In the age of giant blockbusters, it is rare to find one not in 3D. Especially superhero movies. But one of those films this year will be 2D only.
Final Reel is reporting that the 3D post-conversion plans for the Fantastic Four reboot have been cancelled. Director Josh Trank made a statement through 20th Century Fox describing the decision as an artistic one.
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂI want the viewing experience of Fantastic Four to remain as pure as possible for the audience, which means in 2D, just as we shot the movie.ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ
Rumors about the film having no 3D came when the recent promotional material had no mention of 3D despite the earlier ones claiming otherwise. The no 3D is some what refreshing, considering the era we are in. And it is probably good news for those who dislike the use of 3D.
But this announcement might add more fire to all the other rumors surrounding the film. Rumors have been constantly being spread about the difficulties on set and the need for reshoots required for the film. Rumors also are swirling that those reshoots have put the film over budget. The need for reshoots might be part of the reason why the 3D was scrapped. But reshoots aren't necessarily a bad thing. Most movies now days have some form of reshoots.
Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller, Jaime Bell, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Toby Kebbell. It is directed by Josh Trank. It will be out August 7, 2015.
