Has Hollywood Found Something Better Than IMAX?
It was only about five years ago that James Cameron's Avatar changed the world's perspective on the cinematic experience and both IMAX and 3D. And while we've seen some marvelous titles take advantage of both formats in the time since, the reality is that the industry is now regularly looking for a way to stay fresh and innovative.

MIT Has Developed A Glasses-Free 3D Projector
Regardless of your thoughts on the effectiveness that 3D has on a feature film, we can all pretty much agree on one thing: 3D glasses suck. Their bulky, uncomfortable, and have the effect of wearing sunglasses indoors. And let's not even talk about the pain in the ass they are for people like me who wear prescription glasses. Because of this problem, the obvious next evolution for 3D technology is the elimination of the glasses. Complicated as that might seem, it would appear that the technology now exists.

Darren Aronofsky's Noah To Be Converted To 3D For Select Foreign Markets
Director Darren Aronofsky shot his upcoming biblical epic Noah in 2D and that's exactly how the film will be coming to theaters Stateside next month - but the same can't be said for the movie's international release. Paramount Pictures plans to shake up their global release of the blockbuster by creating a special 3D version that will only be playing in cinemas outside of the U.S.

Why Gravity Absolutely Has To Be Seen In Theaters, And In 3D
I see movies for free for my job, but even I see a trailer now and then that makes me think I can wait for it to hit Netflix. But once in a blue moon comes a movie that really demands to be seen in the theater as the director intended. And as I watched Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity in 3D, I became acutely aware that this was the only it should be seen.

The Wizard Of Oz 3D Will Also Hit Blu-ray This Year
The Wizard of Oz is gearing up for its 75th Anniversary, which among other things, makes the film very old and in desperate need of a touch-up. Not only is the film and sound getting digitally enhanced for the anniversary, but Warner Bros. is also putting together a 3D and IMAX release of the film, that will then be brought to Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Ultraviolet on October 1.

Ice Age: Continental Drift Will Float On To 3D Blu-ray In December
The Ice Age franchise is beginning to feel as old as its namesake. The fourth flick in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift, follows the ragtag band of now-extinct animals as they meet up with an equally ragtag group of pirates. If you missed the movie in theaters—and you have children—you can catch Ice Continental Drift on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD beginning on December 11.

James Cameron Bringing 3D To China
For better or for worse, you can thank James Cameron for the current era of 3D films we're living in . Of course, Cameron pioneered 3D technology that looked like nothing you'd ever seen in Avatar, and didn't exactly ask for a wave of copycats and poorly converted 3D films to follow

I, Robot 3D Blu-Ray Gift Set Will Come With A Bust Of Sonny
The regular Blu-Ray 3D sets and the limited edition gift sets won’t street until October 23, but if you happen to be hanging out at Comic Con right now, you may be one of the lucky 250 able to pre-order a set over at booth #4313. There’s no word on exact bonus features with the sets so far, but the box with the gift set looks pretty huge, and Fox Home Entertainment is assuring us it will come with the 3D Blu-Ray, a DVD version of the film, and an entire disc of extras.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Box Set Brings Home The Tesseract
Yep, that's a rather badass replica of Nick Fury's briefcase from The Avengers, complete with a light-up version of the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube. As you'd expect, the Phase One box set includes Blu-ray versions of all the "canonical" Marvel Universe films thus far: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers.

UPDATED: Man Of Steel Not Going To IMAX 3D After All
Next week sees the release of The Dark Knight, the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, but that won't be the end of the filmmaker's time in the world of comic book movies. Though he won't be involved with Warner Bros.' Justice League film, he is an executive producer on Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. His involvement with that project, however, has raised some questions about how the new Superman flick would be released.

Life Of Pi Extended Scene To Be Previewed Before 3D Showings Of Prometheus And Other Movies
If ever there's a story that could benefit from proper use of 3D technology, it's the big screen adaptation of Yann Martel's adventure novel Life of Pi. Martel paints a vivid, colorful picture in the telling of Pi's story, which offers real potential for a visually stunning feature film. Factor in Ang Lee's involvement as director, and Life of Pi may just be one of the must-see-in-3D movies this year.

Wrath Of The Titans Director Jonathan Liebesman Discusses Doing 3D And CG Right
It ain’t easy getting work in this industry, especially a film like Wrath of the Titans, but boy did director Jonathan Liebesman take on, well, a monster. While Clash of the Titans went on to make a killing at the box office, $493.2 million worldwide, many moviegoers weren’t particularly happy with the experience. In a way, not only is Liebesman responsible for making his own movie good, but also for making up for the last one a bit.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Ticket
Back in 2010, when 3D was still a fresh, new idea and was constantly being misused, we published a feature titled "The 10 Best 3-D Movies And What Hollywood Can Learn From Them". In the editorial, Josh, Katey and I wrote about the 3D films that we thought best utilized the technology. One of those films was 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. Now, four years later, that movie’s sequel is arriving in theaters. Will its 3D be as effective as it was the first time?

Get Custom 3D Glasses Based On Your Favorite Avengers Superhero
There is a heavyweight comic showdown coming this summer. The Avengers vs. The Dark Knight Rises. Marvel vs. DC. 3D vs. IMAX. While Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol may have made a strong case for IMAX over 3D, these new specs might help tip the scales back to the third dimension.

Cirque Du Soleil Gets The 3D Treatment And A Big Screen Release With Worlds Away
For those of us who have never seen Cirque Du Soleil live, Judd Apatow gave us a sample of a production of it in Knocked Up, and now those with an interest in seeing more of it on the big screen in a more focused style (as opposed to the snippet shown to us in front of two guys on mushrooms), Paramount is set to deliver with a 3D Event Film called Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away.

