New Jack City: 3-D! Love it or will you Leave it?

With the extremely successful 3-D opening of Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND this past weekend, one has to wonder whether the 3-dimensional movie process has come of age or, as some are predicting, is an expensive fad doomed to extinction?

For the record, the Tim Burton directed classic fairytale enjoyed approximately $116 million in ticket sales at some 3,728 playdates throughout North America—making it the biggest grossing 1st quarter opening weekend in history!

2,063 of those locations were showing the blockbuster in 3-D and another 188 in IMAX 3-D.

Additionally ALICE IN WONDERLAND’s opening debut weekend brought in another $94 million from international engagements

    I couldn’t agree more. Hate paying the extra bucks just to see garbage in 3D. Thanks for the update.

    I wear glasses so having to put the 3d ones over my regular pair is a pain. Let’s hope they’re just a passing fad.

    And of course what America really needs is 3D glasses for elected officials–to see the REAL situations they created with their preposterous plans like ObamaCare. Also for the Star editors, to report on how bad the economy really is. I spose we could give the entertainment industry a Stimulus Grant to invent those specs.

    So Jack, I heard today they are making a home version of a 3D player, for around $3 grand. Will you be an “early adopter”?

    Took the girlfriend and her daughter to see Scrooge in 3d imax. Huge plastic goggles made for someone with an abnormally small head, slipped over my glasses. It was a novelty and kind of cool to look at for about 5 minutes. Then I went cross eyed. When they can do it without paper glasses or a scuba mask, I might try 3d again.
