One of those things in the class of, "I'll believe it when I see it". Like one person in the article said, there have been attempts of 3D in movies before and all have failed. Its not just the cost of producing the movie, but also the cost of converting theaters, changing screens, etc. Besides, as long as the film is projected onto a flat screen, the best that can happen is an illusion of 3D, an illusion which is all too easily shattered and made to look ridiculous.
