The Official AVS 3D Film (First Run In Theaters) Topic! - Page 17

That sounds better and differentiates it from the inferior depth-map/paint-in-the-gaps postconversion tools used for Alice/Clash/Airbender/Narnia/Potter/Thor/etc.

Curious thing I've noticed...

I think Lion King 3D hit the theaters before the Bluray was released.
Beauty & the Beast 3D hit the store shelves about the same time as Lion King 3D.
Saw a commercial for "Limited Time" showings of Beauty 3D coming to a theater near me...

So Beauty was available on Bluray before shown in theaters??? Probably insignificant in terms of total box office revenue, but it probably isn't making the theater owners happy.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 3D Blu-ray was released on Oct. 4, 2011.

It will be released on a limited showing in theaters this Friday

Beauty 3D is a must buy for 3D fans. Seriously.

Optimistic about this one for some reason.

Beauty and the Beast did $18.5M for the weekend, and had a 97% 3D revenue share.

Here's an-set video of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. They all seem to have a great sense of humor and seem to enjoy their time on the set. Oh, and if you guys like Paradise Lost, then you'll be interested to know the two movies share Benjamin Walker, for whatever that's worth. He makes a great Lincoln, that's all I know.

Looks like the Resident Evil: Retribution 3D trailer will debut in front of Underworld: Awakening. Can't wait to see both of these next week.

I just checked, they don't show at either Amazon or Toys R Us so yes, it looks like (for now) they will only be available opening weekend at those 10 special AMC theaters.

This one will probably look good in 3D, but at the expense of sitting through a bad movie.

This month's Wired magazine has an article about Ghost Rider, "Faking it, In 3D". They are shooting in 2D but they are capturing each shot with a 360 degree camera to help with the 3D post conversion. Director Brian Taylor says "There's a percentage of film nuts who care if you shoot in 3-D, but most fans don't give a rat's ass whether it was shot on a Red or an iPhone-- they just want it to be awesome." Here's an interview about 3D with the directors from last year:

To a certain degree, his statement is correct. However, 2D-3D conversions are usually not "awesome," and the 3D in his current trailer is much too shallow to win anyone's approval.

Hmmm, that AMC Southlake 24 was my theater, when I still lived in Henry County. I remember when they cleared that land & built that whole complex. I'm tempted to drive down there just to pay the money & get the glasses (but not watch this horrid movie )

In other news, I thought the 3D trailer for The Lorax was very impressive. Seemed like there'd be great depth and plenty of pop-out.

Link to 8 Russian Trailers, including Ghost Rider and The Lorax:

I spent the bucks and went to see Underworld in IMAX 3D this weekend. Liked the movie a lot and I always like IMAX, but I was somewhat underwhelmed by the 3D. I just dont get the wow from live action 3D movies that I do from CGI/Animation. Don't get me wrong, my family and I all left saying it was a good movie (we have all of the UW movies on BD) but no one said the 3D was of critical importance or lent any amount of pleasure above what we would have thought we would get from the 2D version.

On the way home we discussed:


Movie- worth it ($10)
IMAX- worth it ($4 upcharge)
3D- probably not worth it. ($4 upcharge)

I'll hold final judgement until I can see it in 2D which will likely be at a discounted rate in a couple of weeks, but as of now, I am not thinking the 3D really made much of a difference.

Most live action 3D is shot in 2D and carelessly converted. The native 3D that is out there, is mostly just zombie/horror films that are made on a tighter budget with a crew that is less tech/art-savvy. Good 3D needs a well respected director and cinematographer attached, like Hugo with Scorsese and Robert Richardson.

I'm looking forward to Prometheus, Amazing Spiderman, The Hobbit, Great Gatsby and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea to name a few. I think I have realistically high expectations given the names attached to these projects.

Wow! $18 per ticket is brutal. I'm about to go see this during matinee hours in IMAX 3D ($5 upcharge) and it only costs $10.

Yep, $72 is a huge price for a family of four. However, here in the DC area, matinees at the regular theater are $9. I caught a break by using two $20 gift cards I got for Christmas.

And they wonder why I see so many people eating out of their purse...

Optional Branded 3D Glasses Set For THE AVENGERS Launch!

Well, if I can't have podracer glasses, the Avengers ones look like an acceptable substitute.

Do we know if these will be getting a wide release, or just at "special" theaters?

I kind of like the color of the Captain America ones best, but the others seem much more stylized to fit their superheros better.

The Iron Man lenses look a little smaller. That might affect picture quality.

Yes, but if you choose those, you get to say, "I AM IRONNN MANN!"

Marvel is hopping onboard the personalized specs train. The studio will be offering special edition 3D glasses at participating theaters for the upcoming release of The Avengers. You can choose to rock Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, or Captain America specialized glasses while oogling the all-star superhero movie. The glasses will cost an extra $5 in ticket price, but you’ll be able to sport your super cool specs at many 3D movies to come. Presumably they’re a little more durable than the typical Real D glasses, making them fashionable and necessary.

Thanks! I bet they'll be more readily available since Marvel is charging for them. I'm definitely in for a pair, but I'm sensing a whole new wave of 3D gimmick jokes if this becomes a trend.
