Martin Freeman says ‘Hobbit’ is ‘probably even better’ than ‘Lord of the Rings’

At the world premiere in New Zealand, Martin Freeman, the star of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” praised his director, Peter Jackson, and proclaimed that the film is as good, if not better than the original “Lord of the Rings” films.

“He’s done it again,” Freeman Wednesday. “If it’s possible, it’s probably even better than The Lord of the Rings. I think he’s surpassed it.”

The Coventry Telegraph detailed how the Air New Zealand plane painted with Hobbit characters flew low over Wellington’s Embassy Theater and how ten thousands or more turned out to see the stars walk down the red carpet for the event.

Jackson compares his new technology of using 48 frames per second (compared to 24) as the success for the film’s appearance.

“I really think 48 frames is pretty terrific and I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction,” he said. “It’s been talked about for so long, but finally the film is being released and people can decide for themselves.”

Jackson’s filming of his lauded LOTR trilogy and now The Hobbit in New Zealand has created a film industry there. The film will open in UK cinemas on December 13 and in the USA on December 14.
