Well what do they expect? If I wanted to see a piece of crap like Cats & Dogs 2 in 3D this evening, it'd cost me £10 (~$16).

So why would I bother when I can either see it for half that price without the "3D", or go see something else.

Hong Kong filmmakers shoot 'first' 3D porn film
Sun Aug 8, 1:11 am ET

HONG KONG (AFP) – A group of Hong Kong filmmakers have started shooting what they claim will be the world's first 3D pornographic film, a report said Sunday.

The 3.2 million-US-dollar '3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy', set for release in May, has already generated interest in a host of Asian film markets, as well as Europe and the US, the Sunday Morning Post reported.

Loosely based on a piece of classical Chinese erotic literature, The Carnal Prayer Mat, the movie will star Japanese adult actresses Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara, the Post said.

The film chronicles the story of a young man who, after being introduced to the erotic world of a duke, realises his ex-wife is the love of his life and features "orgies, swinging and some very graphic sex scenes", the paper said.

Producer Stephen Shiu acknowledged that censors would likely block the movie's screening in mainland China, a key market for Hong Kong filmmakers.

"(But) we are almost closing deals with some markets including Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia and some pay TV channels in Hong Kong," Shiu told the paper.

Italian director Tinto Brass has announced he would produce a 3D remake of his 1979 erotic film Caligula, while Hustler plans to release a pornographic spoof of 3D science fiction film Avatar, the top-grossing movie of all time which has earned some 2.7 billion US dollars worldwide since its release.


If the skin trade wants to go for the Avatar dollars they should convert the 70s musical porn version of Alice In Wonderland. I would gladly see that in IMAX.

THR EXCLUSIVE: 'Titanic' 3D release ready - Film likely released weeks after 3D 'Star Wars' for April 2012
Carl DiOrio wrote:Early 2012 suddenly is shaping up as a major launchpad for classic blockbusters bowing in 3D, with Paramount, Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment mulling the 3D rerelease of James Cameron's "Titanic" in April of that year.

That could put "Titanic" in theaters mere weeks after the 3D reissue of George Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace" from Fox and Lucasfilm. Plans were announced this week to send out the first in a planned series of "Star Wars" rereleases sometime between February and April of 2012.

April 15, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of Titanic slipping into the icy Atlantic, and Paramount marks its own centennial the same month. But it's possible that "Titanic" could be released as early as that year's oft-lucrative Valentine's Day weekend.

So with "Phantom Menace" awaiting final slotting, there's a chance Cameron and Lucas could arm-wrestle over the hearts-and-flowers frame.

Lightstorm has completed tests of extended footage from "Titanic," the second-highest-grossing film in history behind Cameron's "Avatar." But no shop has been awarded work on the project.

"It's a time-consuming process, and we want to do it right," "Titanic" producer Jon Landau told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday. "Converting a movie is not a technical process; it's a creative process that has technology behind it. There were eight or nine companies used on the test, so we could compare. So far, there's only a group that went to the head of the class."

The conversion work is expected to cost $10 million-$15 million. Among the sequences that impressed most were scenes showing passengers boarding the oceanliner.

"Phantom Menace" and "Titanic" are likely to get distribution in as many 3D locations as can be secured, likely somewhere in the range of 2,000-2,500 theaters. That's as many as are available for tentpole releases today and shouldn't be tough to secure in two years because exhibitors are adding 3D screens as quickly as possible to grow the installed base.

Big marketing campaigns are likely for both pics. As when "Titanic" first unspooled in 1997, Paramount will handle the re-release domestically and Fox internationally. A simultaneous global rollout is likely.

"They're looking at these like they're almost new releases," a studio executive involved in the projects said.

The 3D versions of the pics eventually will hit Blu-ray Disc, but execs are intent on collecting as much theatrical coin as possible from the rerelease. The original "Titanic" hasn't been released on Blu-ray. Execs have been biding their time for the installed base of Blu-ray players to grow. The newest Blu-ray players now boast 3D capability, but a 3D television is required to reap extra-dimensional benefits. Landau said he is confident that 3D TV will spread quickly among consumers.

"You've already seen a big rise in 3D this year, and many people will be choosing a 3D television when they replace their TVs over the next two years," he said.

