Will ‘Dawn Treader’ Be in 3D or Not?

A year ago, Fox announced that they would be releasing three movies in 3D in 2010. Speculation immediately started on our site whether or not The Voyage of the Dawn Treader would be one of the three.

Deadline.com has just released an article that talks about how all of the Hollywood studios are converting all of their movies to 3D due to the large success of 3D movies. (Alice in Wonderland being the latest unexpected box office hit.) The article makes it clear that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a clear contender for being released in 3D, but 20th Century Fox still hasn’t decided whether or not to do it.

Hard conversion conversations are being had now at studios on films that include Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Gulliver’s Travels and The Hobbit. Executives are weighing competitive issues and the potential benefits of higher ticket prices against the $100,000 per running time minute that is being used as a rule-of-thumb conversion cost.

Even though not everybody is a fan of 3D movies, the good news here is that VDT was shot prior to a decision being made on whether or not this movie will be in 3D. So we definitely won’t be getting a movie that is all special effects and no story. Releasing this movie in 3D would just be a cherry on top of the ice cream for some and hopefully a whole lot more box office money, which in turn would mean more Narnia movies!

  2. that wud be cool, but ive been in a 4d theater and its kinda just a moving seat with a fan and water spritzer on the back of the seat in front of u. like glorified version of those moving car driving games at chuck e cheese… ok a very gloried version, and much better be cuz it isnt sticky and grimy….. but i dont think they can do smells, just wind and water… and they mite risk lawsuits if they sprayed salt water in ur eye……

    well 3d has it issues and somtimes they try to glorify the movie more than it actually is, but as long as it gets on screen its good with me. but whats with 3d these days is that all the movie will be made now? hopefully not somtimes the simplicity of 2d really captures the essence of the movie.

    Of course, with 3D, it's a case of having the glasses… I wear normal glasses too, so they'd have to fit over them! xD
