Great idea for a thread Ed (ooh, a rhyme!)

Hadn't realized that Green Lantern has been shot in 3D!.. Excellent!

Sucker Punch can be removed however. Snyder is a fan of 3D, but he didn't want to convert Sucker Punch at the last minute, ala Clash Of the Titans. Still, at least it is being released in IMAX!

I agree, good idea. This reminds me of the following site that I had come across that was also attempting to put together a "Native 3D" vs "Conversion 3D" list.

Great idea for a thread and thanks for getting the list started. There are some movies there that I am pleasantly surprised were filmed in 3D and others that I'm surprised weren't.

It's not being shot in 3D, it a conversion.

It's being shot on Fuji Super 35 film.

For computer animated movies the whole debate on Native 3D shooting versus Conversion is a moot debate. Computer animation is native 3D by nature and exists in 3D in the movies native computer files and for 3D is simply re-rendered from the original digital files. Dreamworks liked to make a big deal about Monsters vs Aliens being the first animated movie originally rendered in 3D initially rather then re-rendered for 3D later but in practice it makes no difference. So distinguishing animated movies as "filmed in 3D" is kind of a pointless excersise.

Live action 3D is different. Since a 2D shot live action movie has no digital files and thus it must add digital shadding on top of the live action footage. Though not much different in principle then any other post-production digital manipulation that 2D movies get all the time now a days it still is creating something that doesn't exist in the original shooting. It adds layers of depth by bringing different objects in the frame and manipulating them forward. Problem is that often times too few layers are added for time and money constraits which gives the movie a "Cardboard cutout" effect where unconverted objects look unnaturally flat next to more well converted objects. 3D cameras have unlimited depth as does the human eye. Thats why shooting with 3D cameras is a much safer but and in general produces superior quality results.

I was going to leave the animated movies out of the list, but figured someone would just add them anyways.

I don't know...the trailers I saw last night before Hugo were obvious that they were converted EXCEPT for the Seuss movie The Lorax which looked so much better, clearer, brighter with true 3D extending beyond the screen.

Im dissipointed at Synder's decision but I respect it. If a proper 3D conversion couldn't be done in time there were really only 2 options. Delay the movie or release in 2D. Since Synder is doing 2 movies at once it seemed inevidible that something had to give. I would have prefered the former but Id rather it lack 3D then be another Clash of the Titans mess.

Im glad Synder's Legend of the Guardians is still 3D and I hope Synder natively shoots in 3D his next live action project.

Agreed. I didn't think much of the decision not to convert at first, but when I saw the comic-con trailer, I was disappointed that the movie wasn't planned with 3D in mind from the very start!

Still, as you say, "LOTG" looks to be a three dimensional stunner! I cannot wait to see it!

Good news, I imagine they have been planning the movie with 3D in mind! Joss Whedon said he is big a fan of 3D during a panel at Comic-Con.

It's a double win: 1. Whedon is a fan of the format! 2. It will be produced in 3D from the very beginning!.. My excitement level for this movie just got kicked up a notch!

Sweet I only can't believe it took Marvel this long. Apparently Marvel considered a 3D conversion for Iron Man 2 but didn't have the time. Joe Johnson admitted could have shot Captain America in 3D but instead converted for some reason. About time we get a native 3D shoot that will be sure to rock

Joe Johnson said the equipment was too cumbersome to work with. They did a test shoot with the 3D equipment and decided to convert. He said that some of the Avatar stuff was shot in 3D and converted, and if done correctly a conversion can look as good as native shot stuff. Then went on to challenge people to figure out what parts of Avatar were shot native and which were converted.
