Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk to debut at NYFF

2016-08-23 18:00

New York — Ang Lee's 3-D, high-frame rate drama Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk will premiere at the New York Film Festival.

Lincoln Center's Film Society announced the selection Monday, giving a festival landing spot to one of the fall's most distinct releases. Lee also premiered his previous film, the 3-D Life of Pi, at the New York Film Festival in 2012.

The film, adapted from Ben Fountain's novel, is about an American war hero being celebrated on a victory tour at an NFL game. Lee shot it at a 120-frame rate, far faster than the usual 24 frames per second. Peter Jackson experimented with a 48-frame rate in The Hobbit trilogy.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk will debut 14 October at the festival, ahead of its 11 November release from Sony Pictures.
