“Man of Steel” Confirmed for 3D, IMAX Release
Warner Bros. says post-conversion was on the table from the get-go
“Man of Steel,” Zach Snyder’s Superman reboot, may be one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2013, but Warner Bros. has just made sure it will make the most money off it: confirmation has come that it will be released both in 3D and IMAX.This is the first time that word even gets out that “Man of Steel” won’t be in traditional 2D, but Warner Bros. insists that this was always the plan.
However, the film wasn’t shot on either 3D or IMAX cameras, so fans rushing to buy the premium ticket might want to give it a second thought.
There is also the options of trusting Warners and Snyder on how this was always the plan.
“Anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow ‘Man of Steel’ to captivate those movie goers, while respecting fans who prefer a more traditional cinematic experience. We’ve taken great measures to ensure the film and the story come first, and 3D is meant as an enhancement,” Snyder says.
“Man of Steel” will be out on June 14, 2013.
