Sounds like a cool experience, even if just to see it in theaters again.

Uh, the problem is that Universal is going to go door-to-door confiscating everyone's VHS, laserdisc, DVD and Blu-ray copies of the film, erase everyone's memories of said film "Men in Black"-style and then force everyone at gunpoint to see the 3D conversion. Hence the outrage.

So yeah, Fuck You Universal. Seriously.

I really like JP. Not as much as I did when it was first released, because it was AWESOME then.

However, I've now seen it so many times that I can barely get interested in a 3D theatrical release. Especially since it's like $15 a ticket

I don't really care about seeing this in 3D but if a regular rerelease happens at the same time I'd probably check it out.

Oh my God, that 20 years burns me. I hate being reminded so much time has passed.

Really had fun seeing this when it came it. Haven't watch it since maybe 96 or 97, so I think I would have fun going to the theater to see it again. I may even brave it in 3D.

92 was really Speilberg's year. I hope there's a 20th Anniversary re-release of Schindler's List too. In 3D. And a blooper reel during the end credits.

I wonder what the costs are for 3D conversion and prints? Are they simply printing money to do this or is it a risk?

I think this was the first movie I saw multiple times at the theater. It was one of the few THX theaters in San Diego at that time. I remember how awesome the sound was and I couldn't wait to nab the laserdisc when it came out.

I would definitely see this again in the theater. Not sure about the 3D, though.

Post 3D conversion averages $100k/min.

So this will cost $15M plus what...another $5M for marketing. Would it really do $20M plus? I love Jurassic Park but have literally seen it a hundred times. It's just background noise for me at this point. I hate 3D and really don't see the big deal about seeing older movies again in the theater, especially ones I've already seen numerous times.

I'm guessing it's just as much for people who have had kids since it came out and want them to see it as it is for the 'grownups'.

I have no problem with this. I was never crazy over the movie. But it's a solid candidate for 3D.

It's crazy how good the effect were, compared to the transition into so-so CG. Done now, everything would be rushed CG, which takes me out of the experience.

Blu-ray + projector = good enough for me.

When I was 13 years old, seeing this in the theater was a fantastic experience! I'm with the others who said they're in for a 2D showing. I'd love to see this on the big screen again!

I couldn't care less about a 3D viewing. As cool as it could be I know a shitty cash grab post conversion job just won't appeal to me.

I'd probably see this in 3D. The same way I'd see BTTF in 3D... I'm a huge fan of the movie because of my childhood.

Sure, why not.

Is this the first catalog Spielberg movie to get the 3D treatment? I wonder if he'll wind up regretting doing this...the way he regretted the special edition of E.T.

You know, I'd MUCH rather see Close Encounters in 3D.

Seriously. Who the fuck is running Universal right now?

While April looks solid with American Reunion and The Five-Year Engagement, both films cost relatively cheap to produce. American Reunion only cost $50 million (five-million less than American Wedding) whereas The Five-Year Engagement has a $13 million budget.

We then move into May with Battleship. A film based off a board game with a $200 million production budget before prints and advertising. Unless word of mouth is through the fucking roof when it starts its worldwide release next month, I don't see it being a cash cow for the studio unless it somehow magically clears more than $300 million worldwide. Doable, but I haven't seen an audience react positively to the trailer yet.

The only other three films they have out this summer constitute of Oliver Stone's Savages which happens to be another Taylor Kitsch vehicle (seriously?), Seth MacFarlane's first foray into live action (Ted) and a reboot of the Bourne franchise. The problem with both films? Budgets. God knows how much Universal let Stone run amok with, but Ted is a hard-R rated picture with a $65 million budget which is risky considering MacFarlane hasn't proven himself in the film arena. The Bourne Legacy has been confirmed to cost more than $100 million with rumors it could've spiraled costing close to $160 million. For starters, The Bourne Ultimatum only cost $110 million to produce and that was the third film in an already proven franchise with a returning cast and crew (ahem, Greengrass and Damon, ahem). How much is Edward Norton commanding for his role in the film?

Universal only has three more pictures to release to close out 2012 all which come out in November and December. 47 Ronin, a $175 million 3D samurai film starring Keanu Reeves. Les Miserables which hasn't even started production yet and comes out by Christmas, so expect a budget within nine figures. Last, but not least, Judd Apatow's This Is Forty which is rumored to costing under $40 million.

It's clear that Universal has no idea what the fuck they're doing and Taylor Kitsch might damage the studio more than he did at Disney this past week, but Apatow can budget a film.

Wrong.

While Titanic's 3D post-conversion is the highest budgeted at $18 million ($102,000 a minute), others cost significantly less. Most 3D post-conversions, a studio spends anywhere from four-to-eight million which roughly comes out to about $50,000 a minute give-or-take.

....and this. My oldest daughter will be around 9 by the time this hits. I have the BDs but I'd much rather her see this bad boy the way it was intended to be seen.
