Default Lord of the Rings Trilogy (3D)

I heard a while back about these being converted to 3D. Just checking to see anyone has heard any updates good or not?

Not going to happen. At least not anytime soon. 2 years to properly convert a movie. And even then, who cares about conversions, honestly?

So it takes 2 years or however long. You sound as if other movies have not been sucessfuly converted. As long as they turn out like Beauty & The Beast and Titanic a lot of folks care including me. Just how do you know it's not going to happen?

It might happen, but there's nothing that says it'll be soon.
If you actually expect something quality, like Titanic(which still is the only older film that looks good in 3D) you'll have to wait 5-6 years.

Especially if they want to work with the Extended Editions.

If they think they can turn a profit from it they'll do it eventually. Also to the person who said "who cares about conversions" tell that to all the people who bought Avengers 3D and Titanic 3D.

I wish they did! It would probably make them more interesting because I find them a bore...

The irony of course being that Jackson suggested converting the trilogy to New Line/WB some time ago,but they flat-out refused. This was around the time Avatar was released. Too bad,cause it would be a great incentive to have all 6 films on 3D BD.
It'll probably happen at some point,though.

It would cost almost 60million to convert these movies into 3D properly.

If the first Hobbit movie does very well at the box office in 3D (assuming it is a 3d movie), I would not be shocked at all to see the process of converting these movies with the intent of re-releasing following the third hobbit film.

Yeah,that ballpark figure is probably correct..... so it would have to be theatrical re-releases to make that kind of money back.

Who knows,maybe one small day.

I'm sure they'd make 60 mil with a theatrical release, I know I'd pay to watch it

Totally relieved this wasn't confirmed for 3D yet, as I just bought the extended Blu Ray set for 40 bucks new. Then again, the conversion would be for the theatrical versions no doubt.

Yes, Titanic, mostly a direct 2D to 3D live action, painstaking conversion, is a brilliant example of a strong 3D conversion. BBeast 3D is also an awesome conversion.

I would be for a conversion of the Rings to 3D also, but only if it's strong as suggested above. I don't want a conversion if it's only on the level of Harry Potter 3D, or Star Wars Episode I 3D in theaters.

Can't wait for the Hobbit 3D December 14th. Cinemark is showing it in 3D 48 frames per second, which I'm interested in seeing, but can imagine it'll look strange at first (like soap opera fps), and not as "cinematic". Will hold judgment till I see it though.
