Default 3D in 2D?

If you put the 3D-Blu-ray in a 2D-Blu-ray Player (let's say Sony PS3), is it possible to play the 3D remastered version in 2D?

I think this is a YMMV situation based upon your player and display. But generally speaking, I think the answer is "no."

Although I have been able to play 3D discs in 2D (even on a non-3D display) by turning off 3D in the player and/or display, I've surmised that this is due to the fact that the player is 3D-capable in the first place. There's of course no way to turn off 3D functionality in a non-3D BD player so I've been told elsewhere in another thread on the site that you can't play 3D BDs in 2D on a non-3D BD player, but I have no way of testing that since both of my BD players are 3D-capable.

Hi
I have a standalone bd player (You find it in my profile)
It is a non 3d player
I have a Men in Black 3 3D Blu-ray version
In the box are 2 discs - one with 3D version of the movie and second with 2d version of the movie
I can play both in 2 D

That's quite common to Sony 3D releases. Even though they usually released a 2D standalone the 3D discs were 2D playable anyway. It's the 'locked' releases like Top Gun and Jurassic Park which won't play on anything other than a complete 3D display chain, and you can only get to the 2D left eye version by turning off 3D on the display or player during playback. I wouldn't recommend it with Jurassic Park though, as the 3D version is dreadful in 2D.

You are ignoring the fact that Jurassic Park was originally timed to be a warm looking film, the 2D BD colour is the farthest from the source. StereoD even said they mastered the film to match the original colour timing. Here, have a look -

And here's the 3D BD frame -

It's slightly more reddish, but very close to the prints unlike the 2D BD.

Now, if you think they were lying, or I am, that's another matter entirely.

I think I never remember it looking as warm as the 3D disc does and prefer the 2D disc. Also the 3D disc has DNR. It's that simple.

If they do a new release in 2D using the recent scan I'll evaluate that then.

Well, I've presented as much evidence is possible to be presented by me. Rest is a matter up for debate and possibly will never be satisfied.

If you watch the 3D version in 2D, the color (over) saturation almost looks comical.

In 3D, it's not so bad.
