Are 3D Pirates Less Profitable Than 2D Ones???

pirates of the caribbean hurt by 3d

According to analysts, the answer is aye yes!

While Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides may have had the biggest international opening of all time, BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield seems to think that the film would have fared even better in the U.S. if it had been released on more 2D screens.

Here's what Greenfield had to say about it:

"U.S. consumers are increasingly rejecting 3D movies."

Richard says that audiences are concerned with higher ticket prices for 3D movies, and he also believes that young children don't want to wear 3D glasses.

We certainly can't argue the higher prices. It costs a small fortune for large families to go see a 3D movie…especially if they plan on snacking!

…Then again, we suppose they could always smuggle in Skittles in their pockets or purses. Ha!

Do U think Richard Greenfield is right? Did the 3D factor affect your decision to go see Pirates or not?

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never Director's Fan Cut Out This Friday!

never say never gets re released this friday in directors cut

Thinking about trying to catch one more Oscar nominated film before this Sunday's Academy Awards? Forget it!

Sure, you've heard wonderful things about The King's Speech, but you've got bigger fish to fry now because Justin Bieber: Never Say Never Director's Fan Cut is being released THIS FRIDAY!

That's right, Bieblievers! Last week, we mentioned that Paramount was considering re-releasing the film with additional footage, and now it's happening…even though the original version is still in theaters.

The film is being released solely in 3D, and it will run for ONE WEEK ONLY until they extend the release with 40 minutes of new footage, and 30 minutes of footage from the original cut out.

For those of you out there who are opposed to this idea, you can still catch the original version of the film in glorious 2D!

Here's what director Jon Chu had to say about the new cut of the film:

"I realized I had an embarrassment of riches when I was I in the cutting room. This cut allows me to retain some of the best scenes from the original movie, while incorporating previously unseen footage and new material I shot during our extensive promotional tour on behalf of the movie. Justin's dedication to his fan base is unwavering and I was inspired as a filmmaker to attempt to provide them a unique experience that showed even more of his world."

Should be inneresting to see how many devoted Bieber fans return to theaters for round two…and then the sequel AND THEN the director's fan cut of the sequel! Ha!

Will U return to theaters for the new cut of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never?

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part I To Be Released In 2D ONLY!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

harry potter and the deathly hallows part I to be released in 2d only

We cannot express enough how impressed we are with you, Warner Bros!

Warner planned to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I in 3D, but because they couldn't get a quality 3D conversion done by the release date, they've decided to release the film solely in 2D.

Given the fact that Warner was responsible for releasing the poorly executed 3D release of Clash of the Titans, we are ecstatic that they learned their lesson and won't make the same mistake twice! It's refreshing to hear.

Here's the statement Warner Bros released regarding the loss of Harry Potter's 3rd dimension:

Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.

Producer David Heyman said, “For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling’s books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment.”

Director David Yates continued, “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, in both 2D and 3D formats.

We are proud of U for having integrity, Warner!

How do U feel about the next Harry Potter being released solely in 2D?
