Part two of Peter Jacksons The Hobbit should bring in an estimate $73million for the opening weekend per Deadline.com
We caught an early sneak peak in Hollywood California at the TLC Chinese theater. The attending crowd reaction was quite positive to the epic 3D action adventure fantasy film.
We were on hand to really check out the 3D which looked pretty good. There were a couple of scenes that need just a little more pop, like the “snowfall” scene. The practical sets were amazing.
There were some moments in the film that I felt would have helped the immersive quality and 3D effect, like the camera placement in relationship to set pieces in the foreground of the scene. Specifically trees and branches, spiny branches close to the lens of a 3D camera with the primary object in the mid or background makes for an amazing 3D picture. I understand there are so many working pieces to the complex puzzle and that set pieces most which are in place prior to the lighting and camera logistics/placement were possibly not an option. For the most part 3D films seems to be getting with better with each new release. We give the films 3D a solid B.

Disney’s animated 3D holiday family film opens in the USA on Thanksgiving Day. Take a look at the trailers and film clips in our trailer section or on our youtube channel Nowplaying3D/Youtube.
The film looks great in 2D let’s hope the filmmakers give the film enough of a 3D pop to make it worthwhile to pay the extra bucks and to don the glasses for a couple of hours.
Disney is including a vintage Mickey Mouse short “Get a Horse” which we’re sure will be shown in the third dimension. Disney seems committed to 3D, which is great…but let’s hope they stop making their 3D film so flat.
I’ll report back after the holiday. If you’ve seen it drop us a note and let us know what you think.
Frozen is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee writer credited with (Wreck it Ralph) one of my favorites. Frozen inspired by “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen.

Oz the Great and Powerful is now available on 3D Blu Ray. Order your copy here on our site coming soon check back under our 3D Blu Ray heading. Oz the Great and Powerful is one of my favorite 3D films of the year. The 3D was excellent, most of the shots were very well planned out. Foreground, mid and background all seemed to be taken into consideration for the 3D shoot. The film had that immersive fantastical quality to it. One of the top in my book. We’ve included a few video clips from the movie which include a behind the scenes look at the fabulous movie sets and a Blooper Reel. The video “Practical Sets” helps explain the detail Sam Rami was able to captured using real or practical sets instead of having the actors act against green/blue screens. It also helps explain the immersive quality the camera operators were able to capture having actual sets as a
backdrop.
