Warner Bros. descended on Sin City for the annual CinemaCon with a number of anticipated titles tucked under its metaphorical arm. The studio teased footage from Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ the musical ‘Rock of Ages,’ Will Ferrell’s political comedy ‘The Campaign,’ Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ and a little indie you might have heard of called ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’

Today at CinemaCon, Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson premiered 10 minutes of footage from 'The Hobbit,' shown in the new 48 frames-per-second (fps) 3D method of filmmaking, a technique Jackson and friend James Cameron have championed as the next generation of moviegoing.
Today's reactions to the 48fps have been vocal and varied, from those focusing on the footage of 'The Hobbit' itself, to others complaining about the look of 48fps, which doubles the frame rate of the industry standard 24fps.
