The Dark Knight Rises Director Nolan 'Will Join 3D Revolution', Claims RealD

The Telegraph:

Nolan is the one of the last major action directors to refuse to shoot digitally and in three dimensions, arguing that large format 2D film offers audiences a more cinematic experience.

LOL! Yeah right. Nolan is an auteur that has respect for his craft. He's expressed his dislike for 3D. Given the power that he has in Hollywood now, he's simply not going to be bullied into using it. The difference between Nolan and the big name directors this article mentions is that Nolan is still very much an indie director at heart. He's like Kevin Smith or Tarantino in that way. He's not going to succumb to Hollywood trends just cause it's what everybody else is doing.

It wouldn't hurt to be able to see his movies in 3D, though, right?

Why? If the director doesn't have any intentions of shooting the film for 3D then seeing it in 3D would be as pointless as converting 2D source material to 3D on those new 3D TV's.

It's defeating the purpose, really.

I totally agree...he told everyone that he wouldn't do TDK in 3D and as hard as they tried to convince him...he stuck to his guns...

Like that will ever happen. But maybe he will when the tech improves and is good as in detail/brightness/quality as IMAX if not better.
