"eal D, which joined with Industrial Light + Magic, Dolby and the Walt Disney Co. to turn "Chicken" into a 3-D event, could be another candidate to usher a 3-D "Kong" into theaters. Real D is promising that it will announce as early as next week the next film it will tackle. Asked whether that film was "Kong," Real D CEO Josh Greer declined comment. Even if Real D were to take on the assignment, though, it doesn't look feasible that it would be part of "Kong's" initial bow. (For one thing, the Real D-equipped theaters probably still will be showing "Chicken.")

But the betting is, whoever is involved, a 3-D "Kong" will appear in theaters several months into the movie's run. A Universal spokesman denied that any plans are afoot to give "Kong" a 3-D boost during its run, saying, "No, ('King Kong') will not be shown in 3-D." But 3-D fans can still dream, can't they?"

Yea, I was going to post this but you beat me to it.

I'm very excited about Kong. I'm even considering buying the game in the next week. :)

Did read the other day that Jackson has installed a 3D suite at Weta, whatever that means. Sorry, can't remember where I read that. Will dig thru some emails.

Shouldn't all this be called STEREO 3D... and not just "3D"?

4D? But then what's a 3D (CG) stereographic animated film? 5D? Or just genuine 4D? Arghh! My head...

...then what if it has 5.1 channel 3D surround sound??? { head explosion :eek: }

On CGTalk we should be extra careful to say "stereoscopic 3D projection" vs. "3D computer graphics" to avoid confusion.

As long as we're nitpicking terms, 5.1 (and even 7.1) sound are actually 2-D, since all the speakers ideally are positioned at the same height. They're all on a plane.

They could probably get away with calling stereoscopic film "4-D" because it moves, and therefore has a time component...

It's all marketing.
