Word has leaked out from our retail sources that Paramount is set

to release 3 previously exclusive 3D Blu-ray titles to the general

population on September 6th



How To Train Your Dragon

Megamind

Monsters vs. Aliens



These will be Best Buy exclusives.


This is great news for these three titles that have been the object of

desire for 3D display owners since they became exclusive releases

over the past year or more.

I will be getting all three. I have been waiting for them since I got a 3D television. The outrageous prices being asked at Ebay kept them from me until now.

I actually got Dragon on ebay for $20. It was just a matter of timing nothing more. I am pleased with that disc so just Megamind and MVA for me.

Are these the only 3D "exclusives" to go to general release? The only one of the bunch that interests me is HTTYD.

These are exclusives from Paramount going into general release. Fox has released its once exclusive ICE AGE 3 to Best Buy now (or is it Target?), and it will go into general release at the end of this month along with their 3D releases of RIO and NARNIA 3.

HTTYD is one that I will definitely pick up. Maybe "Megamind" as well. I saw that the 3D trailer for "Narnia: VoTDT" was in the proper theatrical aspect ratio. I wonder if the actual release will be done that way or will Apted change the AR?

That's a very interesting question, and one I hope the studio will answer by sending us a review copy of the film in 3D.

I picked up MegaMind and How to Train Your Dragon, very happy to be able to grab these. Monsters vs Aliens is on my list, but with BB releasing the Shrek films in 3D, Toy Story films, and Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows 1 & 2 all coming out of the next couple weeks, its on the backburner for now.

In the past week or so, I've been able to find time to watch both How to Train Your Dragon  and Monsters Vs. Aliens in 3D, and both experiences were far superior to my time with them in 2D. Both of these films were meant to be seen in 3D. I'm very much looking forward to Megamind in 3D, but since of the three I watched it the most recently in 2D, I am waiting a bit before I jump back to the movie in 3D.


I'm also eager to get to the Toy Story films in 3D (for review purposes) as I loved each of the three movies so much and look forward to seeing what 3D adds to the mix.
