Noah I believe was a last minute conversion. And regardless how much you spend on the conversion to get native-looking results, the shooting style is the real determining factor. Domestic audiences...

Sure 3D was riding the wave of Avatar's success, but that's still accounted for in the "3D as a whole" category. It's still a problem if these revenues aren't coming in for these lower-quality...

It's nice that Hollywood still finds 3D to be the de facto format for big budget movies, and yes, 3D does help boost overall sales by around 15%, but the main reason there are so many top-10-grossing...

I don't see the logic path you took to make the claim that theaters pocket the 3D surcharge themselves. If that were true, studios would have no incentive to make 3D movies. Also, you made it sound...

All that aside, the article doesn't say what you said it says. It actually says 2015 will be the biggest year ever for 3D, which sounds like apples to apples.

Also, you don't need to win over 100%...

Even if you handed me a VC100 free of charge, I'd probably turn around and sell it on ebay after a couple days of experimenting.
