But apparently there are still some folks who value 3D
I think this is a great "uptick" for Disney and for the format.
It shows, at least for certain titles, that there is definitely still a demand for 3D product.
Let's hope it prompts the studios to continue supporting 3D
Not to burst the bubble of the thread that 3D is somehow making a come back.
The author fails to take into account that over 50% of the tickets sold for Rogue One theatrically, and something like 65-70% of the tickets sold for The Force Awakens theatrically, were for one of the various 3D formats: IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, Dolby 3D, etc. So despite this guy's unprofessional snark (remember real journalism? I do), yes, there are people that still value 3D. When a billion dollar grossing movie sells more than 50% of its tickets in the 3D format, there shouldn't be such shock that some of those people would also want to buy it in that format too.
I'm not sure theatrical ticket sales necessarily correlate to a love of 3D. Around here, anyway, if you wanted to see it in IMAX or wanted to secure reserved seating, you had no option but to view the 3D version. It also played on far more 3D screens than 2D.
3D is not making a comeback. You cannot buy a 3D TV. The majority of people do not buy 3D discs and watch them in 3D. We know we are in the minority. Funny thing is the 3D is not that great according to people who have reviewed this title.
The 3D Bluray of ROGUE ONE is ONLY available at Target and Best Buy.
