Christopher Nolan Converting Inception to 3D

Posted February 25, 2011 04:22 AM by Juan Calonge

Warner Bros.Christopher Nolan has often voiced his reservations about 3D movies and especially stereoscopic conversions. However, during a recent interview, filmmaker Jonathan Liebesman (director of Wrath of the Titans) surprisingly revealed that Christopher Nolan is currently converting Inception into 3D, with a view to a future 3D Blu-ray release.

There is no formal information about a street date or any other release details at the moment.

I wouldn't believe it unless Nolan said it himself. If Nolan isn't impressed with 3D filming (where it's filmed with a 3D camera) I would have thought he would be less of a fan of the conversion or a 2D film into 3D.

^ Couldn't agree more. And as much as this may tickle some peoples pickle, seeing an up converted movie is displeasing, although this film would have gained a bit of kudos if shot in 3D adding more depth to the picture such as Avatar did in theaters. Still, if it ain't broke...

I hope this isn't true because the movie is fine the way it is. It was not meant to be seen in 3D in the first place because it's not like the movie was made at a time when the technology wasn't available to shoot it with 3D cameras and get a good outcome. So there is definitely no need for a conversion.

This would be very disappointing if true. As a person who isn't very fond of 3D in general, it was exciting that one of today's most acclaimed and financially successful filmmakers was standing up against it.

^I agree with Holmes, Danzg and Marlon Dingle! If this true then Nolan is kind of a sell-out.. Ending up doing what he's been against ever since the start... Start of the 3D fad. All to make a quick buck! Inception doesn't NEED 3D, it's fine the way it is! Since it wasnt shot in 3D, it wont look good.

What's next, they're gonna put a lot more extras on this 3D Blu Ray?? That would be unfair!

If true I see this maybe as some sort of (contractual) obligation or Warner's pressure on Nolan to release something on 3D, since I think him and Pfister are not big fans of the technology (like the upcoming Batman not 3D but shot on 70mm imax unlike other warner superhero movies), and Warner may think these duo (Nolan and Pfister) have enough following to give 3D the needed boost not only in popularity but credibility as well.

If WB owns Inception can't they just say to Mr. Nolan we are going to convert this movie to 3D with or without you??? So Mr. Nolan just goes along with it so they don't mess it up. I could be wrong.

This is old news, Nolan stated in an interview months ago that there was wish for this to be in 3D - and an idea to put it on HBO in 3D also. They even went as far as to do tests of certain scenes in 3D and Nolan stated where he was impressed with the post conversion that he still wasn't happy with the overall quality but didn't see it as an impossibility in the future

@ganzd: give it a year. 3D is already dieing except for kiddie films. I know of two nearby theatres who now take only 2D versions of 3D films. The manager has told his bosses that 3D just ain't selling in his neighbourhood.

Give Chris a little slack folks. This is Hollywood. Even the best directors sometimes have to give in to the bean counters and do things to their movies they didn't want to do. They are not all George Lucases or Peter Jacksons who can write their own tickets.

@Mcrabtree i know I am in the minority but I have good reason to hate 3D. I am blind in one eye. I have had to skip almost every recent IMAX release because it was IMAX3D ONLY. It really upsets me that I have to miss out on an incredible aural experience because of stupid 3d. I dont know asingle person who does not complain of headaches after a 3D viewing experience.

I always saw Nolan as the last great hold out for 2d, now I am worried that Warner is filling his pockets and it will cause me to see "Dark Knight Rises" at a regular crappy theater instead of awesome IMAX because IMAX will be 3D only.

That is why I complain about 3D, kind sir.

If this is true, then it is terrible news!

Just ask the question, why? What is the point? Is there a benefit? No! Inception does not need to be in 3D at all, and I really hope that Nolan does NOT convert it!

At first I had no problem with 3D (have seen a couple of 3D films at the cinema), but now it's beginning to really piss me off! A lot of studios are just converting there rubbish films (Clash of the Titans) to make even more money, you leave disappointed with the film and with the 3D!

I'm not saying 3D should be abolished, but firstly, only films which are being FILMED in 3D, no conversions! Secondly, we do not need to see our favourite older films in 3D, and also just stick with films with a benefit of being in 3D (Avatar), not something like (The Green Hornet)!

2D to 3D conversion can look amazing if done right, proof is "Alice in Wonderland" which looks better than some of the natively shot 3D movies. It's truly a reference 3D demo disc. Plus there is nothing to get fussed about, no one is pulling the 2D version off the shelves. I say bring it! We need more good 3D content, and less 3D crap.

As much as I dislike these news, I think it it highly necessary for Mr. Nolan or Warner Bros. to receiver our disapproval of this. This can't be done, it just can't. Inception was shot with the idea of using every type of high quality mm camera including the the Arriflex 65mm cameras along with 35mm and Vistavision. I think that he should just leaver Warner Bros. after the Dark Knight Rises. With their 3D direction they are taking, it is not looking like a good thing for him, they will only limit his creativity. Please Mr. Nolan, get out of Warner Bros. before its too late! There is still time.

