    ^ to comment on 3D..

    Hollywood is now pulling away from 3D.. IMAX non 3D films have been getting bigger responses than 3D.. More investment is being more so shifted in making a grand imax experience with the best sound, best picture, and basically trying to bring it to life as much as possible.. with 3D while entertaining, a lot gets lost. pictures are not as crisp and focus gets drawn to specific things while other things get drowned out..

    From what I see from the comments on a few websites I frequently visit, many people are interested in 3D. And there are alternative options for people that aren't. I personally love it. And the home 3D technology is the best that it's ever been. The picture on my TV is wonderful. The problem is now they are pushing aside 3D so they can hype 4K technology (even though they could co-exist).

    There's no denying 3d is yesterday's news and thriller 3d is at least 5 years too late but it's a nice thing to have. If they also release a 4k version that would be really news worthy. If they have the films there's mj reason ut couldn't be 4k.

    There are repeated assertions on here that 3D is 'yesterday's news'. Fact is, it remains big business in multiplexes across the UK.

    The 3D bubble MAY have popped in the home market, but at cinemas we're still slap bang in the middle of the 3D reign. I personally don't care for the format (with exceptions) but the way some people go on here suggests that 3D is on the way out - it's still a massive format and big money maker for cinemas exhibiting films.

    Indeed James Cameron ploughed money into a 3D conversion of Terminator 2: Judgement Day this year and local cinemas here have noted huge demand with screenings selling out over a month in advance. IF there's data out there to suggest the format's popularity is waning in cinemas then I'd be interested to hear it.

    I've only seen one 3D movie and that was Martin Scorsese's "Hugo." It wasn't so bad on my eyes, and I've read that people with glaucoma can't watch 3D-but I didn't get the full effect either, I don't think. My sister and her family only go to 3D movies-they absolutely love it.

    I'm way more interested in the fact that Thriller and the Making of Thriller have been restored-looking forward to getting the DVD.

    Is there a 4K disc coming though? Is that confirmed?

    Same.
    3D is so old hat (VR is the future I think).
    I'm only really interested in the new ending and the other "shocking" stuff.

    What's the difference between 4K and regular HD? Please don't tell me to look it up-I want it in language I can understand.

    The quality is even better. Here is some info:

    Actually I wouldn't be so sure about that. The format is new and Estate has to think if it would sell well. Not all old movies get 4K releases. At least not in many years.

    3D IS yesterday's news. Sales of 3D cinema tickets have fallen in the last few years - in the last year they fell by around 11%.
    There is only 1 TV manufacturer with 3D TV sets in their 2016/2017 product line up.
    Broadcasters like Sky no longer show events in 3D.

    Some major films aren't even released in 3D these days. Those that are released in 3D are generally filmed in 2D and then converted later and the result isn't as good as producing a film in 3D in the first place. But it's a cheap process and the ticket pricess are inflated for 3D so it produces a greater profit margin...for now. With numbers of 3D cinema tickets sold in decline and limited possibility of releasing home 3D products it's only going to be a short time before we see 3D leaving mainstream cinema again.

    Cameron releasing T2 in 3D is not going to strengthen your argument that 3D is alive and well when there's so much counter evidence out there...and that's coming from somebody who booked to see that film at Cineworld.

    It would be cheap to produce a 4K product when they're enhancing Thriller anyway. It would be far more expensive to go back to the original film reels in the future and go through the whole process again. They would have been mad to only generate a 1080 output when they could easily do 4K. They question is, will they release it in 4K now? Or will they decide to wait until later? If they don't release Thriller in 4K I will be amazed.

    Of course they scanned it in 4K now but it doesn't mean that they are going to release it in 4K. They might wait and see how well other 4K releases sell. The format is new.
