    I guess that'd be okay. I wouldn't mind it that's for sure. But I know a lot of other people would.

    Ehh, Bay isn't really a fan of 3D. And while it probably would be cool, I hope it's not implemented in such a way that they shoot/create all the action scenes specifically to look good in 3D. What I mean is, I don't want them to sacrifice things they could potentially do for 3D.

    avatar was INSANE in 3-D. TF3 should be good as well.

    Didn't Michael Bay say he hated 3-D and would never do it? And at least we know Shia is coming back.

    Spielberg is in an argument about 3D with Bay. We'll see what happens.

    Bay thinks it's too gimmicky. Knowing him, he won't allow it.

    Yep. ROTF went on to make $800 million.

    And as much as I cannot stand Avatar, their use of 3-D was rather clever and I hope TF3 does something similar rather than just make objects jump out of the screen.

    It was a quote. I thought ROTF was an enjoyable film.

    Yeah, but quotes don't appear in quotes so I edited. Sorry if you thought I mistook your opinion.

    I'm not so sure about that. My theory on Bay is he'll do anything, so long as the price is right. If that means lingering on a product logo for a few seconds of film, glamorising the military, or shooting a year ahead of scheduale, he'll do it if the money is good.

    Besides, Bay is all about gimmicks. I don't see how some guy making a movie loaded with explosions based on transforming toys can be on a highhorse about gimmicks.

    My theory here is he'd just rather not be bothered. Bay is very attached to shooting on film and he's developed various techniques over the years to achieve his distinctive look. Shooting 3d almost certainly means shooting digital, and I think he's simply reluctant to make the leap.

    To some extent, I think that after the reaction to ROTF, a TF movie is gonna need 3d to entice audiences back. The downside is you double the rendering expenses for the CG. But 3d ticket prices cost more, and I'm sure that was a factor in Avatar crossing the $1 billion gross mark so fast. Even if the costs cancel out the benefit, it's good publicity to have a high grossing movie. If nothing else, it'll be something for fanboys to point to when critics pan the movie.

    I'd see it. Can you imagine seeing Unicron eating Earth IN 3-D!!! :D  That and it would at least stand out from the first two.

    I've never been a big fan of 3D. IDK, I just can't get into it.

    3D is nice when it is implemented correctly. Avatar did have some good use with it, without it getting obnoxious. If they really decide to do this, I hope they follow suit.

    If the CES was any measure, 3D, for better or worse, looks to be the next big thing. (Frankly, that doesn't make me excited at all.)

    As long as the name of the movie isn't "Transformers: 3D," I'll be fine with it. Besides, I'll likely try to see it in 2D first.