You'd have thought someone in the industry would have already thought of this, I suppose a shit load of money doesn't guarantee genuine innovation.

yeah, I'm not so sure I want to risk walking around with my eyes blinking all the time like that because my nerves have been fucked up through outside interference....and I have seen great 3D wearing glasses that didn't hurt my eyes at all, and i have pretty sensitive eyes. i think a lot has to do with how the media is originally shot, if it is converted afterward then i think the quality is poor, but when 3D cameras and equipment is used for the original filming i think the results are just fine. i still think the best 3D i have seen was at Disneyworld where they have an animated film where not only is the 3D so good that objects really seem to be floating in the air right in front of you real enough to reach out and touch but they use vents under the seats which emit odors that allow to you smell as well, creating a really immersive experience...and that was 5 years ago

So I lost my digital 3D virginity yesterday to TRON: LEGACY and at least I know now that it works well enough with my almost blind eye, to not have the evening ruined or have to stay home, if my friends wanna see a movie in 3D.I noticed the 3D effects and even twitched when the grabbling hook flew right at me, but I also was seriously sure, that it didn't look as good as it was intended to be. My buddy's wife told me it was totally awesome and it looked like she could grab the lightcycles, so I guess I was right.

Interesting is that from all the 3D trailers, that played before the movie, the one with the best 3D was that Justin Bieber concert movie! Not even DRIVE ANGRY looked that good! Although I can imagine that the movie will look better. I will try again when it comes out and if the 3D still fails to convince me, that was it for me.

i hope so. good riDDDance!

the occasional 3D film in the theater (when the content justifies it and the expensive upcharge) is OK (and would be better if the tech was improved).
but 3D tvs in the home that make you wear glasses to watch tv? handheld games with 3D? movies with enough shakycam to make you nauseous already being converted to 3D? stupid.

i'm planning on seeing the hobbit in 2D, just like every other film i see. the only film i'm currently considering seeing in 3D is transformers, and that's only because it's such a ridiculously over-the-top spectacle to begin with that you may as well go all the way over the top with it. what gives me pause however is that i saw transformers 2 in imax (REAL imax, not fake imax) and halfway through the film i was confronted with john turturro's 80-foot-high hairy ass. i still have nightmares about it to this day. the risk of something like that happening in 3D, seeing his wavy ass hairs swaying in the wind mere inches from my face.... i just can't bear the thought of it.

Wim Wenders Working On A 3D Film About Architecture
Kevin Jagernauth wrote:While James Cameron can be credited with bringing 3D back to the multiplex in a big way, leave it to guys like Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders to truly push the boundaries of the format in 2011, proving that it can do more than just make expensive, special effects blockbusters look good. For Scorsese, "Hugo" was arguably far more immersive than anything in "Avatar," with every inch of each frame a wonder to look at. Meanwhile, Wenders used 3D as a dimension to capture the energy and power of dance in a way that has never been done before, and the director is heading back to the format for a brand new project that also promises to offer more than meets than eye.

With "Pina" hitting theaters this weekend, Wenders recently talked to the Documentary Channel and revealed he's already at work on a new non-fiction film. "I have actually already started a long-term project, another documentary in 3D. It will take several years, but it’s going to be about architecture," Wenders said. "I have always wanted to do a film about architecture, and I have a lot of architect friends. But that is another subject I never really knew how to approach with film. I realized through 'Pina' that architecture is something that could have a real affinity to this medium. We started shooting already, but it’s at the very, very beginning. That’s going to be my next documentary project in 3D, but I would definitely also do a narrative film in the future in 3D as well."

If this sounds vaguely familiar, you might remember that back in 2010 Wenders hit the Venice Architecture Biennale with the short 3D video installed "If These Walls Could Talk..." an exploration of the Rolex Learning Center in Switzerland pictured above (you can watch a shitty bootleg of that video below). But it's probably a safe guess that the short is a leaping-off point for this project in which Wenders hopes to further investigate modern architecture and how we interact with it.

"Most architects build this stuff and they already have 3D representation. They can enter a building before they even build it. But I think especially with modern architecture, to make a film that really deals with the sense of place and how it changes the way people use buildings and are shaped by cities and buildings, that could not really have been done before," Wenders explains. "To feel what the room does to you, that is something that you could describe almost better in words than in a two-dimensional film. It is really about a sense of place. That’s a feeling that many architects share with filmmakers and that’s a common thing the two professions have. I’m really excited to have this tool now that gives this sense of place, and so I am quite excited about my architecture project."

However, if Wenders will direct any other movie in the interim as he works on his architecture doc remains to be seen. His film project "Everything Will Be Fine" is still in development and has been for a while. It's a drama penned by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen about a man who hits a child while driving around after having an argument at home, and repercussions of that event on his life over the next twelve years. Wenders had also been attached to direct an adapation of Ryu Murakami's novel "In The Miso Soup" -- about Japanese man giving an American a tour of the strip bars and sex clubs of Tokyo only to realize the man might be a murderer -- but that seems to have fallen off the radar. It was originally planned to shoot in the spring of this year, but obviously, that didn't happen.

