SCOOP: Details On The 3D Conversion For MAN OF STEEL
Last Week IMAX posted that Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel was getting post converted into 3D, only to have Warner Brothers dispute the posting. Click here to find out what is really going down on Superman's journey to the third dimension.
Will they or wont they? That has been the question ever since a report from IMAX that Man Of Steel is being converted to 3D. They posted it last week with several news sites picking up the information, then Warner Brothers sent out e-mails saying that the info was false and they have not made a decision on 3D conversion yet. Well according to my WB insider they WILL be converting the film to 3D, and are none to happy with IMAX for jumping the gun on the announcement. The reason they are not happy is because WB had just signed the contracts to do the conversion and was wanting to make the announcement themselves during the films viral marketing closer to the release date. They are wanting to put it off for as long as they can because they know how fans feel about 3D movies and are wanting to avoid any bad press for the flick right out of the gate. The conversion will be handled by two companies who were not disclosed to me. However, I was told that the work on the 3D conversion begins next month in August. To further support this information take a look at the photo to the right that was captured during the Plano, IL shoot by Gregory Zonsius. The piece of equipment you are looking at is a 3D environmental scanner. What it does it scans the environment and takes measurements for the post 3D conversion process.
Another interesting bit of info regarding the 3D conversion is that it was the cause of the release date change that was announced during last years San Diego Comic Con. The film was originally set for release date of December of this year but was moved to June 14th of 2013. The conversion process takes roughly eight months to complete, and Warner wants to make sure they have plenty of time to get it done.
Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, and will be released on June 14, 2013.
