It's always nice to get early impressions of the 3D quality in upcoming movies.
If you have an experience to share, please include what film and theater chain you were at.
If you find a 3D trailer online on biohemmet.se or Youtube, please let us know. Let's keep it limited though to future theatrical releases.
These trailers played in front of it:
Amazing Spiderman was all about the webslinging and action. That stuff looked great. The dialog scenes on the other hand were nothing special.
Prometheus, which seems to be the most anticipated 3D movie of 2012, looked tastefully done.
Great Gatsby trailer was incredible. Fantastic really. Max 3D in almost every shot. I read that Lurhmann was having trouble and shot 2D at times, but I didn't see any evidence of that, other than one shot with Dicaprio indoors while it was raining outside, I saw a little ring of distortion around him. But the other shots? Incredible. Really benefits from 3D. Really stunning looking stereography. In terms of 3D, it's now my most anticipated movie of 2012, and only Life of Pi has a chance to dethrone it!

Ahead of the film's November release, Fox will unveil new segments with screenings of "Prometheus," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift."
Ang Lee's upcoming 3D film, Life of Pi, is getting the special trailer treatment, according to The New York Times.
Twentieth Century Fox has decided to roll out a series of trailers featuring uncut scenes from the movie so that the 3D special effects have a better chance to shine in theaters. Life of Pi is adapted from Yann Martel's adventure novel of the same name about a boy stranded on a boat with a Bengal tiger.
The Times reports that Fox will debut the first preview beginning Friday before 3D screenings of the sci-fi film Prometheus; the studio will also partner other clips with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (release date: June 22) and Ice Age: Continental Drift (July 13).
This film is special and different, and so we didn't want to give people the same-old, same-old, said Tom Rothman, co-chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment.
The studio will also release a conventional trailer ahead of Life of Pi's Nov. 21 release date. As far as the uncut 3D versions, Fox intends to reveal scenes in which a cargo ship filed with zoo animals sinks in the ocean.
The strategy echoes what Fox did with Avatar in 2009 by previewing a 15-minute teaser in theaters to drum up interest five months before the release of the 3D-enhanced James Cameron blockbuster.
Earlier this year, Fox had a Pi presentation at CinemaCon where the movie was very well received and left with awards-contender buzz. The studio recently announced that it had moved up the picture's opening up from Dec. 21 in order to avoid the Christmas rush of highly-anticipated releases such as Warner's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson's adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien book, and Universal' musical Les Miserables.
Although I enjoy flying 3D cutlery and think very highly of Paul Anderson's 3D (especially his choice in set pieces and scene composition), I would agree with your statement to a certain extent. What do you think it is about his shooting style that causes characters to look slightly too flat? Bad lens choice? Not enough camera separation?
I'll do an example later tonight to show the compression effects of long lenses.
