WB Decides To Convert Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ Into 3D

Pacific Rim Header

3D has a nasty reputation for being one of the biggest movie gimmicks ever. Some people may have an appreciation for the eye-popping presentation, but for others, it induces unimaginable headaches and sore eyes. So imagine the disappointment some people going to feel to hearing that Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, which was originally set for only a 2D release, will be converted into 3D.

Variety reports that Del Toro had no say in this and that the decision to convert the film into 3D was made by Warner Bros. Let’s face it, it was only a matter of time before we heard this was going to happen to Pacific Rim. 3D premiums have been giving movies that use the presentation a huge chunk of change for studios. The trouble is that most theaters have no idea how to adjust the lighting for 3D showings, hence the enormous headaches and blurred vision after each showing.

Technically, Pacific Rim will be Del Toro’s first film in 3D. I wonder how much of a factor the director’s lack of knowledge of the medium will play out for the finale 3D cut. No doubt WB will be giving the director some of the top people in the 3D conversion business to help make this film truly eye-popping. Still, that cannot convince me to watch this film in 3D.

What are your thoughts on the conversion?
