Not many would dare stand against Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theatres this weekend, but there are at least a few small indie releases offering some alternatives to non-Tolkien devotees. The early projections for The Hobbit are predicting a possible $100 million opening in the U.S., which would be quite a bit more than any of The Lord of the Rings films made a decade ago, but reviews have been lukewarm at best. For those interested in checking out the movie in 48fps High Frame Rate, consult this list of capable theatres. In limited release, we also have the indie dramedy Save the Date starring Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie, plus the Alan Cumming drama Any Day Now and the ’80s activism documentary Let Fury Have the Hour.
