Not sure if this is old news, as I'm new to 3D and home theater in general...but this makes me very sad as it was supposed to be shot in 3D if and when it came about.

If you're a fan of Crank and Crank: High Voltage, Statham doesn't sound confident that we're going to see a Crank 3 as the second one didn't do as well as the first one. He said:

It's a shame the last one didn't do that well. I think the first one had a little bit more success and usually if you do a sequel, it usually has to in some ways take a little bit more money than the first one.

This was from Jan. 2011.

The movie will be in 3D and use higher frame rates, a process that James Cameron also has been touting.

My bad, October 2012 is release date in France (thought it was USA):

"The film will be released in France on October 17, 2012 by Wild Bunch, who are also handling international sales. The latter are well underway with acquisitions made for Germany, Italy, Spain and Eastern Europe, among other territories."

An interview with David Heyman with a couple questions about Gravity reveals it'll be a conversion.

http://collider.com/david-heyman-int...beatles/85906/
Quote:
Heyman: Well we’re using technology that’s never seen before. This film will be more immersive, I believe, than anything you’ve seen before. You will really feel like you are in space. It will not be an objective view of space, it will be an immersive view of space. And you know as you say, with Children of Men, he loves these long shots. It’s gonna be a really bold, bold film.

Have you guys talked about doing the project in 3D?

Heyman: Yeah, it will be 3D.

Are you guys filming in 3D?

Heyman: No.

It used to be, people would get very upset when they heard that. But I’ve seen post-conversion that looks really good.

Heyman: And actually, we did some tests. Because this film is being made almost entirely digitally, a huge amount of it’s being made digitally. 3D felt like a really organic—because so much of it’s being done digitally, you can make the 3D in a post process much more easily than if you were shooting all live-action or sitting in a room.

In other words, a rental at best for me, unless it turns out the movie is really, really, really good.

Just saw an article on Piranha 3DD and checked the OP, and it needs a slight update, because it's gonna be shot in 3D.

Quote:


So we did find a location here in Wilmington, and we are shooting in real 3D, continued Gulager. I have to say that I'm not against conversions, but we are shooting in real 3D, and I'm pretty excited!

3D trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9ERIeMwOYs

edit: this is just an old teaser trailer. There'll be a new (probably 2D only for the time being) trailer coming out today.

In hindsight:

4/2010: The Fast and the Furious 5 in 3D?
Quote:
The Fast and the Furious will be a very hard movie to shoot in 3D because of the way we do the car stuff and because the movie has such quick cuts. So we have had many discussions about it. I don’t think we’ll actually shoot in 3D, but there’s a good chance the movie will be in 3D.


Now: Why 'Fast Five' isn't 3-D
Quote:
The test was not great. It was discombobulating and we discovered that the things that we find exciting about 3-D just didn't apply to a 'Fast' film," said Universal Co-chairman Donna Langley. "The way we shot the movie and, more importantly, the way we cut it does not lend itself to 3-D.

Just look at Avatar: wide angles, fluid camera movements, environmental focus. A good fit for 3D.
Now look at Fast Five: long lenses, can't get the cameraman to sit still, etc. 3D's enemy.

And while Transformers is traditionally bang bang like Fast/Furious, Bay shot native and with 3D in mind, and it shows in all the clips we've seen of that movie so far.

See, yet another advantage of shooting native is you get to review in 3D what you JUST shot, instead of having to wait 10 months.

Thor is going to be a smash hit. I'm shocked that the Rotten Tomato meter is 95% positive so far. I guess despite some cliche-seeming trailers (imo), reviewers are saying it hits the nail on the head in terms of blending action and humor.

The converted 3D trailer I saw last December failed to impress me though- especially compared to the Green Hornet trailer in the same reel. Nevertheless, I have no faith in the mainstream audience to be that discerning, so I'm predicting Thor will be a triumph at the box office, both for revenue and 3D marketshare.

Puns not intended!

