Ridley Scott Confirms ALIEN Prequel To Be Shot In Native 3D!!

Quote:


Perfect!! The man himself, Ridley Scott has confirmed to Steve @ Collider that the ALIEN prequel will definitely be shot in 3D and that he will be using the most advanced 3D cameras on the planet. Twice as effective as the ones used on AVATAR as Cameron's technology as evolved since then.

Scott's main concern is lighting as the ALIEN franchise is very dark and shadowy. As you may know, projecting 3D cuts the light effectively in half as 50% of the light goes to each eye, but not at the same time. James Cameron had some similar issues with AVATAR and spent a lot of time on evening out the lighting throughout the movie and it paid off. Look for the same effort from Ridley on ALIEN.

Unfortunately, they have decided to do a last-minute rush job conversion on The Last Airbender (or Avatar: The Last Airbender for us animation fans), still set for release July 2nd. I'm sure it will be as suck as Clash. Very sad, as I just finished watching the animation and it's fantastic (and it's only barely a kids show, very enjoyable for adults.) 3d conversion is an insult to fans, I wonder what M. Night thinks about it (I doubt he had any control over the decision).

Thanks for the info - now on the schedule.

The lure of the big premium for 3D tickets is hard for Hollywood to resist.

Paramount moving forward on third 'Ring' film in 3D

Quote:


Combining two of Hollywood's consuming passions -- sequels and 3D -- Paramount is moving ahead with a new installment of the horror thriller franchise "The Ring."

The third entry based on the Japanese horror movies is being called "Ring 3D." David Loucka, who wrote the now-shooting thriller "Dream House" for Morgan Creek, has been tapped to pen the script.

POWER OF THE DARK CRYSTAL Crystallizes In 3D

Quote:


POWER OF THE DARK CRYSTAL is set to be unleashed in stereoscopic 3D as a sequel to the Jim Henson children's classic THE DARK CRYSTAL (1982).

The Speirig Brothers (Michael and Peter) are directing. These are the guys that brought us the refreshing look at vampires in DAYBREAKERS so it is an interesting departure for these guys to dolly up for kids fare

JUDGE DREDD 3D!!!

Quote:


JUDGE DREDD is going 3D (via Deadline). This time without Sylvester Stallone I am betting :-) For those unaware, Judge Dredd is a UK comic character who is empowered to act as judge, jury and executioner.

Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT) is directing the $50 million futuristic actioner written by Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER) and financed by Reliance Big Entertainment and IM Global. Apparently it is sticking very close to the original comic intent and this should make quite a ride.

'Captain America' May Be Marvel's First 3D Film

Quote:


If Marvel is going to do 3D, they want to do 3D right. "The team has been doing a lot of research into 3-D processes, and we're looking at it on future films when we have the time," Feige said. "We will be doing it at some point." That point may beThor (which wasn't shot on 3D cameras and would have to be converted in post), but it's far more likely to be The First Avenger: Captain America. That begins shooting this summer in England, giving them ample time to use 3D cameras and all kinds of technological wizardry. It would also be a pretty ideal character to debut 3D with -- Cap is, after all, known for throwing that indestructible shield of his. He also slams people around a lot. It's the ideal prop for 3D, moreso than Mjolnir. (That's my humble opinion, of course.)

Disney plans to shoot Pirates of the Caribbean 4 in 3D

Quote:


There's some dispute over whether or not the folks in mouse ears plan to go Avatar-style for all or just some of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and convert the rest, but with a projected release date of May 20, 2011, we should know more very soon. 2D, 3D or otherwise with Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow, we're figuring it'll do ok at the box office.

Even "Looney Tunes" Gets Into 3D

Quote:


When it comes to in-your-face explosions, feelings of vertigo, and all sorts of visual effects that bring out all that 3D technology has to offer, who doesn't think of Looney Tunes?

Okay, so maybe Bugs Bunny and the Roadrunner aren't what James Cameron had in mind when he sought out to re-envision the world of 3D media, but Warner Bros has marked the first major announcement of 3D stereoscopic cartoons.

