Lionsgate teams up with Samsung to convert more films to 3D, starts with Gamer, Crank and Bangkok Dangerous
Got a 3D TV? You’ve probably noticed that not all depth perception is equal. It’s true, not all films have the privilege of being shot in 3D — many are converted in post production, and more still make the switch years after their initial release. Lionsgate and Samsung are planning to expand the latter category. Using Sammy’s proprietary 3D processing technology, the two firms will dimensionalize a handful of films from Lionsgate’s catalog, starting with Gamer, Bangkok Dangerous, Crank, and The Descent. More title are on the way too, slated for future release on DVD and Blu-ray. Groundbreaking? No, but worthwhile for 3D connoisseurs. After all, 3D conversion served Star Wars, I, Robot and Disney well enough, didn’t it?
