    I doubt I will be seeing it in cinemas if it isn't also shown in 2D; 3D gives me migraines. I am hoping this is just some sort of twatty fad. And if so the sooner it passes the better, as far as I am concerned.

    I imagine this is a local availability issue, but every 3D film that has come out in my area has also come out in the 2D format in theaters as well. Even Avatar and films with 3D in the title. There are now usually more than one 3D films available in the theaters at a time and few theaters in my area have the capacity to accomodate a 3D showing for all of them. If I want to see a film in 2D I can see it at the closest theater. If I want to see it in 3D that is not the big one out for the moment I usually have to go further afield.

    For 3D I personally only see live action films if they were filmed in 3D. Animations are generally well done even when older films upgraded to 3D.

    I understand others disliking 3D films and refusing to see any more after having bad experiences with them. I don't understand people complaining the option exists for those of us who enjoy 3D films unless there are areas that refuse to show 2D versions of these films.

    EDIT: @figsdad I wear glasses and found the 3D glasses fit over my regular glasses just fine with no comfort or weight issues. My lenses tend towards the heavier side usually so that might make a difference. I have noticed friends of mine who do not normally wear glasses find the experience uncomfortable. I do have other glasses wearing friends that dislike 3D movies because of comfort/migraine reasons. I do not know what causes the difference but being a glasses wearer does not appear to be the deciding factor.

    I couldn't care less about it being in 3D. At the end of the day though, I have no doubts in my mind that Bay will make the most of the technology, his movies may lack consistency of plot but the guy knows how to shoot action scenes to make them exciting, I just hope he doesn't go too far with it to create a 3D clusterfup.

    Pros and cons of 3D aside, I'm glad it's being shot in genuine 3D, not shitty post-conversion :)

    Every word is true.

    And say what you will about Bay's ability to tell a story - the man knows how to shoot good scenes, and I'm glad he said earlier that he wouldn't do 3D unless he could do it right.

    Gives me hope that at least the film is being designed around the gimmick, rather than it being slapped on afterward to the detriment of everything.

    You can wear the 3D glasses over glasses, I do and it works just fine.

    I too have a few bones to pick with this so called 3D revolution, but when 3D's done properly and not just slapped on in post production it can genuinly enhance a movie.

    This is why i'm really looking forward to TF3 in 3D. Say what you like about Michael Bay as a director, but the guy really knows his onions when it comes to cameras and the technical side of cinema. I'm in no doubt that he will exploit it to maximum effect, and this film is going one hell of a spectacle as a result.

    I just hope that he's been taking notes from the James Cameron school of 3D, whereby the cinema screen is used as a window to look into the world he's created, enhancing the sense of immersion, rather than using it as a gimmick to have shit fly out of the screen at you every five minutes. Those sort of antics may impress in the theatre, but they look silly and ultimately redundant when the film is eventually released on dvd.

    As long as its also in 2D, I will be alright. 3D does not work for me.

    I agree with you, but I'm pretty sure Bay can set up some shots that will look awesome both in 2D as well as 3D, flying out of the screen.

    Remember the scene from ROTF where Optimus fights Megatron in the warehouse and flips over in midair, while shooting? Now imagine that scene being in 3D. :)

    the only downside to 3D is the price of the ticket....but 3D makes shitty movies a little better no doubt...Alice in wonderland and beowolf are prime examples...I am sure tf3 will be just as shit as rotf but to honest I am curious to see the bots in 3D...so that will bring me into the theater to see it instead of waiting for the home version to come out...3D helps out in most cases

    Very true. The Slow mo-bullet would have also looked the tits. And the forest battle... And mudflap being sucked into devs...

    Ah hell, you're several shades of right. This is going to be bot-porn of the highest order. Mr Bay, bring the Gunishment.

    I've had mixed experiences with the 2 films I've seen in 3D so far - How to Train Your Dragon looked fantastic, but the effect just didn't work with Toy Story 3, where the 3D was barely noticeable for much of the movie. :(  I can see the effect working well for our favourite giant robots though!

    Im not really sure if TF3 should been in 3D. I havent really been a fan of 3D. To me 3D is more of a novelty but after James Cameron released Avatar in 3D every filmmaker thinks every film needs to be in 3D, I dont think they understand what made Avatar the highest grossing film of all time. I honestly still don`t undertstand what-so damn great about the film. It`s really Hippie Smurfs in SPACE!!!!!!!


    However i thinks it`s better that the film is filmed completely in 3D, than deciding in like March before the release, Bay decideds TF3 will be in
    3D. Then the 3D would therefore be useless.

    It's good to hear that it's being shot in 3D, but I'm not sure if I want to see the 3D showing. Not because of the glasses or any possible headaches, but because of the damn blurry cam. Avatar suffered from a few moments like that (like when Jake was chased by that black creature), and it just made things even harder to see. I dread how much TF3 would suffer from it.