According to AHN, Warner Bros will start inserting 30-second cartoon shorts before its theatrical 3D movie presentations, starting with July's release of Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.

The first new 3D shorts is called "Coyote Falls" and features none other than Wile E. Coyote. He'll be blowing up Acme rockets and smashing into the screen with a whole new level of realism.

Coyote Falls is the first of many planned computer-animated shorts that Warner plans to pepper into most of its upcoming 3D movies.Yosemite Sam, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Marvin the Martian, and Porky Pig are all confirmed to be getting the 3D transformation.

And th-th-th-th-that's all, folks!

The Lion King to get 3D conversion & cinema re-release

Quote:


We're not sure what happened to the 3D release of 'Beauty & The Beast', it was due for release this summer but has been pushed back to a date unknown. Meanwhile producer Don Hahn has let slip that another classic Disney animation, 'The Lion King' is to receive a 3D conversion and a cinema re-release. The power producer is currently working on Roger Rabbit 2, which he reports will make fans 'Very Very Happy'.


There is no date yet pencilled in for the release, but it is expected that the 3D version of 'Beauty & The Beast' will hit Irish cinemas early next year

I made a GCal for 3d movies using this thread, I made it public to share with everyone. I come on once a week or so, so it should stay fairly current, but I would appreciate if 2 or 3 people volunteered to be added to calender admins so they can add/change as necessary.

(never shared a calender publicly before, so let me know if theres something wrong)
Calendar ID: pqvj3bt83u4sle3mbij38bqlok@group.calendar.google.com
ICal: http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/...blic/basic.ics
(I don't even know what ICal is, but maybe its useful to someone?)

Also, in setting up, I found a few extra details/descrepancies on IMDB:
Legend of the Guardians will have a 1.44 Imax aspect
Alpha and Omega releases Sept 17?
Megamind - 1.85 3d and 1.44 imax
Tron Legacy 1.44 imax
Gullivers Travels Dec 22?

None of The IMAX Experience (Hollywood movies shown at an IMAX theater) presentations use a 1.44 AR. Whatever the AR of the movie is, that is what you will see. Only native 15/70 IMAX presentations, be they 2D or 3D use 1.44.

With 3D presentations, there may be a different AR used (like 1.78) then what is used for 2D (like 2.40). Or, in the case of TRON: LEGACY, it will be both (selected scenes) where other 3D presentations will only be 2.40.

That Calendar ID link isn't working BTW.

Interesting. I don't know much about Imax. I wonder why IMDB is so consistently wrong then.

Sorry, the Calender ID is not a link, you copy and paste it on Gcal where it says "add a friends calender".
However, I realized you can get to the Calender without any need for a Gcal account at this link: http://www.google.com/calendar/embed...merica/Chicago
(and actually at the bottom of the page is a link to add it to your Gcal if you want)

(this is one of the reasons I love Google so much. You don't even have to have an account and you can still access most all of their services!)

Here's the email I received about the Avatar 3D re-release.

On August 27, return to Pandora and re-experience James Cameron's History-Making Epic film, with more than Eight Minutes of Never Before Seen Footage- exclusively in Digital 3D and IMAX® 3D. Since - and largely as of result of - AVATAR's release last December, the number of available digital 3D screens has exploded, and moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D, as well as fans that want to return to Pandora again, will now have that opportunity.

The Oscar® and Golden Globe® winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in over $2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also the top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time.

"Thor" and "Captain America" coming soon in 3D

Quote:


Our sources tell us that "Thor" and "Captain America" are to be converted into 3D.

We're excited to hear the great news for 3D fans that the summer of 2011 will be a monster summer at the movies! 2 big productions are slated for release based on classic Marvel superheroes. Thor, which will be released on May 6, 2011 and then Captain America: The First Avenger, which comes out July 22, 2011.

Although it is true that both of these have been in the works for some time, they are going to be released with the controversial post conversion 3D process, according to the LA Times Hero Complex.