Still, we're fascinated to see where Wenders will take his camera for this untitled doc and architecture really is a great subject for 3D, so we're eager to see what he does with it now that he's already got one movie in the format under his belt (though we're not quite sure whatever happened to his 3D short film "Flight" starring Ben Gazzara).

To name just a few.

Poll? either way, some of the best 3D features ever have been released this year... as well as some real shit - just like with '2D' movies

Poll added.

I'm not a big fan of 3D (so far the only movies I've seen have been Avatar and Hugo), but I will say that I heard Cave of Forgotten Dreams was supposed to be an amazing use of the format. Unfortunately it never came close to where I live.

Yeah, I think it would have been nice if a distributor would have taken a punt on Herzog's movie - because I think the audience for it is definitely out there being bored by or ignoring shit like Puss in Boots. One of the big problems I have with the current 3D cinema model (and commercial movies in general) is that they are so heavily weighted towards kiddies, or tweens (even just that word makes me want to head to the mall with a rolled up newspaper and start smacking them in the back of the head) and teens, so we get so much of shit like Justin Beiber 3D and Puss In Boots, the latter of which is currenly making some major bank.
I haven't seen Herzog's movie either. It screened once here during a major film festival and the screening sold out in record time. No one saw this fact and thought - maybe we should put it on after the festival and charge, but it's obvious why - the major chains see it's only a marginal title, and the indie and arthouse cinemas are the slowest to adopt digital cinema generalla, and Real D installations for 3D specifically. In the end I've ordered the 3D Blu Ray of 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams'. I've got a number of other Herzog titles on DVD and since I upgraded to Blu Ray and a HD tv this year this is the way I think I'm going to go with movies like this and tt3D. I've even done the same with 'Hugo' and the disc will turn up at my house in March. I figured it's actually much cheaper for me to buy this stuff on Amazon than to pay for two movie tickets and associated sugary treats, and I find watching it on tv is comparable or even sometimes better than at the movies - not in terms of the sheer size of the screen and the spectacle, but definitely in terms of the picture quality (as bright as you like, Ebertophiles) - plus there's no tweens and I've got the remote.
Still hoping to catch Tintin in the cinema with friends over this holiday break - trailer looks amazing, and lots of us all read the books as kids.

I'm sorry, but whilst I read your above post with such enthusiasm and applaud, I am a bit thrown at the end where you say you will see the likes of Hugo NOT at the cinema but on DVD instead. But will see Tintin at the cinema.

I'm a bit concerned that after you earlier complain about kids movies being what makes bank and not the more adult independent kind, you then say you aren't seeing the latter but are endorsing the former. Not challenging you to talk your way out of this one, I'm asking you to.. to... to give me faith still that there is indeed a God, after you've thrown my faith in your tapheadedness into question...

I haven't been able to get out to the cinemas for Hugo - too may work and family commitments, and it's not on much here anymore. Plus I think it will be a good one to have in the library to watch whenever I want - I'll see it at home on 3D Blu Ray, not DVD. Tintin only opened on Boxing day in Australia, and I have some holidays so I'll get to see it at the movies. I might buy the BLu Ray later when it's cheap if it's as good as all the UK Zoners say.

ALso, I know the question that is burning inside of you and don't dare ask - I'll tell you; Sex and Zen 3D is pretty tame as far as the erotica goes, and there's lots of show-off 'poke you in the eye' shots, but even tame 3D porn is pretty fun to watch.

Hugo really is gorgeous on the big screen. Scorsese knocked it out of the park.

U dates 3D re-release of 'Jurassic Park' - Also moves 'Oblivion' up to April 26, 2013
Justin Kroll wrote:Universal Pictures has slated a 3D re-release of "Jurassic Park" for July 19, 2013, and moved up the release date of the Tom Cruise starrer "Oblivion" to April 26, 2013.

"Oblivion" was initially set to bow July 10. U's move mirrors what the studio did with "Fast Five" -- slating a tentpole prior to the start of summer.

Helmed by Joseph Kosinski, "Oblivion" also stars Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Risenborough and Morgan Freeman. Story follows a soldier stationed on Earth, the surface of which has been destroyed by aliens. When he discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off a chain of events that cause him to question everything.

With "Jurassic Park," Universal follows the trend of studios converting 2D pics to 3D and re-releasing them, such as Disney with its animated classics and, most recently, "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" from Fox.

