Like it or not, 3D is here to stay and is no longer just the plaything of James Cameron or studios looking to beef up their bottom line on tentpole fare. Bonafide auteurs are now taking a hard look at the format too. Martin Scorsese is diving into stereoscopic shooting for his upcoming Hugo Cabret; Francis Ford Coppolas Twixt Now And Sunrise will have a 3D sequence; Takashi Miike goes to Cannes this year with his 3D Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai; Steven Soderbergh would have shot Contagion in 3D if the cameras were ready in time; Baz Luhrmann is strongly considering the format for The Great Gatsby and now, one of cinemas greatest legends will be embarking on his first three dimensional movie.

That's so stupid. Who was going to supply him the cameras?

Jeffrey Katzenberg: Why Hollywood Is to Blame for Slide in 3D Grosses (Q&A)

Quote:
The DreamWorks Animation chief tells THR, "It's really heartbreaking to see what has been the single greatest opportunity that has happened to the film business in over a decade being harmed."

A quote from RealD:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...d-posts-196644

Quote:
"While questions about 3D's staying power have been raised in the past, these concerns have proven short sighted," the company said .

RealD said Despicable Me is often used as evidence of shrinking interest in 3D because it generated only 45% of its domestic opening weekend box office from 3D.

But, says RealD, "Despicable Me ultimately delivered exceptional results at the 3D box office, ranking as RealD's third highest grossing film in fiscal 2011."

I recall there being tons of reports about how Jon Favreau dissed 3D, Cowboys and Aliens would be in "glorious 2D," that 3D was a gimmick, etc.

http://cinefile.com/news/article/cow...n-glorious-2d/

So it was a relief to stumble across the 2010 Comic Con panel video, and find out that it wasn't an accurate summary of his message about 3D.

40 seconds in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zSCOfWJV1M#t=40s

In actuality, he test shot in 3D, liked what he saw, but since he preferred film for a western, and native 3D wasn't a viable option, he had to consider conversions-- which he outright dissed, thank God. He only dissed conversions. And people weren't praising his decision to go 2D over 3D-- they were just happy that he wasn't converting. Favreau loves 3D, but he just prefers film over digital. A preference which may in fact change once he handles a Red Epic or something.

Whoohoo, positive news!

"According to a recent Fandango survey, 76% of 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' fans are more inclined to see the movie in 3D because it was actually filmed in 3D (and not a 2D conversion)."

Here's a new trailer for Immortals:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=79034

It definitely looks a little undercooked, aesthetically, imo. It looks pretty epic, but it's just missing that feeling that they're at the pinnacle of what they can do.

New figures show that 61% of Transformers presales on Fandango.com have been for the 3D version. The revenue marketshare must be through the roof. Oh yeah, 3D's dying... lmao.

* Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 35mm ā€“ 13% of daily tickets sold
* Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 3D ā€“ 12% of daily tickets sold
* Transformers: Dark of the Moon in IMAX 3D ā€“ 8% of daily tickets sold


There's also a poll on the article: Will You be Seeing 'Transformers 3' in 3D?
Yes - 85%
No - 15%
Depends - <1%

It's surprising enough that the poll shows that 85% of the population are seeing the movie, period. The article must be attracting Transformers fans especially. Still, 85% seeing it in 3D versus 2D? That's great, but then again, these are informed online movie fans. It's still surprising, and still positive though.

Transformers will reverse 3D's fate, or at least open the door of opportunity. Then it's up to Harry Potter, which surprisingly is one conversion I do think will look good because of the WAY each shot in the trailers looks to have tons of layering and such a diverse array of eye candy.

Captain America and Conan the Barbarian will probably look like CRAP.

Some movies I just now became interested in, and why you should too:

17 Days of Winter - Written by Frank Piersen (Dog Day Afternoon, Cool Hand Luke). A story of personal triumph, courage and universal humanity set against the backdrop of the brutal, 17 day battle where 12,000 U.S. Marines and soldiers, known today as "The Chosin Few," faced overwhelming odds and deadly sub-zero temperatures, while outnumbered by 120,000 Chinese troops behind enemy lines in a battle for the soul of a nation.

Life of Pi - Starring Tobey Maguire, it's directed by Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hulk). Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, is a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel, the precocious son of a zookeeper. Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter. After a shipwreck, Pi is found adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, all fighting for survival.

Rise of the Guardians - Dreamworks Animation, voices of Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost and the Sandman band together to form a united front against the Bogeyman. Obviously.

Hotel Transylvania - Sony Pictures Animation. Another one with a wacky synopsis involving a bunch of iconic characters: Frankenstein, the Mummy, Dracula, and the Werewolf are among a group of monsters hiding out in a hotel on the outskirts of Transylvania now that modern technology has made them seemingly irrelevant. Though I get the feeling from the crew that this will be "Hoodwinked Too."

The Brothers Grimm: Snow White - Directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals, The Fall) written by Jacob Grimm (Tangled), with the beautiful Julia Roberts and Lily Collins as the Evil Queen and Snow White.

John Carter - Disney, Pixar, Bruckheimer Films. Directed by Andrew Stanton (writer/director of movies such as Toy Story 2 & 3, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Bug's Life, Monsters Inc and Monsters University). Plot sounds ideal for 3D: Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Remind you of any other movie? Maybe a 3D one released in, say, December 2010?

The Lorax - Dr Seuss book. Crew also wrote Despicable Me 1 & 2, and Horton Hears a Who. Ed Helms, Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny Devito and Betty White voice.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance - Story by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises, Blade trilogy, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank 1 and 2, Gamer)

Slightly OT q. I was reading about the real3d system used in theaters. It uses a circular polarizer in front of the digital pj if I understand correctly. Is that type of set up to expensive to be marketed to home users. My ultraclear glasses (3dxl, hd66 optoma pj) are fine by me but have limited WAF (wife and kid acceptance factor) relative to the lighter weight and cheaper glasses in theater. Just curious, appreciate any info. Thanks.

RealD requires a silver screen to maintain polarization. A silver screen doesn't work well for 2D due to hot spotting.
