Default The Jazz Singer and others, plus The Wizard of Oz in 3D, for 2013







Please remember, don't shoot the messenger on this one...

WB has announced for 2013 that they will release The Wizard of Oz in 3D on Blu-ray.

from darkhorizons.com:

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has unveiled some impressive plans for next year's 90th anniversary celebration of the studio.

First up "The Wizard of Oz" will get a 3D treatment next year for both a theatrical re-release and a new 3D Blu-ray disc release. Also on the way are gigantic 100-film DVD and 50-film Blu-ray collections featuring multiple Best Picture Oscar winners.

There's also a 40-film Clint Eastwood DVD collection with a documentary on the actor and filmmaker. It's being called the largest film collection devoted to a single actor and director in the history of the business.

Plenty of classic titles will make the jump to Blu-ray including "The Jazz Singer," "Cabaret," "Grand Hotel," "Mrs. Miniver," "Driving Miss Daisy" and their James Dean trilogy of "East of Eden," "Rebel without a Cause" and "Giant".

I'll give the 3D theatrical viewing a go. But, I am not double dipping on Wizard of Oz.

A major part of me feels it is just wrong to convert The Wizard of Oz to 3D. What's next, Gone With the Wind in 3D?

I'm sure it's probably popped up somewhere in some discussion at Warner Bros. Like I said, I'll give the theatrical 3D conversion a go. I wasn't too thrilled with the 3D conversion of Finding Nemo, even though that's a Disney film.

I AGREE. They should leave the classics just the way they are. Will not double dip even if they do a remake, it's just WRONG.
I'm very happy where 3-D is going, which is that it's becoming a choice - and thankfully, most people are still choosing 2-D.

Wizard of Oz does not need 3D since it looks amazing!

Not interested

Very interested to know if they'll retain the aspect ratio or crop it to 16x9 for the 3D conversion.

I'm so torn.

I really don't give a hoot about 3-D (I've been accused of being "anti-3D before), but...the idea of Oz in 3-D intrigues me.

If it's done really really well, I'll give it a spin. Either way, I'll buy whatever edition they make - I mean, it's OZ!
If you have to whip out a microscope to decide if you like a Blu-ray or not, you are missing the point.

Not going to lie I'm not so supportive of Wizard in 3D since there already is a technical masterpiece (not to mention I doubt Wizard would even benefit from it) but that's really cool about The Jazz Singer

I got a little too excited thinking the Jazz Singer was the Neil Diamond version!

So is Wizard of Oz only getting a 3D re-release next year, because I wanted to buy the Emerald 3-Disc Edition?

Wizard of Oz will be awesome in 3D! I can't wait! I wished this would happen and it did. I hope they get the Titanic 3D team do the conversion.

Won't anybody think of the CHILDREN!!

Leave the classics alone or our children won't know how these things were supposed to look!!!

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Don't like the idea--don't buy it. enough people don't buy/see it--they will stop.
Market place will decide.

Remember the Circuit City DIVX format.

It wasn't people complaining about it that killed it--it was lack of sales.

No, because it still sells. And Oz, being a fantasy/kids movie, is a perfect choice to convert.

The real question, as someone else pointed out, is whether or not they will re-frame it for 1.78:1 and cut off a chunk of the picture.

They won't do that. I'll eat my socks if they crop it. never happen. Every close up would be cut off at the hairline.
