Is 3D really the next big thing? I've yet to see one of the recent 3D pics. Hell, we don't even have an Imax around here.

If I ran a chain of theaters, the digital 3-D that Disney and Sony have trotted out over the last couple of years is something I'd be very, very interested in. It's something you can't get anywhere else and which can't be easily pirated. Heck, I know that I've made the effort to go to 3-D showings when both versions were readily available (read: I didn't have to go out to the furniture store in Reading), and I normally try to avoid digital projection. Still, if studios and theaters are going to bank on this, they've got to be making films with 3-D in mind. Polar Express and Monster House weren't great movies, but they were made to be exhibited in 3-D and shone. Chicken Little didn't look nearly so impressive.

I have to say that the idea of a James Cameron movie in 3-D is interesting to me but I would be interested in that movie it if it was in 1-D. In other words, 3-D would never get me to see a movie that I didn't already have an interest in (I'm sure that I'll never see that new Disney movie with the dinosaur in the future) but I do think that 3-D will be a gimmick that helps boost ticket sales.

All the theater chains are jumping on board the Digital 3-D bandwagon. I don't know if people will pay double, but the box office of previous releases has proven that they will pay $1.50-$2.00 more for Digital 3-D. Some of us have known 3-D was where it's at for some time. Glad to see some of you are catching on! Of course, the Digital platform makes it much easier for the theatres to provide a good presentation, something that was often a problem in the past. I don't see everything going 3-D, but it's already certain that 3-D features will no longer be a rarity.