I thought he didn't want to film it in 3D because he didn't want to go digital for the filming, as he doesn't think the quality is high enough. It would seem to me that he didn't want to go messing with the quality of the 2D film just to offer 3D, which I can understand.

Until we hear this news from Nolan HIMSELF- not just another director on WB's payroll who has probably never met the man- will I waste any more time thinking about this.

People love to mouth stuff off in Hollywood. I mean the guy who wrote Kick-Ass has been saying almost weekly its sequel is Matthew Vaughn's next film since before he started shooting X-Men:First Class and everyone associated with the project (actors, producers, director) have said nothing is happening on that front.

Sad news indeed, although I have to disagree with those who say it's fine the way it is. For me it's not a matter of what this does to the movie. I have no plans to watch Inception in 3D regardless, so I couldn't care less about changing the way it is. It's a matter of Christopher Nolan wasting his precious time on a stupid project when he could be writing more brilliant scripts like Inception. I really hope this isn't true. We need the champion of the people's tastes in movies to be working on something worthwhile.

Someone in Hollywood must have pressed the PANIC button. We've almost all seen Christopher Nolan's movie Inception, great movie with brilliant conceptual storyline. Now let's all move on. What will 3D do? It won't change the story. Same cast as before. Just an added gimmick... Let's add 3D. Why? Because the accountants in Hollywood are running the show or so it seems. That's why we see so many remakes these days. Shut down original creative thinking and replace it with bottom-line profit and loss figures before we entertain any other idea. Milk it for all it's worth! 3D at all costs because we can sell tickets at higher prices to inflate our ever diminishing returns. Who cares what the audience wants... they'll get used to 3D when they run out of options....
Newsflash!!! 3D doesn't sell that well as it used to. Audiences are not so forgiving as you might think - word spreads fast and upconversions of 2D movies are such a turn off to many people. Treat your audience with some repect. The last time I checked the audience STILL had the option to see the movie in 2D... haven't checked in a while, though. Only time will tell if 3D is here to stay.

after getting a 3D TV i am all for 3D and yes it is here to stay it actually looks like you are looking into another world when watching 3D on the TV.
but 3D convertion is not always good. Alice in Wonderland is freaking fantastic and i think that is the only succesful convertion done. But inception in 3D that was never meant to be in 3D to begin with is not gonna work that goes for all movies that are being converted with no 3D in sight. it was different with Alice and movies like Piranha because they was shot with 3D in mind. So i also think Titanic is gonna be a big mistake to convert to 3D. Cameron is really full of himself. He should release Titanic in 2D in glorious HD on blu ray instead.

After he said no 3D TDKR, this would be an odd decision. If it's his. Maybe the studio is trying to cash in. I think it would have been cool in 3D, but it wasn't filmed that way so I don't know why they would do it now if they didn't before. I think every movie should be 3D if they would do what Cameron did in Avatar. 3D is good if you film it that way to begin with. I haven't seen a converted film yet, so I'll wait to see how well it can be done before passing judgment. But it makes no sense to film in 2D if you are just going to convert it. Why not just film it right and not rely on digital hacks?

A convoluted, incredibly unreleastic & laborious film to watch to the end won't suddenly get better. Inception will still suck in the 3rd dimension... no stakes, no tension and no characters.

Sadly for the fans, it also won't add any extra 'dimensions' to those on-screen caricatures for what Nolan thinks passes for characters.

I don't get it. Why are people so opposed to converting this film or any other film to 3D for that matter? Probably because they don't have a 3D television for one. I'm sure these are the same people 50 years ago would have said that color TV was going ruin television. They probably have a 25 year old 19" Zenith console TV with a built in phonograph player hooked up to their DTV converter and think their picture quality is just as good as 1080p HD signal. Truth is giving the consumers more options is a good thing, especially when it comes to 3D content. If the public wants it, it will previal if they don't, it will fail. Don't be a hater for new technology just because you don't like it.

Piranha 3D was shot with regular camera and was then converted to 3D in post-production. When they shot the movie that was their plan from the gate though. 3D was not an afterthought. Check out IMDb Trivia section for the movie in case you doubt me.

Good article on Engadget about the whole 3D or not to 3D that is the question?

Technically It should be fine if given the right amount of time and treatment. I think Nolan would not accept anything of the standard that rush releases tend to produce..

Given also that James Cameron and George Lucas are currently involved in similar projects. (2d>3d conversions that is) there must be some form of comfort and acceptance of the process..some knowledge that we armchair experts aren't aware of hahah

I have no negative knee jerk reactions to the news of the movies conversion itself with the exception that at the back of my mind I remember Mr Nolans stance on the whole 3d thing and thought it odd -,-*..

