Converting Godzilla To 3D – Video Featurette

By Heath McKnight (doddleNEWS)

We’re getting closer and closer to the new Godzilla’s release, and a new featurette has debuted, with tons of new footage, showcasing, albeit briefly, the conversion of the film to 3D. Take a look:

Post-converted 3D has improved a lot since the horrible and rushed conversion of the Clash of the Titans remake, way back in March 2010, which Warner Bros. took a lot of heat for. They were trying to cash in on the excellent (and native) 3D of an otherwise forgettable film, Avatar. The studio saw how much money they could make, and did a hasty and infamous conversion.

I’d argue that many films that are shot in 3D, with the exception of the new Hobbit movies (also shot in HFR, high frame rate, of 48p), also feature quieter scenes, such as dialogue, in 2D, then post-converted. That was the impression I got with Prometheus, and especially The Amazing Spider-Man. But I’ve also seen some post-converted 3D movies, shot natively in 2D, that looked great, including Pacific Rim and the otherwise meh Iron Man 3.

Godzilla opens May 16, 2014, and is from Monsters director Gareth Edwards, along with Legendary, Warner Bros., and Toho Pictures. It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, and Bryan Cranston, and opens May 16, 2014 from Legendary and Warner Bros. Here’s the plot:

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).
