"Billy Lynn" is Visible in 3D 4K 120 FPS - In Only Two Theaters in the U.S.

Ang Lee is a true 3D hero daring to push the HFR enveloppe one step further: His "Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk" is the first movie ever shot in 120 frames per second (and 4K stereoscopic 3D).

In its world premiere, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk was shown exactly as intended at the AMC Lincoln Square (New York City, USA). According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s currently the only theater in the U.S. that can handle 3D 4K 120 FPS. A second U.S. theater is expected to get an upgrade to handle the format — possibly the ArcLight Hollywood. Elsewhere, there are plans in place for Billy Lynn to show in its full specs in at least one theater each in Taipei, Beijing, and Shanghai. But don't worry, less demanding formats are on the menu too. Watch Ang Lee explaining how and why here under.
