Depending on your view, this may be classed as Erotica or Porn. Either way this may be the first 3D BD in this category. It has had its share of delays but now is expected to ship this week for delivery on Wednesday. It is advertised as shot in 3D. Which to me, means it is not a conversion.

pers of the "official 3D list" should add it in case anyone is interested.
This is not the first porn 3D BR. There are dozens of them out there including 5 by Hustler including "This Ain't Avatar".
I did not know that so I did a little search and saw the ones by Hustler. However the reviews of theirs weren't too complimentary on 3D quality nor on the quality of the women.
I got the one from Amazon in today and it is definitely a very high quality shoot ( image quality), albeit a low budget do nothing story. The 3D was excellent except for some text put on the screen to relate the story idea of two very gorgeous lesbians in email communications who fantasize being with each other as they masturbate. This text was mostly occluded which was a screwup by the editor. There are the traditional nude shots poses, not revealing too much, and no sex toys. There is no dialog, just music. The 3D gimmicks are blowing soap bubbles during a bubble bath and getting into the camera.
The disk has some previews of Kamasutra in 3D and 3 other porn videos The previews of those appear to be of similar quality but have dialog.
Interesting thing about Hustler videos-- In the mid 90's I worked for a video producer from Hustler. I did about a dozen hard R shoots of semi trashy redneck girls for a video with a biker theme and one of a bondage torture dungeon theme. After that project he wanted me to re-edit some French videos he bought rights to for US publication. I had to clean them up for the US market. After two of these I quit because the stuff the French did in porn was too disgusting for me.
WB will release to both 3D BD and 3D Cinema, a special 3D conversion of The Wizard Of Oz in 2013:
Warner also spent time and money restoring classic films for the 90th, which the studio will be celebrating throughout 2013. One such classic The Wizard of Oz, will get special 3D treatment next year for its disc release, which includes a theatrical release to kick it off.
Restoring films is great, I'm all for it. Converting film to 3D is another story. A story about time and effort to do it correctly ("Titanic" by JC for example). Here is hoping the WB Studio's effort, time & money spent are of the same care and caliber! Doing it right could be the reason more will want this feature with their next purchase of AV gear. Doing it wrong, and with a classic like this, could sour 3D for those on the fence.
Not much in the way of details; the disc is listed as being 78 minutes long and as each skit ran about 15-20 minutes we can expect four or five skits. I know that the stooges released 2 or 3 native shorts. I also rented one from the PlayStation store some time ago and was impressed with the depth and pop so this may be a fun little addition (especially at Amazon's $14.99 price).
