Sounds like it could be a possibility…or a rumour started to give thought to the possibility…or simply a rumour to raise company stock! Whichever, it’s worthy of a mention. From Reuters through Yahoo:
In-Three…Calif.-based postproduction company that converts traditional live-action and animated movies into 3-D, already is at work applying its patented and trademarked “dimensionalization” process to “King Kong,” which opens domestically on December 14…
…But the betting is, whoever is involved, a 3-D “Kong” will appear in theaters several months into the movie’s run. A Universal spokesman denied that any plans are afoot to give “Kong” a 3-D boost during its run, saying, “No, (‘King Kong’) will not be shown in 3-D.” But 3-D fans can still dream, can’t they?
Blah, blah, blah…it’s the usual press release which everyone denies but was leaked from one of the companies mentioned. I know, I worked in a media company and we’ve done it ourselves! I don’t think fans would be dreaming of a 3D version of the movie, especially not one that means I have to wear something other than my current glasses…how would they cope with that?
Nah, for me, 3D is a gimmick for gimmick movies. I’d purposely avoid it. You?
