Today at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, footage from Warner Brothers’ upcoming blockbusters The Hobbit and The Dark Knight Rises was screened for the first time.

Collider was one site present and tweeted out the following reviews. Interestingly, they didn’t seem too pleased with the new 48 fps frame rate on The Hobbit footage.

We’re sure additional information will come out of these screenings soon (we want to hear about specific scenes!) and will update you when those arrive.

Updated: We now have reports from various sources describing the footage that was shown. Enjoy!

From CinemaBlend (via CBM):

I understood every word that Bane said. It should be noted that the theater I was in featured some of the most advanced technology in the projection industry, so I don’t know if they changed the audio or if it was just the presentation, but it did raise my confidence in that aspect of the film.

Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) dressed as a maid before ripping off the white frills and revealing her black dress

James Gordon (Gary Oldman), as seen in the teaser trailer from last summer, lying in a hospital bed in bad shape

Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) sitting in his Batcave, which still looks very much like a cave

Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox together in Wayne Enterprises

A team of police officers in raid gear slowly touring through what appear to be subway tunnels

Batman’s new vehicle, The Bat, taking to the air and spinning twisting as it flies over Gotham

Catwoman, in her full costume, leaning down and stealing stuff from a safe

Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) and Bruce Wayne sharing an intimate kiss

Catwoman sitting on the Batpod and firing at a blocked tunnel in the distance

Miranda Tate saying, “You’ve given them everything,” and Bruce Wayne replying, “Not yet.”

Alfred (Michael Caine) talking about the difficulty of getting back into his old routine.

John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) the footage shown today once again didn’t give us any dialogue from the character, it did show quite a bit of him – and in some interesting situations.

In the scenes shown Blake flashes a badge and is quickly seen wielding a shotgun, but the most interesting cut featured a giant bridge crumbling in an explosion and then a reaction shot from Gordon-Levitt. Just as with trailers, it’s hard to know if that will actually be the cut in the final film or if it was done for dramatic effect, but it most definitely had the latter.

From IGN (via CBM):

We see lots of Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle here. We see her posing as a maid leaving Wayne Manor at night, as well as Catwoman breaking into a hidden wall safe. We see her kicking gunmen in the streets, firing the Batpod’s weapons, but most importantly a dialogue scene between her and Batman. Catwoman tells Batman, “You’ve given them everything!” Batman cryptically replies, “I haven’t given them everything. Not yet.” Oh, Gotham, will Batman pay the ultimate price for your sorry, corrupt ass?! That creeping sense of finality really is everywhere in the presentation of TDKR, from its “The Legend Ends” tagline to even Nolan himself stressing this as the conclusion of his trilogy and the final chapter of their story.

Other sweet stuff we spotted in the footage? Bruce working in his new Batcave, as well as a very “we were destined for this”/finding each other in the crowd showdown between Batman and Bane. It was like two mythic gunfighters meeting for the duel to decide who lives or dies. This town literally isn’t big enough for the both of them. We also get some nice Alfred moments here, a very intriguing shot of a mystery man at that stronghold in India they began filming at last year, as well as a hot and heavy shot of Bruce and Selina kissing.

    i’m going to be broke by the time this movie comes out due to all the other awesome movies that are coming out this year…….. :-(

    I’m not sure how seeing a movie that looks so real would be a bad thing. Sounds pretty awesome to me. And if the 3d causes less eye strain I might actually go see it in that format. Though they still need 3d glasses that aren’t awful to wear for someone that already has glasses.

    • Phantomoca

      Wear contacts.

        Wow! What are these contacts you speak of? I’ve never before considered them.

        Obvious sarcasm aside. I prefer glasses as they don’t cause any irritation for me. And they’re far more of a pain to deal with than glasses in my opinion.

    I can’t wait until more movies are filmed in the 48 – 60fps format, still wondering what took so long. 

  • FlamingC

    48fps is good because not only do you get to catch more detail when things move, it also doesn’t flicker when you see 3D. I’ve not seen anything in 48fps but i really wish that normal theaters will show it in the format in IMAX 3D when the film releases.

    As for the Dark Knight Rises, of course it was great! Nolan Noes what he is doing
    Nolan Noes…

    Dark knight!! Aahhhhh

    So who actually has the exchange with Batman about “you’ve given them everything” – Miranda Tate or Catwoman??

  • akacj18

    im intrigued by this 48fps talk… it seems like both a negative and a positive? hmmm

  • gcw07

    I’m a little concerned about the Hobbit framerate problems. My Samsung TV has a feature called motionflow and it really gives stuff a strange look. It looks real, but at the same time it seems really fake. So I hope they end up fixing this problem and not make the whole thing strange. It is very early so who knows by the time it is released.

    • 7Starrchasers

      ugh I HATE that look. It makes everything look like Bold and the Beautiful, but I really hope that the Hobbit won’t be like that.

    Since there are so many people against it, let me say for the others, I LOVE smooth-motion! At first, I didn’t like it, but now I can never go back. Keep pushing the technology Mr. Jackson! Don’t give into the “back in my day” geezers. Jk :)
