It's kind of funny that they're illustrating those glasses as having such a dark sunglass tint to them- normally they want to hide the fact that the lenses darken the picture.

Another downside to the iron man glasses is that they don't glow LED white.

Yes! And they should make a temporary loud humming noise when the LED lights are activated.

(That might not be conducive to quiet movie watching in the theater though).

They're not quite as snazzy-looking as the others, but all RealD 3D theaters should have free Darth Maul glasses with Star Wars: Ep. I - PotM on opening day while supplies last.

I think it's still kind of a cool freebie. Agreed on the design though. These are more "Happy Meal" than "Dark Sith Lord."

Would you like fries with your 3D?

Let's fatten the list. Several films on Dreamworks Animation's imdb page that are in pre-production and due for 2013 or 2014...

http://www.imdb.com/company/co0129164/

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014)
Me and My Shadow (2013)
Turbo (2013)

Also, Ridley Scott is in talks to direct The Counselor, from the writer of No Country for Old Men. He has previously sworn to do all future projects in 3D, so I would be on the lookout at least.

discuss a movie called Pina directed by Wim Wenders.
This is a 3D documentary on the choreography of Pina Bausch.

I don't know anything about it but thought it might be good
to mention it here.

Paul Bettany is in advanced negotiations to star in the new film from Alexei Popogrebsky, "Lost Rooms."

Popogrebsky, who won Berlin's 2010 Silver Bear with How I Ended This Summer, will shoot the new film in 3D, and in the English language.

The 6m Lost Rooms will also attach a number of prominent European and American names in the cast and crew.

The plot concerns a girl who has a unique ability to see hidden depth where everyone else sees flatness.

Not that it'll ever be distributed in the US...

Still, that's an interesting concept, a girl who sees hidden depth...

Very cool concept. It sounds like they're getting some good actors and decent funding. Seems like it would take some talented minds to incorporate that idea with a good story. The article also says it's loosely inspired by a western. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

Weekend box office:

3D Revenue Share for 2012 YTD:



I added a double asterisk above for IMAX revenues. It's not clear to me if the 3D % includes IMAX 3D. Some articles lead me to assume so while others seem up in the air. For the sake of not inflating numbers, I don't add 3D + IMAX, but if anyone can chime in I'd appreciate it. Here are a few samples of how Box Office Mojo has brought up IMAX in their weekend box office sales report articles:

Saw it today. It's Academy-award nominated for best documentary feature.
It's presented as a documentary, but most of it is dance sequences, both on stage and in outdoor settings. One of the dances is Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, which you might recognize from the dinosaur sequence in Fantasia. If you don't like modern dance, you might not be interested, but I think it's a really unique film and a great use of 3D with all the dancers, chairs, water, etc. all in clear depth. There's some scenes of the stage from the audience viewpoint and it's almost like there is a stage in the movie theatre instead of a screen. It's a foreign film, but what words there are, are as much in English as any other language, as it interviews dancers from many nationalities.

I think you interpreted it correctly. Based on the second parenthesis in the Underworld quote, it sounds like IMAX 3D is included in Box Office Mojo's overall 3D%.

Mirror Mirror and Cabin in the Woods weren't in 3D.

But you can add:

July 5 - KATY PERRY: PART OF ME - S3D - 1.78

2013 - METALLICA 3D - (assumed native S3D as all other concert films) <- Will have a $20M budget

FEBRUARY 28 2014 - LEGO - S3DR

http://collider.com/lego-movie-release-date/161343/

Quote:


BURBANK, CA, April 23, 2012 — The first-ever full length, theatrical LEGO® movie will open nationwide on February 28, 2014, it was announced today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Currently in production, the 3D computer animated adventure will be directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller from their original screenplay, story by Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman and Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, based on LEGO Construction Toys. It will incorporate some of the LEGO world’s most popular figures while introducing several new characters, inviting fans who have enjoyed the brand’s innovative toys and hugely popular video games for generations to experience their visually unique LEGO world as never seen before.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller previously teamed on the hit “21 Jump Street” and the 2009 animated comedy adventure “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.

The film will be produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”) and Roy Lee (“The Departed,” “How to Train Your Dragon”).

20% live action
"All-Lego environment" uses Lego for explosions, water, clouds, etc.
“Super charged stop-motion, Michael Bay kidnapped Henry Selick to make a movie”
Lord and Miller are producing Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, also a February 2014 release (might want to move that from December 2013 and update the name)

Stretch Armstrong is dated for 4/11/2014.

And I think we need a 2014 section now or at least pretty soon.
