The Official AVS 3D Blu-ray Release Schedule - Page 24

post #691 of 1052
If I'm not mistaken, IMAX 3D arrives in theatres as video files on a hard drive. Hence, the conversion to video has already occurred and it's only a matter of format conversion--simple enough.
Cost doesn't enter into the price, just what they think we'll pay.

That is only for the Digital IMAX theaters. Any of the existing IMAX 3D docs shot on 15/70mm will be just that. They haven't shot an IMAX doc yet using digital cameras, though a portion of the new doc BORN TO BE WILD is.

But, because there is digital.IMAX, all productions have already been converted to digital just to support theatres. So cost of IMAX Blueray 3D doesn't go up because of digital conversion costs.
Again: the price is what the distributor thinks we willing to pay--production cost of the original IMAX has little to do with it.

good link to monitor, if it's not already been posted (saw this at another site).

Nice to see a few biggies originally shot in 3D, hopefully as we go thru this year and next, more and more will be shot on 3D and not converted.

I don't agree, based on what I understand (an ex-colleague works for IMAX in Mississauga, Ontario): IMAX is their own studio (that originally focused on documentaries shown in their own theaters), who also offer the technology to other major studios as well as getting agreements to show IMAX films in non-IMAX studios and showing non-IMAX-produced films in IMAX theaters.

There are three major elements to the IMAX brand: the cameras/technology, the studio that creates IMAX films, and the theaters that show IMAX-created, IMAX-technology-based, and other films.

There is also a distribution arm for IMAX - I guess that would be associated with the studio.

So a film with "IMAX" associated with it may have been produced by IMAX themselves or may be produced using IMAX technology.

For example, IMDB lists "IMAX" as the main producer of IMAX: Into the Deep. Or from the website (http://www.imax.com/corporate/technology/production/): "IMAX's award-winning team has extensive in-house experience producing critically acclaimed and broadly appreciated movies".

Admittedly, the majority of IMAX-branded content is probably not produced by IMAX, and there are a lot of non-IMAX movies shown in IMAX theaters, but there are still true IMAX-produced movies being made, I would think.

AFAIK,

IMAX is a motion picture film format and a set of proprietary cinema projection standards created by the Canadian IMAX Corporation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMAX

Like Todd-AO or VistaVision.

And following the link for IMAX Corp (bold my emphasis):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMAX_Corporation

"IMAX Corporation (NASDAQ: IMAX; TSX: IMX) is a Canadian theatre company which designs and manufactures IMAX cameras and projection systems as well as film development, production, post production and distribution to IMAX affiliated theatres worldwide."

(Not that Wikipedia is a rigorous citation, but it matches what IMAX states on their own website.)

What I'm trying to say is that it can be both a format and a studio.

Warner Home Video has also added IMAX Hubble for DVD release on 3/29 (SRP $27.95). No word yet on a Blu-ray release, but this was a 3D release in theatres so we'd be surprised if official word of Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D versions didn't follow soon.

UPDATE:

Retail sources have informed us that Warner Home Video will release IMAX Hubble on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D combo pack on 3/29, the same day as the DVD version. We're awaiting official confirmation from the studio.

Amazon has GULLIVER'S TRAVELS 3D available for pre-order today. Blu-ray.com lists the release date as 4/19. I guess this is Fox's first retail release.

Inception Makers Not Involved in 3D

Quote:


Last week, reports indicated that Christopher Nolan was working on a stereoscopic conversion of Inception to release it on 3D Blu-ray (see Blu-ray.com, February 25). However, Wally Pfister ASC, the film's Oscar-winning director of photography, now has clarified that, while a 3D release is "definitely" going to happen, he's not taking part in that endeavor, and neither is Nolan. "In terms of what's happening with Inception, you know, Chris and I are like-minded in that way," he said.

If you're actually planning on buying Tangled and Yogi Bear, you can't be too strapped for cash...
