Hopefully so. In any event, we're discussing something that's essentially already happened, if you read the studio announcements for upcoming films.
had an 80 million dollar opening weekend, Alice
is on track for 120 million, the next two Harry Potter
movies and Spider-Man 4
are already announced as 3D, Clash Of The Titans
, Green Lantern
, etc etc and so forth...no doubt there are a lot of exhibitors out there saying to themselves "nah, we don't need any of that
Yeah, when I saw all the 3-D previews for upcoming films when I saw Avatar I figured the writing was on the wall. And with that film still being in the top 10 I don't think the studios want to take a chance that it wasn't a factor in its success.
