Update: Warner Bros. has stepped in to defend "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" against the recent reports that all the newfangled technology and filmmaking techniques in Peter Jackson's new Middle-earth epic will make you hurl.
The studio has issued the following statement, according to Deadline:
"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."
