I'm Turning 3D, I Think I'm Turning 3D I Really Think So!!

It's getting all 3D up in here.

Men in Black 3D:

Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reports he talked to director Barry Sonnenfeld, who revealed that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are returning as agents J and K, respectively, in Sony's Men in Black 3D (yes, in 3D).

The Green Hornet:

 Sony Pictures comedy "The Green Hornet" has been delayed again from a Christmas to a January 14th 2011 release reports Heat Vision.
The reason though is to allow 'Hornet' to undergo a 3D conversion. The extra time will apparently allow the production to "produce all of its visual effects shots in original 3D" and also five the studio a weekend frame with sufficient screens to release the film wide in 3D.

The Last Airbender:

On the same day Sony decided to convert the Seth Rogen action-comedy The Green Hornet to 3D, Paramount has decided to do the same thing with M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, except that they have no plans to move it off its July 2 release date.

According to Variety, Paramount has been working for over a year testing the 3D conversion process with Stereo D, who also worked on Avatar, and three months ago, they showed Shyamalan some converted footage and he agreed to convert the full movie to 3D.

When all else fails, and we are at our last stand against 3D conversion, we can always count on Chris Nolan

Cinematical got a chance to speak to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight director of photography Wally Pfister, who said that there's a good chance the next Batman film won't be released in 3D . A full IMAX release is possible, however.

"What Chris and I have talked about is doing something cool and something interesting," Pfister said. "[Director] Brad Bird was [saying] 'you've got to shoot the whole thing in IMAX!' I was like, yeah, I've talked to Chris about that."
