‘The Hobbit’ director, Peter Jackson, posted a message to fans via his Facebook page before jetting off to San Diego and Comic-Con.
An excerpt follows:
Looking forward to giving fans a glimpse of the Hobbit, answer questions and share a few stories about our return to Middle-earth.
For those of you who won’t be attending Comic Con, we have several things in the pipeline to share with you over the next few weeks. Our new video will be ready very soon – in fact our video blog crew has already left for Comic Con, and we’ll be capturing a behind the scenes look at our experiences there. We’re talking about possibly including a few clips from our Hobbit reel in the blog.
We are also working on our next trailer, which you should expect to see sometime in September.
Jackson continues his message to fans by explaining in more detail his decision to screen The Hobbit reel at Comic-Con in 2-D and 24fps, a move that surprised and disappointed some. The reasons he gives are valid ones and he ultimately leaves it up to viewers to decide come December if they want to see the film at the higher film rate of 48fps, provided there is a theater near them that will have it.
