Peter Jackson says he hopes technology he used on his "Hobbit" movie trilogy will help create a "magical" experience that will encourage people to return to theatres. Jackson spoke at a news conference in Wellington hours before the Wednesday premiere of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." He shot at 48 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 to give the film greater clarity. He likened the technology to the leap from vinyl records to CDs.
