According to the Telegraph, Christopher Nolan is not going to show a sign of giving in and jumping on the 3D bandwagon for the latest installation of Batman.
However, RealD’s Michael Lewis, told the newspaper that he heard it all before, underlining that Spielberg didn’t want to give 3D a go only to make use of the format in Tintin, and Michael Bay showing Transformers in all of their 3D glory.
He said he had hoped to get Nolan on board and that it was a “just a matter of time” before the director signed his name on the tridimensional dotted line.
He was quoted as saying:
“I’d love to get Batman, of course. It’s going to be the biggest film of the year.”
He continued to explain that 3D was not about items falling out from cinema screens anymore and that directors were starting to make use of the format in more sophisticated ways.
Having said that, 3DTVwatcher doubts the format is going to go mainstream, not yet. Although, who knows what a good dose of celebrity endorsement can do?
We have a feeling that more questions will be answered when Cameron’s Avatar 2 comes out.
As a quick reminder, RealD is a major supplier of projection systems for cinemas.
