    Crap. All main wb films will be in 3-d plus all dc comics films will be also. :mad 

    All Warner Bros Tentpole Movies Will Be Released in 3D | /Film

    "Warner Bros will be releasing five movies in 3D in 2010 and nine movies in 2011. Alan Horn announced at ShoWest that all the studios tentpole movies, superhero films, and big special effects releases, will be distributed in 3D. He called it the new standard for the company. And yes, he was clear that this includes all of the future DC Comic Books films. That means that the new Superman and third Batman will be released in 3D."

    Plus expect to pay more for 3-d. 3-d prices will go up next week!

    This gimmick is going too far.

    Batman 3 in 3D? Totally unnecessary.

    Superman and Green Lantern in 3D sounds very appealing.

    Batman, not so much.

    Awesome. 3D rules.

    If you don't like it, vote with your wallet.

    So movies are losing money due to high ticket prices and a poor economy, and their solution is to raise prices? I mean seriously for a couple more dollars than theatre prices I can just buy the dvd when it comes out. And they already have 3-D Tv's coming out, so the 3d won't be a customer draw for long. Movies are going to raise their prices too high and people will stop going completely.

    They want to make the money while 3D is hot. There's also a high cost with changing over to 3D. It's actually been quite a profitable year for cinema, and 3D has been a big part of that.

    Long term, I think dvd/blu-ray will probably dry up much like cd did. In the future, movies may have to go back to the old model of making most of their profits from cinema screenings.

    I don't like the 3-D gimmick, but can't get too worked up about it. As long as the films are still released in 2-D, I'll just go to that version, avoid the 3-D and save some money on the ticket price.

    3D right now represents something that theatres can offer that televisions and computers can't (yet). So its a gimmick to get people in the seats, and all the studios are going to play it up as much as they can.

    Wonder if this also has something to do with Disney shortening the time between theater and Blu-ray/DVD release. A lot of theaters are angry with them because Alice in Wonderland is being released on Blu-ray/DVD after 12 weeks instead of 17 weeks. They don't get as much profit so it's time to jack up the price in retaliation. Yes, I know that's Disney, but who knows, maybe other studios are planning the same thing.

    Haven't seen a movie in 3D, and I doubt I ever will.

    the only thing about 3D that sucks is that there's so few theaters...the closest one is like 45 minutes away and the shows are always packed/full. Avatar weeks after release you still had to buy your tickets hours in advance.

    Actually TV can, and from what I saw at Best Buy yesterday, I thought it was better than at the theater.

    I think I'll be watching in 2D in the theater and just wait for Blu-ray for the 3D.

    Movies haven't been losing money, in fact despite ticket prices the revenue from tickets alone have rose. Also, while you might not want to pay the money and get a DVD instead, it doesn't matter to studios because you're paying regardless.

    ...therefore supply and demand says build more screens.

    All the cinemas near me have 3D screens now.

    I am not sure they are going to do a good job with it though.... The rumor that I keep hearing is that they are filming the movie in 2D, and converting it into 3D later. Which doesn't sound like "quality" to me. However, I am still looking forward too this movie more than any other coming out soon :D 

    3D is.... boring, and since you have to wear the glasses, it's a chore. 3D TV is here now. And.... you have to wear the damn glasses! WTF? The thing with 3D is... it only works if the screen takes up your entire field of vision. TV doesn't do that.

    So far I have seen 2 movies in 3D (IMAX). Avatar and Alice in Wonderland. Both were good movies. But only Avatar did 3D right, and only kinda.. Alice was terrible. the 3D was blurry and harsh.
