Someone please clarify for me “30-40 titles out by November” ???
Where did all the 3-D movies come from all of a sudden? A movie has to be specially made to be in 3-D, correct? Where are all the titles coming from?
Is most of this the horrible stuff from last century that flopped and people never want to see again?

I wish 3-D would just die already. Just stop ressurecting it like a bad zombie movie.

@John ... you can convert a movie to 3D in post, but anyone who has seen Avatar (native) and Clash of the Titans (converted) can definitely tell the difference.

It’s MUCH easier with cartoons, which will likely be the majority of the early titles. The Shrek series is one example (and will probably be three of the five or ten first movies released)
