Only 14 theaters will show Gemini Man in 120fps; None will be in 4K

Director Ang Lee got down to push the boundaries of moviemaking with the Will Smith automobile GEMINI MAN, taking pictures it at a groundbreaking HFR (Excessive Body Charge) of 120fps and in 4K 3D. Critics who received to see the film on this format have stated Lee has made a technical marvel that calls for to be seen on the large display. Sadly, nobody will get to see the film the way it was initially meant, as Paramount is barely releasing the film with the HFR hooked up in very choose theaters throughout the nation, and none of them can be in 4K.

Polygon was in a position to verify with Paramount that solely 14 theaters throughout the nation will present the film at 120fps, however that they are going to be proven in the usual 2K, not the 4K with which it was filmed. As for these theaters that do have showings at a better body fee, they are going to be at 60fps (nonetheless vastly increased than the trade commonplace 24fps). Polygon received the record of AMC theaters that can have the 120fps 3D variations:

AMC Aventura Mall 24 – Miami, FL

AMC Century Metropolis 15 – Los Angeles, CA

AMC Del Amo 18 – Los Angeles, CA

AMC Disney Springs 24 – Orlando, FL

AMC Elmwood Palace 20 – New Orleans, LA

AMC Flatiron Crossing 14 – Denver, CO

AMC Hawthorn 12 – Chicago, IL

AMC Lincoln Sq. 13 – New York, NY

AMC Metreon 16 – San Francisco, CA

AMC North Level 12 – Atlanta, GA

AMC River East 21 – Chicago, IL

AMC City Sq. 18 – Las Vegas, NV

AMC White Marsh 16 – Baltimore, MD

AMC Willowbrook 24 – Houston, TX

The report notes how for the film’s premiere on the TCL Chinese language Theatre in Los Angeles Paramount outfitted the theater with state-of-the-art projection tech to offer the best possible technical specs for the viewers. As for the film’s screenings around the globe, some choose Odeon theaters within the U.Okay. can have the 120fps exhibits, whereas a number of theaters in Asia will be capable of meet the 120fps 4K commonplace.

This then begs the query of why Lee set out to do that in any respect if Paramount wasn’t set to launch the film because it was meant, and with theaters not outfitted to take action anyway. Lee informed Polygon it was all achieved to make “Junior,” the youthful model of Smith’s character, have a way of realism throughout each dramatic scenes and large motion set items – all whereas realizing audiences in all probability wouldn’t be capable of see it within the filmed format.

“It’s honest. Individuals can be intimated by 3D and extra information and extra particulars,” Lee stated. “It may be scary and most of the people gained’t strive it. But it surely additionally [gave] us extra materials to work with. We had 40 instances extra information, which meant 40 instances extra likelihood of flopping or succeeding. You simply have extra to work with, and in 3D, it’s sharper. Due to that, it made me wish to do that. You may’t placed on make-up or erase wrinkles or have his son play him and name {that a} clone.”

The hope is that folks with costly TVs will be capable of see the film because it was meant when it hits 4K Blu-ray, which is, I suppose, one technique to see what Lee meant. “The scary half is that the TV is forward of films,” he stated. “[But] I want to present them it the suitable means.”

So yeah, except you reside in any of those areas you gained’t be capable of see the film within the HFR Lee meant, and for those who aren’t dwelling wherever exhibiting it in any form of HFR, then it’s a typical moviegoing expertise for you. Whereas Lee defined that it was all for the sake of bringing the film to life, it nonetheless feels low cost for the studio (and Lee himself) to push such a technically distinctive film, just for folks to not see it the best way it needs to be seen. I suppose child steps are wanted to advance how we watch films on the large display, however nonetheless, it seems like cash wasted and expectations tarnished for these anxious to see what Lee completed. 

GEMINI MAN is in theaters October 11.
