No dumb questions [In reply to] Can't Post

4K, 2K, 5K, etc., are rough expressions of display and camera resolutions. They are an approximate count of the number of pixels the device can render along the long edge of its image rectangle. Thus, 4K resolution is approximately 4,000 pixels wide. 2K (which accounts for most of the digital projectors we're used to seeing in theaters) has about half that number of pixels along the same edge, so the image projected has half the detail. The RED cameras that Jackson shot with are capable of 5K capture resolution, but there currently aren't any commercial projectors (that I'm aware of) that will display that resolution.

A chart of the newer 4K projectors and displays now commonly available can be found in the Wikipedia article on 4K resolution.

So if we see The Hobbit in a large chain cinema [In reply to] Can't Post

Is it more than likely the film will be at 4K resolution? I've emailed my local cinema for details on whether they will be showing it at 48fps and 4K but they haven't got back to me.

To be honest [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not entirely sure how likely it is that your local chain will have installed a 4K projector; I haven't been following the industry statistics at all. I would guess it depends on the population in your area and whether the chain owners feel that the specific venue draws (or will draw) enough audience to justify the expense.

On the whole, my best guess is that 2K are still far more common than 4K, but that it will be fast changing. Hopefully your theater will respond saying they've just installed a shiny new one.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

So it's somewhere between 2:40 to 3 hours? [In reply to] Can't Post

Seems like those are the running times being thrown around at this point.

There's usually 10 minutes of commercials/trailers before movies here in Norway [In reply to] Can't Post

So that narrows it down to between 2:40 and 2:50 Wink
