    The first official image of Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Thor has been released. In the background you can also see Chris Hemsworth as Thor, for the first time holding his hammer, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. Marvel has also announced that both Thor and Captain America will be released in 3D. Audiences have turned on post-conversion 3D this year and the percentage of gross attributed to 3D screens has been dropping with each release. Apparently the studio recognizes that proclaiming that they ...
  • Transformers 3 Being Filmed in 3D
    Posted July 2nd, 2010 at 1:58 pm No Comments
    Good news on the 3D front (which has been rare as of late) as it has been discovered that Michael Bay has decided to shoot Transformers 3 with 3D cameras rather than go the post-production route. Three films recently have been converted in post with all of them (Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, The Last Airbender) being criticized for doing so. Audiences have started to display backlash towards 3D largely caused by disappointment from their experiences in those films. Even Toy Story 3...

    Back in January MLB 10: The Show was demoed in 3D at CES. Today Sony president and CEO Jack Tretton announced that the PS3 will have 20 titles available in 3D this fiscal year. Amongst the games demonstrated in 3D at the presentation was MLB 10: The Show. Beginning tomorrow four titles will be available in 3D but The Show is not one of them. No date has been set for The Show going 3D but it would seem to be a near certainty that it will at some point. They also have yet to detail the availa...

    Back in January EA Sports president Peter Moore seemed excited about the possibility of implementing 3D in sports games. That early intrigue seems to have died off though after having witnessed prototypes in action. In an interview with MCV Moore displays skepticism about 3D and how it could work for the games. “We are looking at 3D but there are challenges,” said EA Sports president Peter Moore. “I’ve seen a number of our games running in 3D, and we’re learning that we can’t ta...
  • 3D Screens About To Be Stretched Thin
    Posted February 16th, 2010 at 11:34 am 6 Comments
    With all the discussion about how 3D is taking off and studios jumping on the bandwagon its easy to overlook that theaters still have not converted enough screens to handle demand for more than one new film at a time. The most recent count was approximately 3400 3D screens nationwide out of nearly 40,000 total screens. The cost of converting, being upwards of $100K per screen, has caused hesitation in the past with uncertainty that it would be worth the investment. However leading up to the...
  • 3D Gaming Not Imminent for EA Sports
    Posted January 29th, 2010 at 3:46 pm 8 Comments
    There has been a lot of discussion recently about 3D gaming and even some developments towards it becoming a reality. Earlier this month at CES it was MLB 10: The Show on display in 3D. Now EA Sports president Peter Moore has addressed it by talking about it in an interview earlier this week. Absolutely. I'm not making any announcements, but it's no coincidence that of the 3D [TV] broadcasts I've seen in the last two years, I can count the NBA All-Star event in Las Vegas, while ESPN has annou...
  • MLB 10: The Show Demoed in 3D

    The first gameplay video of MLB 10: The Show came out of CES late last week. Being demoed at the same event were Sony prototype 3D TVs with a handful of their games including The Show. Obviously this video isn't going to display itself in 3D but it does offer an opportunity to get a look at it in action and listen to the comments of those in the room. It's clear that this is a technology that will be integrated into games in the coming years as consumers adapt 3D capable TVs. What interest ...