Brendan Fraser signs on to William Tell: 3D for Moyer, Arclight Films

Quote:
There is no other actor who is more perfectly suited to be the patriot and family man that is William Tell, Moyer said. Brendan was the driving force behind the movie being shot in 3D."

http://www.screendaily.com/news/prod...026961.article

^^ Google "William Tell 3D" site:screendaily.com to bypass the subscribers-only thing.

The article also mentions a Weinstein Company 3D CG movie he'll voice, Escape From Planet Earth. Of course, no confirmation that's stereoscopic 3D. (Thanks for Rango pointing that out)

The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson, and will be released to theaters in both standard theatrical formats as well as 3D in selected locations.

Initial theatrical markets set for June 24 include New York, Los Angeles and theaters near three primary SeaWorld locations: San Diego, San Antonio and Orlando. The film's official premiere is scheduled for Tuesday, June 21 at the large-format 3D theater at SeaWorld in San Diego.

Expansion plans call for the release of the film to additional theaters and cities throughout July and August, with a target of more than 200 locations.

Probably native S3D, but can't know for sure.

Fright Night info

First "Fright Night" trailer: http://www.ign.com/videos/2011/05/13...-night?show=HD

Collider has this article about the edited footage he's seen right there in the studio:

Quote:


While I’ve done a few edit bay visits, this was the first one where I had to wear 3D glasses to see the footage. And unlike some of the 3D movies I’ve seen recently that have been post converted and looked terrible, the 3D Fright Night footage looked great. Of course Fright Night was shot in 3D, so it’s not surprising. The thing to know is…this is one of those movies that’s actually going to be worth seeing in 3D.

http://collider.com/fright-night-edit-bay-recap/90739/

Also, one of the scenes he found most impressive is I believe in the trailer:
Quote:


While all the stuff I’d seen in the editing room looked cool, the car sequence was easily the best part of the day. As most of you know, the longer you hold a shot, the harder it is to pull off, which is why this car stuff was so awesome. Instead of constructing a scene made up of 50 or more shots, we watched the entire scene play out in one long take. Even though you might think that would be impossible to pull off, with the smart use of technology and a lot of pre-planning, it was a seamless trick. It also added a lot of tension to the scene.

And if you must have more Fright Night material, here's an interview with Colin Farrell and Craig Gillespie:

I saw Priest in 3D today and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. For a relatively low budget production there are some interesting visuals, good action and a story that held my attention. At a brisk 87 minutes it doesn't wear out its welcome and kept me interested from start to finish.

In terms of 3D, its another post-conversion effort but the results are pretty good. There's not much in the way of 3D pop out of the screen but you do get a good sense of depth for most of the running time with some really nice, sprawling outdoor vistas that really take advantage of the depth. Even several dark scenes inside the vampire hives have good depth to them.

Overall a thumbs up and I'll definitely add this to my BluRay 3D collection when/if its released.

Sony is handling th distribution of PRIEST so there is an excellent chance they will release it on 3D BD.

Shoreline Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to project, billed as "steampunk" sequel to "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

CANNES -- Hugh Bonneville is set to star in Captain Nemo, a 3D action movie that is scheduled to begin filming in August in China. Shoreline Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to the project, which will be partially financed by Chinese investors.

The movie’s being billed as a “steampunk” tale that will serve as a sequel of sorts to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and follow Captain Nemo, as he joins forces with President Ulysses Grant to battle an evil genius who is causing naval disasters.

Pearry Teo will direct on soundstages in Beijing with Los Angeles-based Illuminate Hollywood overseeing the 3D visual effects. Page Four’s Mark Rudnitksy and Amy Krell are producing. The project reunites Teo and Krell, who previously filmed Witchville in China for the SyFy Channel. Shoreline founder and CEO Morris Ruskin will executive produce along with Asia Bridge’s Steve Chicorel.

Bonneville, repped by UTA and Gordon and French, has recently appeared in ITV/Masterpiece Theater’s Downton Abbey and John Landis’ Burke and Hare.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...neville-188499


To clarify about the "3D visual effects" Illuminate Hollywood are capable of 2D>3D conversions, native 3D post-production, and generating stereoscopic CG special effects, so it's unknown at this time whether it will be S3D or 2D-3D.
