3D is in question for the following:

Rise of the Planet of the Apes - marketing has not once to my knowledge mentioned it being in 3D. Apparently it was always just a rumor.
Contagion won't be in 3D because the rigs weren't available.
The Avengers is not being "shot" in 3D but that could still mean it will be converted.

It was great having 3D because I needed at least a year and a half to finish the movie, and they told me I had the time. I said no to it on Snow White, the next film that I am doing.

Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby is set to become the first major Australian 3D feature shot with the RED EPIC camera and 3ality rigs.

Cinematographer Simon Duggan ACS said he completed tests on the EPIC with Luhrmann in New York last month and was very happy with the results.

It's not that much bigger than a standard film camera, he said, adding that the EPIC also allows shooting hand-held or with a Steadicam.

The film is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1920s novel and will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton. Duggan said the film will be shot at 5K resolution to allow blowups and visual effects.

Panavision Australia will supply the three EPIC cameras (including one backup), as well as the 3ality rigs, for the shoot.

The four-month shoot begins at Fox Studios Australia next month and wraps up in December. Alex Proyas' VFX-heavy Paradise Lost epic is also expected to take up a sound stage during that time.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was shot primarily using RED One cameras, with a few pickup shots captured on RED Epic.

Got a question: IMAX is projected at 2K, correct? So Spiderman should take full advantage of the resolution and then some?

Digital IMAX is 2K. IMAX 3D is still 15/70.

Ok. 5K digital content would still make great use of IMAX's resolution, right? Or are there any restrictions with 3D? If I understand correctly they need two projectors just to do 2D, so do they halve the resolution in 3D?

Basically I'm just wondering if RED Epic stuff will look as bad-ass in IMAX as stuff shot with IMAX cameras.

Did you see Nolan's Inception in IMAX 15/70? It had scenes that were shot in Super Panavision (65mm) which has an 8K resolution. Was it vastly noticable over the 35mm scenes?

IMAX Digital is max 2K resolution until they upgrade the Chrisite projectors to 4K (or go with Sony 4K PJs). IMAX 15/70 is approx 12K (the prints) so I don't know if you could really tell the difference bettwen 4K content and 5K content.

Thanks to JOHNnDENVER for making me aware of this site.

This is the site that I was aware of:

They are promising a "shopping cart" soon.

Guys, has anyone purchased the glasses from tru3d? If so are they any good? Also, are the lenses glass or plastic?

As I said, cough Lee change the OP cough, Contagion's not 3D, Avengers isn't being shot in 3D and might not be 3D at all, and John Carter is 2D-3D. According to RealOrFake, MIB is conversion too. I did find this.

Here's a trailer for The Darkest Hour, a movie I recall being mentioned several times on Collider, but never knew what it was or that it was even shot in 3D.

70% CG, Fincher likes motion capture, will be more like Avatar than Tintin, more "dense" as he puts it (realness and detail I guess is what he means, so yeah)

I read Collider said that the 3D in Fright Night wasn't that good, but this guy disagrees:

Quote:


Tim Burton's lovely real world scenes in Alice in Wonderland had me thinking that yeah, even a straight Jane Austen adaptation or period piece could benefit from the new and improved 3D. The fact that I thought of Alice as I watched the glorious smoky shadows, aerial photography and low-light chases of Fright Night tells me this may be the most beautiful 3D movie to come along since.

Not to review it a week early, but visually, it is gorgeous. Bravo, Javier Aguirresarobe.

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/ent...3d-movies.html

I personally thought the scene in AiW with the crowds of people gathered at the party at the mansion on the lawn was a memorable shot in 3D. It's the only thing I actually remember about the movie aside from what's in the trailers.

Yes but horror movies always do high 3D shares. Also, that's a report about 2009 vs 2010 revenue. So it's really 8.5 months past relevant.

How Ridley Scott came to direct the new 'Blade Runner'

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/movi...el-sequel.html

Quote:


It could be either a sequel, a prequel, or even an inspired-by type of picture a la "Prometheus," which is related to but not closely affiliated with Scott's 1979 science-fiction hit "Alien."

Surprised to read this in the newest Empire magazine:

The production has been complicated not just by a furore over Will Smith`s enormous motorhome, which drew complaints from residents of downtown New York, but the decision to shoot in 3D. "Honestly, at the moment it`s more of a chore for Barry and (director of photography) Bill Pope," says Parkes candidly.
"Barry`s style as a comic director tends to be very flat and wide. It`s all about great big wide shots, with something funny going on in the background while there`s a deadpan conversation in the foreground. That`s really tricky to do in 3D. On the other hand, the action sequenses and locations - we actually start the film on the moon - will really pop in 3D.

Could be old quote?
