in Inception 3D

“…A second source told me he had also heard that “Inception” was being considered for a 3D conversion but although the strategy would provide a huge launch marketing coup for the new HBO 3D channel, I have not been able to substantiate this plan with anyone connected with filmmaker Christopher Nolan or the studio directly.

Both the HBO spokesperson and a spokesperson for Warner Bros. Pictures say there are no such 3D plans for “Inception” at this time.

Although Nolan is a big fan of his movies being presented in IMAX, it was reported that he resisted efforts by Warner earlier this year to convert “Inception” to 3D in time for its initial theatrical release in theaters.
That was shortly after Warner’s “Clash of the Titans” was being bashed by critics and filmmakers for a poor quality after-the-fact conversion that was rushed at the last minute.

Even without 3D, “Inception” is the fifth biggest movie of the year with nearly $300 million in domestic grosses alone, and is one of only three of the top eight movies this year that was not released in 3D. “Clash of the Titans” is tenth with $163 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

Personal and artistic preferences aside, most filmmakers say that properly converting a movie to 3D requires nearly as much time by the filmmaker to consider every shot as shooting the movie in the first place.
Even if he was interested in a conversion, Nolan has a lot on his plate at the moment. He is co-writing the story for a new Superman movie and is writing and directing the third Batman movie, both of which are in pre-production and scheduled for release in 2012….”

The HBO trailer ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA9bm6P8axs ) has got me pumped to see it again…I only caught it once in theaters, so I can’t wait. Also, what a perfect choice of songs to use (“Without You” by Junip) too…the song fit so well with the way they edited the footage together. Does anyone know if the rumors of HBO eventually having Inception in 3D on their new 3D channel are true? Any idea when we might see that happen?
