Well, this was expected. With the ever-growing international market, Warner Bros. Pictures have decided to release the Guillermo del Toro-directed film Pacific Rim in 3D. This should play well in international markets where 3D is in high demand right now. It's a safe studio move, especially for a big budget epic like this one. Thanks to Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter for the info.
Bleh, I am really interested in this movie, but I could care less about 3D...especially post-conversion 3D. Definitely will be getting the 2D ticket for this one.
There are only certain films that I tolerate 3D anyway. I usually see all movies in 2D. Then there are those few special ones that I will see in both to compare.
filmed in 2d = watch in 2d.
and apparently that's the way Del Toro wants it.
