A little earlier today, Hall of Fire took a detour into movie-land to pull apart the brand-new trailer for The Battle of the Five Armies.
If you missed the discussion, or found the messy first hour very frustrating (sorry about that, it was unusually difficult to direct discussion), then here’s the log from the final two once we got a system going and started analysing what Peter Jackson put in front of us scene by scene.
Hope you find it illuminating.
Oh, and usual warning for movie spoilers over the page!
YouTube recently enabled High Frame Rate (HFR) playback supporting 60 frames per second and the new Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies trailer is the first to take advantage of High Frame Rate. Click to watch the video, and when it starts click on the gear in the lower right and choose 1080p60.
Peter Jackson famously filmed the entire Hobbit trilogy in HFR, and every film has been available in theaters in this unique smooth format.
