The co-chairman of the Cameron | Pace Group says the world's first "CPG Certified" 3D movie has already captured Hollywood studios' attention, surpassing even the work CPG did for James Cameron's "Avatar."

So I'm wondering how it was/is with ticket sales, both the total and the percentage from 3D. I'm hoping the numbers were huge... (I loved it) and I'm thinking we may have 2 or 3 "3D reference Blurays" in our libraries Christmas 2012 (Avatar, Hugo, and Titanic!?!)

Hugo (2011) - Box Office Mojo
75 Percent Of HUGO's Audience Is Choosing 3D

The film even got positive comments about 3d out of 3d curmudgeon Roger Ebert:

Quote:


"Hugo" is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life. We feel a great artist has been given command of the tools and resources he needs to make a movie about movies...

Not long ago, I saw a 3-D children's film about penguins. I thought it was a simpleminded use of the medium. Scorsese uses 3-D here as it should be used, not as a gimmick but as an enhancement of the total effect. Notice in particular his re-creation of the famous little film "Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat" (1897), by the Lumiere brothers. You've probably heard its legend: As a train rushes toward the camera, the audience panics and struggles to get out of its way. That is a shot which demonstrates the proper use of 3-D, which the Lumieres might have used had it been available.