Martin Scorsese Considering 3D For His Next Two Projects
“It's only a means, not an end,” Scorsese explained. “Real 3D is beautiful, but it's just one choice, one tool among many, and you only want to use it if it's the right tool.” Will it be the right tool for his next two projects? Scorsese tells the trade that he is “considering the possibility,” though stops short of confirming anything.

J.J. Abrams Says Star Trek Sequel Will Use Post-Conversion 3D, IMAX Being Considered
Movies actually shot in 3D will always trump those that have been post-converted, but the truth is that the latter has been getting much better recently. While the post-conversion fad got off to a horrible start with the release of Clash of the Titans - which is easily one of the worst 3D movies we've seen in recent years - some of 2011's best 3D movies weren't actually shot stereoscopically.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Immortals Ticket
Welcome to our 33rd edition of “To 3D Or Not To 3D.” Since we started this feature paired with the release of Clash of the Titans [shudder], we’ve analyzed some of the best 3D movies have to offer (like Legends of the Guardians) to some of the worst (like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). This week marks the release of Immortals, a new epic starring Henry Cavill, Luke Evans and Mickey Rourke. But is the 3D up to snuff?

The Hobbit Crew Posts Fourth Video Blog, This One About 3D
Yeah, they're tossing around a lot of cliches about the effect of 3D, that it "immerses" you in the story and that "you really feel like you're in it," but we've learned several times that CGI-heavy movies like the Lord of the Rings films and The Hobbit lend themselves well to 3D, so there's reason to believe it will work here. Also, the broad subject of "3D" allows this featurette to wander all over the set

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Puss In Boots Ticket
Earlier this year I reviewed the 3D for Kung Fu Panda 2 the most recent movie from Dreamworks Animation before Puss in Boots. I ended up giving the film a score of 32 out of 35 because the 3D utilization was excellent, almost to the point of perfection. Now the question is can the 3D in Puss in Boots top it?

Martin Scorsese's Fantasy World Expands In Second Hugo Trailer
The real draw of Hugo, beyond the eye-popping production values or John Logan’s immersive script, will be Scorsese’s first foray into 3D storytelling. From everything we are hearing, it’s some of the best 3D ever attempted. Which, given Scorsese’s reputation as a visual genius, should surprise no one.

The vast, vast majority of commenters seemed to think the 3D trend needed to end, including these Disney re-releases. When yesterday's news broke there were definitely people saying that too, but a little more excitement too-- and that's just two weeks after the Lion King 3D re-release

Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid, Monsters Inc. And Beauty And The Beast To Get 3D Re-Releases
This was inevitable. Since its release on September 16th, Disney's The Lion King 3D has won the weekend box office race twice and has earned almost $80 million. The re-release was bigger than anyone could have imagined, and it's hard to even say why it happened. The point is that the studio has now opened a major portal for new revenue streams and now they have announced that they will try and keep that portal from closing.

Hugh Jackman Says 3D Is Being Considered For Les Miserables
I've said it at least 3,000 times before and I'll probably say it at least another 3,000 times in the future: not every movie needs to be in 3D. While movies like Avatar and Tron Legacy, there's no reason why Baz Luhrmann should should be filming his adaptation of The Great Gatsby in the third dimension.

Great Britain Isn't Feeling This Whole 3D Thing
We here at Cinema Blend have done our best to accept that 3D is going to be part of the film-going experience for a while. We hope that our To 3D or Not To 3D segments have been helpful for you in deciding which movies will be worth the extra cash, and which ones to just see in 2D. But despite our begrudged acceptance of the format not everyone has taken to the 3D, and a recent study has shown that people in the UK are even more against it than we are here in the US.

Your 3D Movie Ticket Price May Go Up Now That Sony's No Longer Paying For The Glasses
Did you know that when you shell out 3 or 4 extra bucks for a 3D movie ticket, that doesn't even include the price of the glasses? Turns out the 3D surcharge is something that's been slapped on by the movie exhibitor for the sake of the "enhanced experience"-- and to cover the cost of installing the 3D systems to begin with-- and the glasses themselves have been paid for by the studios

Underworld: Awakening Confirmed For IMAX Day-And-Date Release
The fourth Underworld film will be released on IMAX by Sony Picture’s Entertainment as a day-and-date release on Jan. 20, 2012. It’s the first installment in the series to be screened in IMAX, as well as the first to screen in 3D. And as Will points out, the latest trailer appears to go out of its way to utilize the technology by throwing as much as it can off the screen at its audience.

Would Les Mis stand out in 3D? Sure. But could the glasses needed to utilize the technology dampen the visual appeal of Hooper’s cinematography? Absolutely yes. MarketSaw says it's receiving this bit of news from a source close to the cinematography side of the production. But since this production is still in early stages of development, we need to treat this as a rumor until we hear something solid from Universal.

It's almost a shame that Shark Night's such a completely terrible movie, because most of the 3D is actually pretty good. Far better than you'd expect in such a low-rent, throwaway horror flick, particularly one directed by the guy responsible for the awful 3D on The Final Destination.

Green Lantern's Home Release Will Come In 3D, Extras Fail To Impress
The Green Lantern release will hit 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD on October 14th. The whole thing plays a high-cost, low-quality tune. You’ll get the most for your money with the more-reasonable-for-what-you-get $43.99 3D Blu-Ray, but even then, the special features only equate to a couple of featurettes, additional scenes, an extended cut of the film, and a Green Lantern: The Animated Series preview.
