Pioneering 120fps HFR Cinema with Paramount Pictures’ Gemini Man, from Legendary Filmmaker Ang Lee

Three-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee’s much anticipated new film, Paramount Pictures Gemini Man premieres on October 6th at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles – a movie palace situated on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This historic location serves as the perfect showcase for a film that stretches technological boundaries by being produced in 4K resolution, 3D, and shot at a high frame rate (HFR) of 120 fps (frames per second).

Ang Lee is well-known as a pioneer of HFR filmmaking. Gemini Man is an action-thriller starring Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative who can seemingly predict his every move. The film demonstrates the advantages of the format and the progress of HFR technologies to moviegoers. The screening at the star-studded event will use CINITY, the new HFR cinema projection system developed by Christie for Huaxia Film Distribution, which offers the latest advances in HFR screening and Christie® RealLaser™ illumination technology.

Christie’s strategic partnership with Huaxia Film Distribution and GDC Technology Limited resulted in the development of the CINITY Cinema System based on two Christie CP4450-RGB HFR projectors.

Shot on location in the USA, Colombia and Hungary, Gemini Man is distributed by Paramount Pictures, a company which has set the standard in cinema for over a century.  This makes the company well-placed to showcase the hyper-clarity and realism synonymous with HFR presentation to audiences in the USA and across the globe.
 
For the premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre, the CINITY cinema system will be configured to produce a brightness of up to 28-foot lamberts using Christie’s laser optical system technology, delivering the finest 3D-viewing experience in 4K resolution at 120fps for each eye.
 
Paramount is distributing Gemini Man in a range of versions including 2D 4K 24fps through 3D 2K 60fps for use with current cinema projectors, 3D 2K 120fps for Dolby Cinema, and has mastered a 3D 4K 120fps version in partnership with Christie which will be shown at the premiere and at select locations in Asia.

“We’re proud to be presenting Ang Lee’s incredible film to the premiere audience in 4K resolution, 3D, and at 120 frames a second (fps) using the CINITY system with Christie RealLaser technology – a bold specification that exceeds all DCI-compliant presentation systems,” says Kyle Davies, President of Domestic Distribution for Paramount Pictures. “We are excited by this new technology and look forward to its roll out in theatres worldwide.”
 
Lee, who is known for both his dramatic storytelling and adoption of new technologies, won one Oscarâ for the best foreign language film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and two directing Oscarsâ for Brokeback Mountain and Life of Pi. His 2016 film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, was the first ever feature film to be shot in 120 fps high frame rate – over twice Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, shot at 48 fps, and five times the standard speed of 24 fps.

“Since working with Ang Lee and having created an HFR preview shown at NAB and IBC in 2016, we have demonstrated to the world that Christie is the only projector manufacturer capable of showing 4K, 3D and 120 fps per eye on a giant cinema screen,” says Brian Claypool, vice president, Product Management at Christie. “Our partnership with Huaxia Film to develop and promote premium format movies, has led us to helping to bring Ang Lee’s vision to life with his latest film, and the results are simply spectacular. It is exciting to be leading the way in this field and helping to deliver exciting new experiences to audiences.”

Christie’s RealLaser projectors comply with DCI standards and deliver more than 95 percent of Rec. 2020 without filtering or color correction. The rich, deep, and intense colors along with high contrast create astounding visuals, while delivering significant operational efficiencies.
