3-D has certainly been lucrative for studios and theatres thus far. Despite mixed reviews which especially warned of the bad 3-D, both Alice in Wonderland
and Clash of the Titans
were big hits. If the public continues to lap up anything that is 3-D, paying the increased ticket prices for these pictures, then every big-budget studio picture will be released primarily in 3-D in short order.
I had hoped for a public backlash against converted 3-D films, but so far, no such luck. I'm sure Scott's eye for intense visual detail will lend itself well to the format, especially if it begins life in 3-D, but few filmmakers are so gifted/obsessed with such details.
