Ang Lee preps cinemas for new HFR 3D movie

Gemini Man will be produced in 60fps 3D and 120fps 2D versions

Director Ang Lee is prepping cinema owners for the release of his new film Gemini Man, shot using high frame rate (HFR) technology.

Paramount Pictures has sent a letter to cinema exhibitors in the US containing instructions for testing their venue’s capacity for handling HFR.

The note also states the movie will be produced in 60fps 3D and 120fps 2D versions.

Gemini Man stars Will Smith, Clive Owen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the story of an assassin hunted by a younger clone of himself. It is due to be released in the US in October.

The Oscar-winning director previously used HFR on 2016’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, hailing the technology as the future of cinema.
