Euuugh I hope he doesn't do the 48fps thing OR 3D. I saw the 48fps trailer for The Hobbit and it looked like a made-for-TV movie. Judging from the reviews I've read about the film, I'm not alone on that one. Not sure why Peter Jackson is so enamored with it. Not to mention, I just don't think it's in the budget. Hobbit's budget is a bit more flexible because there's an absolute guarantee that it will be a box office boom; it will eeeeasily surpass the 1B mark internationally. X-Men doesn't come with that guarantee; I'd be genuinely surprised if DOFP breaks 500M. As desperately as FOX wants to compete with Avengers, the X-Men will never come close .
