almostinsane, you can't believe everything you read. Why isn't Clash of the Titans on this revenue graph? Or Alice in Wonderland or Ice Age 3D or G-force? I bet the chart really is more like a wave pattern. To expect every toon flick that comes out to beat the last in this economy is asking a little too much. And to expect ANY MOVIE to hold the line with AVATAR is ludicrous, and to put Despicable Me as the final proof of poor showing- C'mon. Who even wanted to see that? And it still got 45% of it's revenue from 3D screens! I bet by the time Tron Legacy comes out in December, there will be an uptrend in the graph. But again, the graph is not showing the total story of revenue because of the omissions. Hollywood only makes a small percentage of the total revenue that can be generated thru the actual screenings in the first few weeks. It's the dvd/bluray/ppv window that really brings in the dough because it's continous: the home market- and there will be demand there.
I don't mind Mr. Nolan not shooting his films in 3D. I wish he would, but it's ok. My Plasma will do the 3D conversion for him, again, when it's at home in Blu-ray where it's nice and bright. I'll still go see Inception at the theaters, but only in D-box. In a 3D AV forum, how else do you expect me to react?
Once you've gone Buttkicker, you can't go back.
