Yeah, i hope thats not true. 4k please!Also I'm not that excited if the 2K finish is confirmed
Wondering if the movie will have a 4K or 2K finish. I know 4K is a massive chunk more of data for VFX, and as someone who doesn't know details about that milieu, I'll believe them on their word, but when I heard that Spiderman and Prometheus were all being finished in 2K, I was a bit surprised though.
The girl with the Dragon Tattoo was finished in 4K, right? Of course that didn't nearly have the amount of FX that Spiderman and Prometheus had.
Still, I would think that The Hobbit would have the budget and the scale to be one of the first really big movies to be finished in 4K.
Spidey and Dragon Tat both got 4K. Spidey 3D was 2K and the VFX shots were resized for 4K as they were for the Sam Raimi films.

More info on the lack of 48fps screenings in Daily Variety:
And on the opposite side, here's ILM's Dennis Muren and also VFX guru Doug Trumbull arguing for the adoption of 48fps:
This piece offers this interesting tidbit about The Hobbit:
"Anywhere between 6 and 12 TB of camera data was generated on each day of the six-days-a-week production, with about two hours of 48fps 3D screenings taking place daily. A total frame-to-frame equivalent of 24 million feet of film was processed."
Yikes... 12TB per day... For a year.
Well, it looks like The Hobbit is getting some limited edition Oakley 3D shades. I don't know if they are Gascan frames like the last few limited editions but they will apparently come with a nice little "Sting" pin.
Bravo, great film on shot on RED!
