    From tonights London Evening Standard newspaper:
    "3D films lead the way as cinema ticket sales go through the roof"
    "Cinema tcket sales have soared this year on the back of hit films in digital 3D.....Box office takings up eight percent on the same period last year......ticket prices higher for 3D to reflect higher cost of making them...London now..with almost half its cinemas having at least one [digital screen].

    An article on the upcoming Harry Potter movie only coming out in 2D at first has lots of comments saying that 3D is overused and not worth it. The article is on Yahoo and you can click on thumbs up or down on the comments. The anti-3D comments have lots of thumbs ups.

    digital projectors not needed for 3D

    if Photo Engineer had the good luck of visiting Photokina this year he would have seen tucked away in a far corner of the massive Fuji display a glass enclosed case exhibiting the range of Fuji color negative motion picture films and a new and patented lens which can be used on a 35mm film projector to create 3D. I hope in fact that this arrangement can substitute for the expensive purchase of a digital projector for 3D and if so it should allay his fears of a great reduction in the production of 35mm release prints.

    3D is the Quadraphonic of 2010.

    Total f'ing joke of a technology.

    Want more consumers coming to your films? Increase the quality of your content. Gimmicks only go so far - and trust me, 3D is a *gimmick* and a half - thoroughly unneeded for the majority of cinema content.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    George Lucas announced, a few weeks back, that he was going to convert the entire Star Wars saga to 3D. The Phantom Menace" will come out in 2012. Not sure what process he's going to use though.

    It is possible to convert old films to 3D. Kodak recently patented one such method. A photo of the Fuji display was posted here recently with the lament on how much the product line had shrunk.

    Only way to sustain film production in the long run is supporting the chinese.

    Start buing Lucky and aother stuff from China - direct from Hong Kong and send them a strong message that they can keep their lines running.

    Kodak and Fuji will die off, no matter what.

    The projectors are Sony 4K projectors, seeing as most films are also mastered in 2K before being printed to film... the quality can be much better too, 3D or not.

    The problem is that most people are not interested in petty things like "plot", "good acting", and "quality cinematography." They just want blue people to jump out of the screen at them.
