has to have a ROI.
P.S... I think before we ask if 3D BD is a huge success, we have to first determine if 2D BD is a huge success.
James Cameron does care. He is one of a handful of directors that go outside the box to use technology to improve cinema production and presentation. Chris Nolan is another with his groundbreaking use of IMAX 15/70 for a big budget film.
But there is nothing that says that these technological advancements will immediately dribble down to home video. Only in one instance has home video been above professional cinema . . . the use of 7.1 SS and that "advantage" no longer applies.
And as it has already been stated, a handful of movies shot at 48 or 60 FPS does not mean the industry is changing over to make it a standard. They have experimented with cinema tech for over 50 years. Few of the improvements stood the test of time.
