Multiple outlets are reporting that Jackass 3D was the No. 1 movie at the box office this weekend, taking in an estimated $50 million. Is it yet another sign of 3D's burgeoning acceptance or just another example of the decline of western civilization?

The Indiana Jones Saga Returning to Theaters in 3D


After news broke last month that George Lucas and Lucasfilm would be up-converting the Star Wars Saga for a 3D re-release, it was only a matter of time before the same thing was done to the beloved Indiana Jones Saga. I can practically feel Indy’s whip cracking me in the face through the theater screen already!

According to Blue Sky Disney, Lucasfilm will be announcing their intentions to release the old-fashioned adventure series next month, starting with the first and best Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Christopher Nolan reveals title of third Batman film and that ‘it won’t be the Riddler’


Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film will be called “The Dark Knight Rises” and though the Gotham City auteur isn’t ready to reveal the villain of his 2012 film, he did eliminate one of the big contenders: “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said in an exclusive interview with Hero Complex.

Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.

I'm not seeing it if it's not in 3D. He could just use IMAX 3D cameras if he wanted...

TDK sucked.

Nope - no to 3D and yes to IMAX:


Nolan also added that Warner Bros. agrees with him to not shoot the film in 3D and instead will use high-definition and IMAX cameras.

Cameron To Shoot AVATAR 2 And 3 At 48 Plus Frames Per Second? Or Higher??

Interesting information coming out of the Churchill Club meeting last night where James Cameron and Google's CEO Eric Schmidt talked about 3D movies and his upcoming sequels AVATAR 2 & 3.

Interesting in that Cameron may be finally delivering on a technology that he has long held dear to his heart - higher frame rates for movies! Yes, he is now talking about the real possibility of shooting the AVATAR sequels at 48 frames per second or higher (60fps+?) which is at least double the standard of 24fps for today's movies.

Technically Cameron says that the higher frame rate "helps reduce or eliminate motion artifacts. Another area of focus will be perfecting virtual water effects light streaming into the depths of the ocean, and the shimmering, wavy surface being just a few examples."

Just a heads up, BestBuy.com is listing the Space Station 3D pre-order at $34.99; as such I'd expect Amazon to at least match that price at some point.

Yes you read that right! The very successful 2000 Japanese movie BATTLE ROYALE has been converted to 3D for its tenth anniversary and Anchor Bay just picked up the US rights for its distribution! Note that it was never screened in the US as sensitivity was high following Columbine.

The 3D version will have an R-15 rating in Japan - just as director Kinji Fukasaku's original.

Catherine Owens To Direct Oscar Wilde's THE SELFISH GIANT In 3D

Director Carl Rinsch's 47 RONIN Starring Keanu Reeves to be Produced and Released in 3D

Based upon a true story, 47 Ronin is the tale of 18th century samurai who head out to avenge the death of their master. It's the most famous tale of the samurai code of honor, bushido. For a director who has yet to make his feature film debut, Rinsch has been attached to some decidedly high-profile projects, and Reeves' work on The Matrix trilogy has him well-versed in martial arts (I know kung-fu). Needless to say, this flick sounds fairly bad-ass on paper. We'll find out if Rinsch lives up to his reputation come November 2012.

The film is described as 'a hybrid combining narrative storytelling with Cirque performances that are being captured in 3D from different themed Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas.' Cameron will act as a producer for the film, and he will be joined by Reel FX Entertainment's Cary Granat and Ed Jones, Cirque du Soleil, and Aron Warner. Cameron and Adamson have worked together capturing 3D Cirque du Soleil footage in the past.

Buy the right Tron Legacy Ticket: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/To-3D...ket-22237.html

Saw it last night in IMAX 3D. It did not best Avatar, imo, but it was good. I will say there were several instances though where I thought the 3D didn't look strong enough, or inconsistently layered. Maybe it was one of the challenges of shooting a movie with so much greenscreen, I don't know.

I also want to talk about the trailers that preceded it.

Green Hornet - This is the benchmark for 3D conversions. I would have believed if they said it had been native. From what I've read the 3D was an afterthought, actually. I would have thought it was at least planned as a 3D film from the very beginning. It bested planned 2D>3D conversion Alice in Wonderland, in my opinion. My only fear is finding out they rushed the other 98% of the movie. But the panel at comic con explained that the long wait for the movie was due to taking the time to do the conversion right. My friend and I are suddenly really looking forward to it.

Pirates 4 looked really good. I've been so eager to see how traditionally shot 2D franchises like Pirates, Spiderman, Transformers, etc would transition into 3D without compromising their cinematography style, and Pirates 4 did not let me down one bit. My only complaint is that the cuts were getting a little too bang-bang to appreciate the 3D. There were several in-your-face moments involving swords, but the gimmickry fit more with Pirate's trademark comedic relief than as a crutch for the rest of the movie's 3D.

Cars 2 and Mars Needs Moms - Mars looks like a wild movie, Cars 2 looks like, well, a sequel to Cars.

IMAX Born to Be Wild - You are there. Stunning. I only hate that these IMAX films don't show anywhere near me.