Wow! I can't understand all the hate for 3-D. I love 3-D and can't wait to get a 3-D setup in my home one day. Why wish it to die? Why do you care that much, there are people like me who are excited about it and I hope it succeeds! If you don't want to see a movie in 3-D then don't watch it in 3-D. Now I am someone who doesn't like 2D to 3D conversion so much, I have yet seen any good examples of it being as good as native 3-D. I can maybe understand a studio trying a conversion on an older non 3-D film, but movies being made today should be filmed native from the start. I haven't seen the 3-D Blu Ray of Alice, but did see it theatrical and thought the 3-D was terrible, so I am going to guess from the reviews of it's BD release that they worked more on it? I really hope studios would start releasing the older 3-D films already.. like House of Wax from the 50's!

For those of you who are believing what you've just read AND reacting as if Nolan has (actually) SOLD OUT...

I must say that you're DUMBER than you look and I don't even know what you look like. LoL

3D is just a marketing ploy to charge more for movies. I hate 3D!

Another 3D transfer? When is it going to end? I smell a double dip and one that I wont have anything to do with. Like Mr Joshua said 3D is nothing but a marketing ploy to charge more for movies. I couldnt agree more.

Dear Mr. Nolan,

Converting Inception is both stupid and lame. But if any filmmaker has earned the right to cash in on a moronic consumer trend, you certainly have. Let me know when the scratch-n-sniff edition of Memento comes out. and I thank you on behalf of David Fincher for throwing the artistic integrity ball back in his court. That third "D" is for "Deez nuts".

I wonder how many of the 3D haters already own Inception? If they do, what's the point of complaining? They already have it.

I dont understand the complainers. No one is forcing you to buy the 3D version of Inception. Would you guys like it if I said," I hate 2D, it should die. You should only be able to watch in a movie in 3D"? No, you wouldnt.

I am sick and tired of this 3D argument. If you dont want Inception 3D, then dont buy it.

It IS pointless to complain about this release. As it is pointless to be complaining about the people complaining about this release. It's the internet and we're all a bunch of complainers. If you have a complaint about that, well you're already home baby! Jump on in the complain pool, the water could be warmer and it's too crowded!

If Nolan does decide to move forward, I'm sure he'll prove all of you 3D haters wrong by making his epic film even better. Like most things, there are right and wrong ways to do things, and 3D is no different. And please, lets keep in mind a LARGE portion of Avatar was in fact converted. Yeap, sorry to break the news to you.

3D for me is like Tyler Perry movies. I'm glad they make some people happy, hold no grudge against them being made, and hope they are around for as long as people want them to be.

but I still think they all look retarded.

Adding 3D won't affect the quality of Inception on your 2D Blu ray release so all this moaning is eh. It's great they are giving us choices to what we can buy and people want the 3D option to die lol. I would be interested in watching this movie in 3D.

I hope he's not selling out and would cheapen such a fine movie like that.

No credible proof though. I could see WB doing it without him though, that may be the case. Guy should be knee deep in TDKR right now.

3D is a gimmick. A cheap way to make money. Plus, all it does is just give you a headache and ruin the experience. First classic Disney movies to 3D, then The Room 3D, then porn 3D, now this? 3D has got to go.

Wow prkprkprk, in that case why advance at all? Why shoot digital, anamorphic, or even use color? Maybe we should just do away with film all together and go back to cave drawings. It's interesting to hear that so many members are afraid of advancing technology in cinema, especially on a site like this. I love my record collection as much as the next person, but I still respect the evolutionary process. Martin Scorsese isn't afraid of 3D. Does that make him less of a filmmaker?

So if someone does not like 3D, they are anti-technological evolution by default? Or they are "afraid" of not only new technology but any advancement in technology. Now that's interesting to hear.

3D rhymes with hyperbole.

question Vkingfan... just how long did it take you to get rid of you VCR, Laserdisc Player and movies? a person doesn't have a $2700.00 3D t.v.... maybe you can donate one of your 12 sets to me... until then, my 42" and 32" LCD t.v.s will be just fine... tube t.v.s and phonographs... two things that should never be said on a BLU-Ray site.. lol

I can't believe there's any truth to this rumor. Christopher Nolan's stance on 3D seems clear. And, aside from story, he seems more enamored with IMAX to deliver spectacle anyway.

DanaCameron7320 - yeah it's a safe bet to file this under "I call bullshit" until we hear from Nolan himself about it. But it gives us nerd and dorks something to steam each other over in the meantime.

"Yeah, I saw Nolan at a seminar last week. It was called Milking it Dry: How to Get Every Penny Possible Out of Your Movie. James Cameron was the keynote speaker."

Good one!

jdub178- but what does he know? He's just a cinematographer. Does he not realize a lot of people here just bought 3D tv's and need content? Obviously he just hates all new things like the rest of the anti-3D crowd right?
