We’ve all seen movies that made us want to puke–especially during the summer–but Warner Bros is taking exception to a silly spate of reports that the revolutionary 48-frames per second format of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey had left some audience members nauseous and dizzy, even complaining of migraines. This seems to have all the veracity of those rumors that Entertainment Tonight‘s Mary Hart was creating seizures among watchers prone to them (the rest of us just felt our brain cells atrophy listening to her inane, gushy sweet celeb coverage). Here is Warner Bros’ statement:
“We have been screening the full-length HFR 3D presentation of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY extensively and feedback has been extremely positive, with none of thousands who have seen the film projected in this format expressing any of the issues described by two anonymous sources in media reports. We share the filmmakers’ belief that by offering filmgoers the additional choice of HFR 3D, alongside traditional viewing formats, they have an opportunity to be part of a groundbreaking advancement in the moviegoing experience and we look forward to having audiences everywhere share in this new way of storytelling.”
