On October 14th, Ang Lee’s latest film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk will be the first-ever film to be presented in 3D, 4K and at 120 fps. It will be premiering at the New York Film Festival in a specially outfitted theater that can show it as Lee filmed it and meant for it to be seen.
The movie is about a soldier returning home from a particularly brutal battle, made all the more visceral because of the high frame rate.
“I thought Billy’s journey, which is both intimate and epic, and told almost entirely from his point of view, lent itself particularly well to the emotion and intensity that this new approach fosters,” said Lee. “[Technology] should always be in service of artistic expression, to make it strong and fresh, because story and drama matter most.”
