"The Hobbit" films are pushing the boundaries of film technology by being released both at 48 frames per second and in 3D, and now we're seeing some of the results of that.
Click the link below to see the first images of the special edition RealD 3D glasses that will be distributed in select cinemas for the release of "The Hobbit." A description for the glasses says that they're inspired by Middle-earth specifically for the upcoming film.
There has been some backlash to Jackson's decision to shoot at 48 frames per second, but he has said it will make the overall 3D experience better. I will reserve judgment until I'm sitting in the cinema — hopefully wearing these glasses — and watching the movie.