Re: Tsui Hark in 3D!!! & Detective Dee Two

CHINA BEAT: Tsui Hark & Bona Exploring 3D Together
James Marsh wrote:This week Chinese film giant Bona Film Group announced that it plans to shoot two new films in 3D this year. Tsui Hark will direct a remake of the 1960 film Tracks In The Snowy Forest, while Jacob Cheung is on board to helm White Hair Witch, a retelling of The Bride With White Hair. This news comes after the phenomenal success of Bona's previous foray into the technology, Tsui Hark's Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, which not only amassed over US$100 million at the Chinese box office, but also displayed Tsui's keen understanding of how to get the most from the added depth of field.

Like many, my views on 3D are that it is basically an unnecessary gimmick we can all do without. At a time when cinema attendances were frighteningly low, the championing of 3D as a new filmgoing experience that could not be matched in the home drew filmgoers back to the multiplexes. The push from the major studios also forced cinema chains around the world to go digital, which will drastically cut distribution costs in the future. The aesthetic benefits of 3D, however, have been made obvious all too slowly. 3D only ever seems to bring anything positive to our movie experience when the film was shot that way in the first place and the director in question actually understands how to use it to his or her benefit.

With Flying Swords, Tsui proved that he did understand how to utilise this extra dimension to his cinematic frame, and the news that he will be further exploring the technology has me interested. Bona also revealed that they will be investing in a new digital film technology centre, situated in Tianjin. Both films will apparently be shot at the facility, making full use of 3D equipment, but also the invaluable knowledge Tsui has gleaned from his previous production. However, before he gets started on Snowy Forest, Tsui is to direct the sequel to Detective Dee - surely a project that is screaming out to be shot in 3D!

Incidentally, Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate will be opening across North America in IMAX 3D, courtesy of Indomina Releasing, in September and ranks as one of China's very best films of 2011. Do not miss out on the chance to see it on the big screen!

‘The Wizard of Oz’ Imax 3D Conversion: Polishing a National Treasure
I saw it. It's a lion! It's huge!
David S. Cohen wrote:“When I first heard that this was being done, I wasn’t excited, I was frightened,” said George Feltenstein, senior VP of theatrical catalog marketing for Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, says of the Imax 3D conversion of “The Wizard of Oz.”

“I thought, you’re taking a national treasure, and can you do it justice?”

Ang Lee Narrows Lead Actor Choices For ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:The film will explore new methods, both technological and artistic, with the goal of further engaging the audience. Lee will use the Sony F65 camera shooting in native 3D, high resolution and with an ultra-high frame rate to create a different cinematic syntax in service of the story. He envisions creating a new way for audiences to experience drama, including the heightened sensation that soldiers really feel on the battlefield and on the home front.

COLLIDER JULY 27, 2017:
IMAX Shifting to More 2D-Only Presentations Citing “Clear Preference” Among Domestic Consumers
MATT GOLDBERG wrote:
Following the success of Avatar, studios were tripping over themselves to release their movies in 3D. The technology was new, James Cameron had shown that it could be used effectively, and, more importantly, theaters could charge more for it. Unfortunately, the product rarely lived up to the tech. Even when studios finally figured out how to do solid 3D post-conversions, the appeal was wearing off. Every tentpole was in 3D, but audiences were losing interest because for every Gravity or Hugo, there were 20 other movies where the 3D didn’t improve the experience. While tentpole movies are still getting 3D post-conversions, it’s clear that at least American audiences think that 2D is just fine.

And IMAX is listening. According to THR, IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond says they “will play more digital 2D versions of Hollywood movies domestically, given a ‘clear preference’ from consumers for 2D in North America.” Currently, Dunkirk is only playing in IMAX 2D, and it did quite well this weekend. While you could argue that’s Christopher Nolan using his power to make sure his movie isn’t forced into 3D, IMAX also revealed that when it shows Blade Runner 2049 this October, those screenings will be in 2D only.

IMAX will also be showing preference to movies that use their cameras. Movies that have been converted into IMAX will be getting one-week only showings in order for IMAX to show more movies, but films that were shot in IMAX like Dunkirk and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War will receive longer runs.

Personally, I think this is the smart way to go. Speaking from experience, when I go to press screenings now, fewer and fewer are shown in 3D, and it’s clear across the board that 3D hasn’t really taken off. When you go to buy a new TV, the selling point isn’t that they’re in 3D (most new models aren’t), but rather that they’re 4K. People would rather have a better-quality image than stuff coming out the screen. While I don’t think 3D is totally dead, especially since it continues to do well overseas, I’m glad that we’re returning more to 2D. If there are filmmakers who want to actually use 3D rather that studios looking to make a quick buck, the technology will still be there.
