2:32pm CDT | Source: movies.com

Originally the last film in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit series was to be called There and Back Again. However, Jackson and the studio decided to add in a third movie to the franchise, and that title was dropped because it no longer represented the last movie. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was declared to be a more fitting title. It's also a rather bold way to declare your movie is going to have some ...

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES Trailer Has Arrived!

Jul 28 2014 2:28pm CDT | Source: aintitcool

Bilbo Baggins' journey at last draws to a close. Read the full article on AICN Jeremy here... This is an unexpectedly downbeat trailer for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT trilogy. It teases a little bit of action, but mostly, it feels like a melancholy farewell to a creative venture that began over fifteen years ago. Interesting use of "Pippin's Song". Check it out...  THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES lunges i ...
