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.
3D is here to stay,get used to it.

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.

Probably 3D conversion will become better and better and at some point of time it will really make a great 3D movie from a 2D one but I cannot say that this is valid for the releases until now.

Titanic's and Jurassic Park's very impressive 3D proves you can take a flat image film, and with modern computer animation 3D editing tools, give it conversions with 3D on par with the best 3D out there.

I'd be happy to see the same quality given to the Lord of the Rings movies, the theatrical releases no doubt. The Hobbit has really nice 3D. Looking forward to the next one. Anyone catch Peter Jackson's one time announcement with a preview of The Desolation of Smaug?

Just seen this listed on Amazon Uk. Seems the Trilogy might be getting the 3d treatment

It's extremely unlikely that is the final artwork but we'll see. It's probably just an error in the mockup

Want to manually convert 2d to 3d yourself and accurately - not with an automated software? Check out my topic and tutorial here.

I think it could be a mock up. I think Entertainment in Video holds UK rights.

If it's real it certainly is an interesting and sound release strategy. Release in promotion with TDOS 3D Blu-Ray and then release the Two Towers in promotion with the final Hobbit 3D Blu-Ray in 2015 and ROTK at the same time or a little latter. Then they could re-release them into cinemas every year after the last Hobbit for a big screen re-release in HFR 3D. The HFR up-convert would separated the home video 3D releases. It all sounds like something Peter Jackson would do and try to squeeze in, after all he is a man of excess lol. So that would could mean TFOTR IN HFR 3D in cinemas December 2015 with the others following every year after.

That is quite the movie conspiracy theory I have concocted lol.

If it's a kickass conversion, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I doubt that PJ has had enough time to devote to any potential conversion, so it's still wishful thinking at this stage.

But there were rumblings about a 3D conversion when they started shooting the Hobbit a couple of years ago...

But it's nice to have that option of 3d.

In all honesty even though I saw Smaug in 3D it was just ok, I will probably buy Smaug in 3D once the price drops but not at it's premium. To DD for TOTR 3D trilogy I would need to read good reviews on the conversion. I am already planning to DD on the extended editions of LOTR in 2014.

I haven't bought any LotR sets yet. So hopefully a set containing all 6 films in extended versions with extras and 3D will be released in 2015. That's what I'm waiting for.
5 discs per film here could work out perfectly for the original trilogy.
Discs 1 & 2 - Extended Edition
Discs 3 & 4 - Extended Edition 3D
Disc 5 - Extras (Appendices etc from the three DVD discs put on one BD disc)

Figures I just upgraded my EE dvds to the blus. If true I'll probably DD if the conversion is good, but only after a boxset.

That would be sweet.

And expensive.

But I would buy them - to epic of a release not to.

This is what they did for the 3D jumbo steel of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Extended Edition):

Discs 1 & 2 - Extended Edition 3D
Disc 3 - Extended Edition
Discs 4 & 5 - Appendices

They may do the same for this release of FOTR.