Thor - It didn't stand out from the other trailers in a good way. It ended with the most chatter amongst the sold-out teen/geek-centric audience, but I have no idea why. Maybe they were all talking about how mediocre it looked. That or they were all complimenting the genericness of it.

To summarize, live action 2D blockbuster franchises transition great in native 3D, and conversions are getting better or worse, depending on how much time you invest. Overall, a very positive sign of what lies ahead for 3D if the effort is put into it.

I found Tron to be very long and boring.
It was a totall waste of time and money. Next time I'll listen to the critics.

Not even 3D helps that movie out.
post #173 of 644
Correction to my post: Green Hornet was shot with 3D in mind. Michel Gondry shot it with 3D in mind, but didn't know if it would even be approved for a conversion. He was excited to get the approval while shooting was still going on, saying "I am going to do things in 3D that have never been done before. I have been thinking about this for years."

$43 mil? Wow! That is weak.
And now with word of mouth on top of that, this movie will be as good as dead in the water.

$43M is only weak if you're the one who paid to have it made. 15th best opening for a movie this year.

Also, critic reviews =/= word of mouth. The latter has been ok, actually. I see you're not a fan of it, but you =/= everyone.

I'm curious your thoughts on this thing called 3D.

Fincher: I think it's coolwhen it's done right.

Exactly. Do you envision yourself, in any of your future projects right now, doing 3D?

Fincher: Yeah. 20,000 Leagues will be 3D.
post #178 of 644
That's a pretty amazing list! I want to see the bolded:

January 14 - THE GREEN HORNET - 2D-3D (conversion quality looks great based on trailer, and I think people are underestimating the comedic potential)
February 4 - James Cameron's SANCTUM - S3D (low budget movie, but should look good)
February 11 - DRIVE ANGRY - S3D (should do fine for a low-budget movie)
February 11 - GNOMEO & JULIET - S3DR (looks half-decent, but not great)
February 14 - NEVER SAY NEVER - S3D (3D and Justin Bieber, but still a "special interests" genre)
March 11 - MARS NEEDS MOMS! - S3DR (CG and cinematography look top notch and could be a perfect fit for 3D)
April 8 - RIO - S3DR (another good-looking CG cartoon)
April 8 - BORN TO BE WILD - IMAX 3D (looks great, but will do standard 3D imax numbers)

April (?) - RESCUE 3D - IMAX 3D (never heard of it and can't find anything about it)
May 6 - THOR - 2D-3D (saw the trailer in 3D--- it looked like crap. First major 3D flop of 2011?)
May 13 - PRIEST - 2D-3D - 1.85 (looks kind of generic, along the lines of Resident Evil Afterlife)
May 20 - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES - S3D (obvious blockbuster is obvious)
June 3 - KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM - S3DR (another obvious one)
June 17 - THE GREEN LANTERN - 2D-3D (seen too little, don't know yet)
June 24 - CARS 2 - S3DR (blockbuster)
June 24 -RISE OF THE APES - S3D (director's history doesn't instill confidence)
July 1 - TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON - S3D (blockbuster)
July 15 - HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 - 2D-3D (blockbuster)
July 22 - CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER - 2D-3D (I'm just leery about all these superhero movies causing comic book fatigue. I don't think it looks bad at all though)

August 3 - SMURFS 3D - 2D-3D (Star-studded box office flop? And another iffy director)
August 5 - THE DARKEST HOUR 3D - S3D (don't know what this is)
August 19 - SPY KIDS 4: ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD - S3D (crappy movie that will unfortunately recoup its low budget and justify another sequel)
August 19 - CONAN (seems iffy, leaning towards failure)
August 19 - FRIGHT NIGHT 3D - S3D (another iffy, but sliiightly optimistic because it's a comedy)
August 26 - FINAL DESTINATION 5 - S3D (franchise seems to be doing ok, nothing really special though)
September 16 - DOLPHIN TALE 3D - S3D (B-movie for kids, surely)
September 23 - JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 2 - S3D (will probably do similar numbers as Journey 1)
October 14 - THE THREE MUSKETEERS 3D - S3D (I like most of Paul Thomas Anderson's films, I have no reason to doubt the quality of this one)
October 21 - CONTAGION - S3D (huge names attached to this, can't find anything to doubt its quality thusfar)

November 4 - PUSS IN BOOTS - S3DR (Shrek spinoff, could be good)
November 11 - ARTHUR CHRISTMAS - S3DR (teaser looks pretty nice)
November 18 - HAPPY FEET 2 IN 3D - S3DR (blockbuster)
December 9 - HUGO CABRET - S3D (it's hard to gauge how good a movie could be without having seen anything but a couple production photos, but I have a feeling Scorsese won't go wrong)
December 16 - ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIP-WRECKED (crappy movie that will unfortunately recoup its low budget and justify another sequel)
December 23 - THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: SECRET OF THE UNICORN - S3D (just so much talent behind this movie, it's gonna be epic)

Hopefully Netflix starts offering 3DBD rentals this year, because aside from the 12 I bolded I don't think I'd pay $10+ to see anything else.

And how did I miss the news that a movie like Contagion was going to be 3D?
