James Gunn Pushes for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ 3D Experience

– by Gig Patta

If you’re going to see a 3D movie this summer—should it be the “Guardians of the Galaxy?”

Director James Gunn thinks so.

On Gunn’s Facebook comment discussion, he couldn’t hide his euphoria for the Marvel movie.

Here’s the full content he wrote:

Just got out of working on the Guardians cut for IMAX 3D and I'm unbelievably excited about it. Guardians of the Galaxy has been planned as a 3D film from its very inception. Yes, if you see the film in 2D, you'll get a full experience. But the 3D experience promises a little something extra. Unlike many directors, I've been actively involved with converting every shot to 3D, making sure it works perfectly for the story and the film, making sure it's spectacular and immersive without being silly, distracting, or overly showy. 3D conversion was once far inferior to shooting in 3D, but over the past couple years new technology has allowed us incredible control over the 3D effects, making it equal to or in some cases greater than shooting in 3D.

As an EXTRA benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I've personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and, again, I love how it's coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually a part of the storytelling.

Just wanted to share some of this stuff with you guys since I haven't had a chance to talk about the 3D much. Hope you're all having a great day. Hi!

That’s an interesting pitch. So do you plan to see the movie in 3D? Let us know below.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is in theaters on August 1st.
