I saw the trailer for this in front of Skyfall. I am excited about seeing this on the big screen again.

If the conversion is of the same quality as Titanic, at least it will be worth a look. I know Spielberg is notoriously picky (thank goodness!) but some of these conversions turn out poorly no matter what, simply due to the cinematography, fast cuts etc.

Don't think this will work well. Cundey's cinematography wasn't the sharpest to begin with.

I'm guess that Tintin gave Spielberg some insight on what does and doesn't work for 3-D and he's said that Jurassic Park is the only movie of his that he wants to convert so I think it's fair to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I'd rather see them skip the conversion all together and just re-release Jaws or Titanic or Star Wars or Toy Story, etc. solely in its regular 2-D version. People loved those movies the first time around so I think they'd still sell tickets without the 3-D conversion and they wouldn't have to spend money on the conversion.

Or, better yet, skip the 3D conversions and the re-releases and just concentrate on quality new movies!
Crazy idea, I know.
